Twitter Slays Marco Rubio for Posting Rainbows as Florida Surpasses 10,000 Coronavirus Deaths
Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) has spent Thursday tweeting about rainbows, football, and weather as the Sunshine State’s coronavirus death count pierced the 10,000 mark. Rubio, along with the rest of the Senate, is enjoying recess until next month.
Season opener is just 3 weeks away!

Twitter roasted him for it.
Is there any pertinent Bible verse about the NFL??

Yes nice for them they can afford daily testing and monitoring of everyone. Meanwhile schools opening only to close contributing to continued exponential and untraceable community spread. pic.twitter.com/9AtQ6dLRTH

As a true representative of the morals and agenda of the Republican Party, you care more about your self interest as a football fan than you do of the general well-being of the people you represent

So what you're saying is that wearing a mask and social distancing prevent the spread of covid-19, is that correct? Then why are children being sent back to school with no Appropriate plan in place in your state?

It's amazing what can happen when lots of money & resources, extensive planning, daily testing for all, strict behavioral guidelines that don't allow for (selfish) non-compliance, and accurate, non-suppressed data driven decisions are implemented by pro-active leadership.

Seems like a senate intelligence report that says 🤡 accepted election interference and assistance from a foreign country would be at the top of mind instead, pic.twitter.com/FKf47l2Noc

Some people really could not believe what they were seeing.
What? Is this really your account? I can't begin to understand why this is more important to you than Florida's COVID-19 cases, Russian bounties, unemployed workers, children in cages, the USPS and our democracy in general. What is wrong with you? 😡

They really think no one is watching.

How about caring about the USPS. Just in case you didn't know this intentional slow down impacts businesses too. I am telling you this because I already know you don't care about constituents not getting meds or checks.

Recess must be super boring because earlier in the afternoon, Rubio complained about having to share a name with a tropical storm. Hurricane season will not peak until September 30, but summer 2020 has been a particularly active one, with twelve named storms having formed in the Atlantic since June 1.
The next system will bear the name Marco, and the 49-year-old Republican is upset about it.
“Those living in Texas & Louisiana should keep an eye on this system which would be named MARCO if it becomes a tropical storm,” Rubio tweeted. “Who picks these names?”

Tropical storms are named by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration years in advance. Hurricanes that reach category 3 status, or “major,” have their names retired.
But, as one observer noted, there are two potentials, so whichever one becomes a tropical storm first will be named Marco.
I don’t know. Seems as though he’s be a little more interested in the one headed for … uhhhh… Florida. pic.twitter.com/PD4UD9a2hm

Twitter did its thing.
Looks pretty weak. Will probably fizzle out.
— Travis Akers (@travisakers) August 20, 2020
Wouldn’t worry about it: it will probably threaten to do something important and then just fade away
— Don Moynihan (@donmoyn) August 20, 2020
So right now it’s just… Little Marco?

Well that's just the National Hurricane Center's opinion – they don't use Sharpies in their predictions, so it's probably wrong anyway. We should wait and see what the guy with the marker and the poster board says – like that octopus who predicts the Super Bowl or whatever.

For sake of the folks in its path, I hope it's as weak as its namesake.

2nd most disappointing Marco in the last decade

Here we see the awesome power of Storm Marco, how will we ever rebuild pic.twitter.com/h8tOriQ25A

I'd be real careful If it's named Marco it has a good chance of lying to us and say it's going to hit one place than turn around and try to destroy Florida

Based on the forecasts, Rubio’s Marco will never be strong enough to be a hurricane. Either way, Florida is in the crosshairs.
