Marco Rubio has always come across like a fifth grader who’s nervously reading aloud a book report that his mother wrote for him. When Rubio tries to be one of the cool kids, he falls flat on his face. And when Rubio tries to be a moralist, he comes across even worse.
Rubio posted this bizarre tweet aimed at giving himself the moral high ground and distracting everyone from how badly his party’s President Donald Trump has blown this:
Beyond being grotesque,its bad journalism
We have NO IDEA how many cases China really has but without any doubt its significantly more than why they admit to
— Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) March 29, 2020
Respondents were quick to point out that because the Trump regime is roughly as corrupt as the current regime in China, it’s a given that the U.S. death toll is also much higher than what’s being announced. There’s also no evidence that anyone in the media is happy about the death toll.
The response to Marco Rubio’s idiotic tweet was so swift and negative, “Little Marco” began trending on Twitter. That’s the nickname that Donald Trump once gave Rubio when he was running against him in 2016. Now that Rubio has corruptly aligned himself with Trump’s ongoing murder spree, it’s fitting that Rubio is being forced to swallow a nickname that Trump created.
