A new video has surfaced from Marco Rubio's recent flameout in the presidential primary just in time for his effort to keep his Senate seat warm so he can fail again in his next presidential run, and it's of particular interest to the ladies.
In the video, Rubio was asked if he would support the Equal Rights Amendment as president. Rubio's response?
Ok, so that wasn't his actual response but it's pretty darn close.
Here's the video so you can hear it for yourself:
"That's so outdated. We don't need that anymore."
This is no doubt welcome news for Rubio's Neanderthal base, but women may just be surprised to hear that Sen. Caveman has decided equal rights for women are outdated and unnecessary. Or not. After all, women who've been paying attention for the past five years have observed that according to him, it's Marco Rubio's world, the rest of us just live in it. Rubio thinks that those he's supposed to represent should live their lives according to his personal beliefs. Women shouldn't have equal rights, nor equal pay, unlike Rubio who gets paid for doing nothing and wants to continue that practice for the next _ years. He's also "pro-life" which means he favors forced birth even for teenagers in cases of rape and incest, and now also for women who have contracted the Zika virus and would deny them (and their child) health care. As for women who are the victims of domestic abuse, protection for women from said abuse is also unnecessary per Rubio. And of course, things like same-sex marriage are also out of the question because he says so, but that's a whole other blog post.
As for Rubio's statement "I haven't heard about that in years," here's another newsflash for Marco. The ERA was last reintroduced in 2015 by his colleague, Democratic Sen. Robert Menendez, (as it's reintroduced in Congress every year) but Rubio wouldn't have "heard about it" because he never shows up for work. As we've learned with so many other things, like poisoned water in Flint, and until recently, water woes back home in Florida, if Rubio doesn't know about it, it doesn't exist or is of little importance unless it's somehow politically beneficial to Rubio.
So if Rubio's reelected, buckle up girls. Who knows, your right to vote may be the next thing he finds to be overrated. Better vote him and his ilk out while you still have the chance. After all, this is the man Rubio supports for President now:
