Naomi Biden Burns Marco Rubio Down For Whining About The Senate Gun Reform Bill

President Joe Biden’s granddaughter, Naomi, shut down Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) on Twitter after he whined that he hadn’t been given enough time to read a Senate bill on gun reform that passed the upper chamber on Tuesday.

According to Newsweek:

In a tweet, the Florida senator complained about the time given to read the gun bill ahead of a vote on whether to begin debate on the bill after it had been finalized and released.

“We are being asked to vote tonight to begin debate on a gun proposal whose legislative text was only made available less than an hour ago,” he tweeted.

That was all it took for Naomi to go off on Rubio and put him in his place for the absurd posting.

“Ok—suspend reality and believe you would actually read a bill. The bill is 80 pages & ~13,000 words. The average 5th grader reads ~180 words per min. This means a 5th grader could read this bill in just over an hour. You had that for this vote & 30 hours until the actual vote.”

Others then joined the debate and shredded Rubio, including Fred Guttenberg, whose daughter was shot and killed at Sandy Hook Elementary in 2012.

Maybe if Rubio wasn’t so damn busy trying to decide what Bible verse he’ll tweet out each day in order to give the false impression he’s a Christian, he’d have enough time to read legislation.

Marco Rubio Tries To Tie Transgenderism To Abortion And Only Succeeds In Humiliating Himself

For some reason, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) felt a need to humiliate himself while the entire internet watched, suggesting that somehow transgenderism could be tied to the debate over abortion rights.

On Thursday morning, Rubio sent out a tweet that read:

If we have “pregnant people” then how can Roe be about “a woman’s right to choose”?

See what Rubio is attempting to do? He wants to mock the transgender community and also scoff at those who are worried about what will happen post-Roe v. Wade. Or, as Danielle J. Brown notes in the Florida Phoenix:

Rubio’s tweet criticizes efforts by some Roe-supporters to use gender-inclusive language when discussing abortion rights. The term “pregnant people” works to encompass all those who may seek abortions, which would include cisgender women, transgender men and non-binary people.

Abortion rights advocates have been protesting in support of upholding abortions access, with some emphasizing the need to include transgender people, who do not identify as women but still may need abortions, in those discussions.

Rubio’s tweet also comes in the same week that he put forth legislation that would prevent companies from paying for their employees to travel out of state for abortions or gender reassignment surgery:

This week, he filed a bill called the “No Tax Breaks for Radical Corporate Activism Act,” according to a press release sent out by his office Wednesday.

The goal, according to the press release, is to “prohibit employers from deducting expenses related to their employees’ abortion travel costs or so-called ‘gender affirming care’ for young children of their employees.”

The bill simply says that such deductions cannot occur for “travel for the purpose of obtaining an abortion,” but goes on for 6.5 pages on the specifics of the transgender care.

It defines gender as the “psychological, behavioral, social, and cultural aspects of being male or female.”

Rubio was pelted with righteous anger for his tweet:

Former Police Chief Val Demings Destroys Marco Rubio For Calling Her Soft On Crime

Incumbent Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio is running scared as he looks at the latest polls in his race to get reelected to another six-year term in the U.S. Senate.

How can you tell Rubio is worried? Look no further than a ridiculous tweet he sent out attacking Rep. Val Demings (D-FL), one of the Democrats seeking the nomination to run against him in the general election:

But as Mediaite notes, Demings credentials on the issue of crime are impeccable. After all, she’s a former chief of police:

Demings has represented Florida’s 10th congressional district since 2017 and served as chief of the Orlando Police Department from 2007 to 2011. Demings spent 27 years with the Orlando Police Department, starting off as a beat cop on patrol.

She has also been a vocal critic of the “defund the police” movement in the Democratic Party. She distanced herself from Rep. Cori Bush (D-MO) this week, who defended the slogan, telling reporters:

“Good legislators talk to communities about things that matter to them. When we talk to communities, particularly those in some of the most high crime areas, they will say, ‘No, we don’t want to defund the police. We want to fund the police. We don’t want to see less police. We want to see more police.’ Because they believe if we cut police resources, then they become even more vulnerable.”

Congresswoman Demings wasted no time destroying Rubio:

About all Marco Rubio has done over the last six years is tweet out Bible quotes and pretend to represent the state of Florida. If anyone deserves to lose a Senate seat, it’s him.

Capitol Insurrection GOP Social Media

Adam Kinzinger Burns Rubio Down For Minimizing The Gravity Of Jan. 6: ‘What Happened To You, Man?’

For the past two days, many Republicans have been trying to pretend the January 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol was just a minor event which should be forgotten. Of course, they feel that way largely because they aren’t willing to blame failed, one-term former President Donald Trump and some of their fellow GOP members of Congress for their role in the attack which left five people dead.

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) was one of those Republicans who tried to minimize the gravity of what took place a year ago at the Capitol, posting this on Twitter:

Upscale liberals? What in the hell does that even mean? Is that code for something more noxious that Rubio is trying to get across to the extreme right-wing of his party, which has now taken complete control of the GOP?

January 6 was in many ways even worse than Pearl Harbor or 9/11 because it was committed by our fellow Americans. And it proves that the biggest threat we now face in this country is the enemy within. They have sworn allegiance to one man and are willing to destroy the United States out of blind, fanatical loyalty to Donald Trump.

Fortunately, there are a few rational Republicans left in the United States, and one of them, Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL), a member of the House Select Committee on Jan. 6, took Rubio to task for his tweet:

Problem is, Rubio isn’t better than this. He may have pretended to be at one time, but those days are long gone. Now he’s just another delusional lemming trying to curry favor with the MAGA faithful. Oh, and Marco is also running for reelection in November, so he has to make sure his right flank is protected.

People like Adam Kinzinger should be cheered for their moral clarity and willingness to speak out against the lies they see taking control of their party.

Marco Rubio, on the other hand, needs to be run out of town on a rail and relegated to the ash heap of history.

Marco Rubio Gets Hit With Furious Backlash For Calling The Child Tax Credit ‘Socialism’

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) is absolutely furious that the Biden administration wants to make the $300 per child tax credit permanent, and seems to be suggesting that children should have to work instead of letting their parents get a small break on their taxes.

Perhaps sensing that he’s already on the verge of losing to his likely Democratic challenger, Rep. Val Demmings, in next year’s Senate election, Rubio thought he’d brand the child tax credit “socialism.”

Is Rubio under the impression that the government pays parents $300 a month so they don’t send their kids to work? Or he is suggesting that anyone getting a meager child tax credit will stay home and benefit from that paltry sum?

Either way, Rubio’s arithmetic is all fouled up. It costs a hell of a lot more than $300 a month to feed, clothe, and care for a child. Any parent can tell you that. So are we supposed to let those who earn the least provide for their kids when they’re having trouble keeping a roof over their heads?

Apparently, Rubio thinks waging class warfare over $300 is going to get him lots of votes in Florida, which only proves just how utterly clueless he is and always will be.

The Florida senator was pelted with well-deserved online backlash for his snotty tweet:

Time for Florida to dump Marco Rubio and get a senator who gives a damn about them.
