Rubio, Another Trump Lackey Now…

With just a few exceptions, Mitt Romney being one, the GOP continues to stand behind the most dishonest and corrupt “president” in modern history.

Now Marco Rubio is running interference for Trump with his frankly BS rationale for why Trump is doing what he is doing in regards to the unfolding China scandal.

Trump means what he says and the only reason he is publicly making statements in the open asking a foreign nation to investigate the Biden’s and interfere in our elections is because he apparently believes mouthing it in the open for all to hear somehow makes it A okay.

It doesn’t. Bit it does place Trump somewhere just below bellow slime.

Rubio brushing off Trump’s comments are in stark contrast to Republican Sen. Mitt Romney condemning Trump’s appeal to China and Ukraine. The Utah Republican said Friday that Trump’s encouraging the countries to look into the Bidens was likely politically motivated.

“By all appearances, the president’s brazen and unprecedented appeal to China and to Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden is wrong and appalling,” he added.

Rubio has been a staunch critic of the Trump administration’s policies toward China and has long warned that the country presents a national security threat to the United States.

Sen. Marco Rubio floated the possibility that President Trump called on China to investigate the Bidens for no other reason than to “provoke” the media.

“I don’t know if that’s a real request or him just needling the press, knowing that you guys are going to get outraged by it. He’s pretty good at getting everybody fired up, and he’s been doing that for a while, and the media responded right on task,” the Florida Republican said Friday.

“I don’t think it’s a real request. Again, I think he did it to get you guys. I think he did it to provoke you to ask me and others and get outraged by it,” Rubio continued. “He plays it like a violin, and everybody falls right into it. That’s not a real request.”

Trump suggested Thursday that China investigate his political rival Joe Biden and his son Hunter. Trump’s comments came amid an impeachment inquiry by House Democrats that centers on the president’s July conversation with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in which Trump made a similar request.

“Likewise, China should start an investigation into the Bidens,” Trump told reporters when asked what he hoped Ukraine would do.
