Marco Rubio Dragged By Twitter After Nicolle Wallace Smackdown
Republicans have essentially declared Open Season on Joe Biden and the rest of the Democratic Party as the remaining Trump faithful try to cling to something that resembles hope in the dwindling days of his lame duck period. Now that the Electoral College has officially cast their votes for Biden, you can almost smell the desperation wafting from their rage tweets. They’ll jump on any opportunity to rage against the Democrats, no matter how ridiculous the take might be.
Witness “Liddle” Marco Rubio, who never met a Bible verse he couldn’t obtusely tweet. Rubio was once a vocal Trump critic but quickly leaped over to the Dark Side like his fellow Trump Toadies Ted Cruz and Lindsey Graham, who also had done the same reversal on their former political rival. Rubio decided to jump on comments made by Jen O’Malley Dillon, Biden’s incoming Deputy Chief of Staff. O’Malley Dillon, speaking to Glennon Doyle in the new issue of Glamour Magazine, called the Republicans a “bunch of f*ckers” when asked about working with them once Biden is sworn into office in January.
Said O’Malley Dillon: “The president-elect was able to connect with people over this sense of unity. In the primary, people would mock him, like, ‘You think you can work with Republicans?’ I’m not saying they’re not a bunch of f—ers. Mitch McConnell is terrible. But this sense that you couldn’t wish for that, you couldn’t wish for this bipartisan ideal? He rejected that. From start to finish, he set out with this idea that unity was possible, that together we are stronger, that we, as a country, need healing, and our politics needs that too.”
On Wednesday night, Marco Rubio decided to take that as an open invitation to chime in. “Biden talks about unity and healing, but you want to know what they really think? Read how the person he wants as the next WH deputy chief of staff called Republicans in Congress a bunch of f***ers,” he tweeted.
Nicolle Wallace, the host of MSNBC’s “Deadline: White House” was quick to point out the hypocrisy in Rubio’s tweet, and Twitter users agreed so much that his tweet was still be ratioed on Thursday.

Are we really talking about the f word in any context other than the f-ing people who stood by Trump as he boasted about “grabbing women in the pussy”, smeared “shit hole countries” called black NFL players “sons of bitches” and assaulted our democracy while ignoring covid?

This is the same Marco Rubio who couldn’t tell the difference between John Lewis and Elijah Cummings, so he almost makes it too easy for his critics.
