What is a choke artist?


“This guy’s a choke artist,” Mr. Trump declared, pointing to Mr. Rubio. “This guy’s a liar,” he said, swiveling toward Mr. Cruz.

The Urban Dictionary explains:

"To fail to perform effectively because of nervous agitation or tension so regularly and such a grand scale that one becomes synonymous with the word failure, usually in an athletic contest.
Usually used to describe a very talented person who fails under pressure. "

Rubio apparently sweats a lot when he is nervous, and also seems to respond poorly sometimes and Trump likes to make jokes about it.
