I am still confounded by Marco Rubio openly admitting that he doesn’t give a rat’s ass about his job in the Senate because he wants that promotion … He’s seen in an ad saying, and I quote, “Of course I’m missing votes, I’m running for President.”
And apparently he doesn’t see the problem. He also doesn’t seem to have a problem being an asshatted hypocrite.
Marco Rubio tries to play himself off as “one of us,” though I wonder how many of us would still have a job if we walked away from it because we were looking for another, better, more important job, but I digress. He tries to remind us at every turn about how he’s the son of immigrants … apparently forgetting that, to some extent, we are all the children of immigrants … unless you’re Native American, of course. But here’s the hypocrisy …
In September, Marco Rubio’s campaign manager bragged to reporters that Marco “flies 95 percent commercial, always coach.” And on his website, even Marco Rubio boasts:
“Rather than relying on charter flights on private jets, Marco and the team flies commercial. To date, we’ve flown on American Airlines, Delta, Frontier, Jet Blue, Southwest, Spirit, United Airlines, US Airlines, and Virgin America. If it’s a flight that gets us where we need to go, when we need to get there, we take it.”
In fact, on Rubio’s site, you are encouraged to buy him a plane ticket for $500 and, in return, he’ll mention you on Twitter or his website, or while not doing his job in the Senate, and you’ll receive a postcard from Marco’s travel, signed by Marco and the team, and a personal update on the day from a team member.
The only problem with that is that Marco Rubio is no longer flying commercial, or coach, he’s traveling by private jet. Yup, these days he travels 100% private on a Cessna Citation Excel, at the cost of tens of thousands of dollars a day. And what does Marco Rubio say about this:
“Oh yeah, we can’t get around anymore without the jet. We’d never make it.”
The man blatantly admits he won’t fulfill his job duties because he wants a [promotion, then brags about being one of the people, and flying commercial, while traveling the country on a glitzy private plane.
Yeah. He’s one of us.
Marco Rubio, The Daily Hypocrite.
