Via the Washington Post:
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) said Wednesday that President Obama has "no class."
In an interview with "Fox and Friends," Rubio argued that his GOP rival Donald Trump has not behaved in a way that is "worthy of the office that he seeks." Then, he pivoted to going after Obama.
"We already have a president now that has no class," said Rubio. The Republican, like most of his GOP opponents, has been an outspoken critic of Obama. But his disapproval has mostly been on policy, making his Wednesday comments especially notable.
"I mean, we have a president now that you know, does selfie stick videos, that invites YouTube stars there, people that, you know, eat cereal out of a bathtub," Rubio continued. "You just saw the interview he did right now, where he goes on comedy shows to talk about something as serious as Iran. The list goes on and on."
As evidenced by the photo at the top of this post, Rubio has no problem with posing for selfies, but presumably will stop the practice once he's elected president. But until then....
There irony here is that Rubio made his "no class" charge while appearing on a low-brow show like "Fox & Friends."
In case you don't watch "Fox & Friends," it's a show that, when compared to the Jerry Springer Show, makes the latter look like Masterpiece Theater.
"Fox & Friends" hosts once tried to roast marshmallows over an open flame using their bare hands and plastic spoons.
And just two days ago during a discussion about a shark that attacked surfer Mick Fanning, F&F co-host Brian Kilmeade wondered out loud why beach officials couldn't do more to clear the oceans of sharks to prevent the predators from coming in contact with humans.
“You would think that they would have a way of clearing the waters before a competition of this level,” he opined. “But I guess they don’t.”
“Sure,” co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck agreed. “If a three-time world champion surfer isn’t safe, who is?”
But in making the charge that Obama has "no class" because he appeared on a "comedy show," Rubio conveniently ignored the fact that he once appeared on the same show.
|Stay classy, and thirsty, Marco.|
