Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) is having a really hard time coping with President Donald Trump’s Friday loss at the United States Supreme Court, and so he turned to Twitter to air his list of grievances. It did not go well for him.
Rubio’s first tweet on Saturday morning contained a creepy Bible verse referencing the female anatomy.
“’Most blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb.’ Luke 1:42,” the Senator posted.
“Most blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb.”

The internet quickly pounced on Trump-supporting Rubio’s sanctimonious hypocrisy.

Until it is born then don't expect me to lift a finger to feed it clothe it or keep a roof over it's head. There fixed that for you

If you care about Mary – then you'd care about truth. You know Trump is not Jesus. Urge a transition now. How long will you wait? Bushes, Romneys, Barr, and SCOTUS all said he lost. You should too.

Uh, Catholic here. We have a major Mother Mary complex. 🤷🏼♀️

Congratulations you helped support a failed fascist coup.
It will be remembered. Hope it was worth it.

Less than half an hour later, Rubio returned to all but demand to speak to the manager about how “the left” permitted the Supreme Court to rule on reproductive rights and marriage equality but not on Trump’s seditious coup to destroy American democracy.
“According to the left & their partners in the legacy media, the Supreme Court was the appropriate place to legalize abortion & redefine marriage, but it has no business taking up claims regarding a presidential election,” he wrote.

Naturally, Twitter was not going to allow Rubio’s medieval-minded meltdown to go unchecked.

So can California sue Texas over its restrictive abortion laws? “States’ rights unless we don’t agree,” right?

We cannot normalize how totally insane it is that Trump, 18 state AGs & 106 House Republicans still trying to overturn election 37 days after, when Biden won by 7 million votes, 306 electoral votes certified, Trump campaign lost 55 court cases & presented no evidence of fraud.

In what year is Rubio living?
And now according to the Right, states have no say in who is President and the Supreme Court should just install an unaccountable King

Marco represents Trump. That is all.

Things became even messier in the early afternoon when Rubio resurfaced a third time to brag about all of his accomplishments within the last seven days. A COVID-19 relief bill was not among them, but at least Israel can sleep soundly knowing that Rubio has its back.
“This week alone I got 2 meaningful laws passed in Congress,” Rubio gloated. “My Corporate Transparency Act goes after anonymous shell corporations, often used for money laundering, sex trafficking & terror. My U.S.-Israel Security Act authorizes $3.3 billion annually to help Israel defend itself.”

According to the Worldometer COVID-19 Tracker, 304,681 Americans have died from the coronavirus. Florida boasts the third-highest death count in the United States and the seventeenth largest in the world – 19,785 at the time of this publication.
Rubio has done virtually nothing to help the residents of his state. Thus, his self-congratulatory tweet was not appreciated, to say the very least.
But no stimulus? Weird.

But for suffering Floridians, you did nothing!

Okay, but can we get some COVID aid passed?!
— Min. Kevin D. Jones, Sr. (@kevindjonessr) December 11, 2020
so no money for starving Americans, but money for Israel…Got it..
— Johnny4life (@bigbooktom) December 11, 2020
That’s nice for Israel. How about Americans.
— K A Salerno (@KASalerno2350) December 11, 2020
So, you’re saying that you authorized $3.3 billion to a foreign power, but $0 to struggling American families?
— Benjamin Dowd-Arrow (@dowdarrow) December 11, 2020
Too bad you can't pass something to help people who are going to be evicted 🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄

You did more for Israel with our money than Florida.
— R (@RTShark) December 11, 2020
Marco is again bragging that he did NOTHING to help hat-working Americans devastated by Republican COVID policies.
What a betrayal of US.

Some people are pondering what Rubio’s angle could be, but there is no mystery. He is up for reelection in 2022.
Hey everyone, look who's ramping up his reelection campaign! pic.twitter.com/uWQimd6ogD

No rest for the desperate.
Thirty-nine days until the inauguration.
