Marco Rubio really is a moron.
Throughout former President Trump’s time in office and on the campaign trail, the senior Florida senator has defended anything and everything Trump has said, done and tweeted, no matter how idiotic or illegal. It looks as if Rubio will continue to do so, even as the disgraced president is no longer in office.
The second impeachment trial of Trump is underway in the United States Senate. As House managers provided their opening statements, they played never before seen video of Trump’s traitorous mob as they violently stormed the U.S. Capitol and chanted “hang Mike Pence” as Capitol police tried their best to hold back the insurrectionists.
Prior to any evidence being presented, a majority of Republicans have their minds made up. In yet another sign that the GOP is no longer the party of Lincoln but is instead the party of Trump and his insurrectionist cult, Republicans, for the most part, will vote against conviction.
One of those people who will vote against convicting his buddy Donald Trump is Rubio.
But knowing this fact didn’t stop Rubio from trying to point fingers at Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.
So Rubio admits that a “criminal mob” stormed the Capitol, commenting that the police acted bravely and heroically in the videos presented as part of evidence from the House impeachment managers. But somehow the Florida senator fails to realize/ignores that Trump is the reason why the “criminal mob” was in the Capitol in the first place.
Trump, Rubio and others pushed this lie that the election was stolen from his cult for months and then on Jan. 6, Trump told them to “fight like hell” as they head down to the United States Capitol.
Again, Rubio proves that he has to be one of the biggest idiots in Washington D.C.
