This is hardly "breaking news" to anyone who pays attention, but Marco Rubio thinks voters are stupid. Or at least he hopes they are.
In the first of his debates against his Democratic opponent Patrick Murphy earlier this week, Rubio tried to snow voters once again by dancing around the question of whether he would commit to serving a full term if he wins his Senate seat back. You know, the one he swore he wasn't running for again when he flamed out in the presidential primaries.
The audience actually laughed at Rubio's "answer" while he dodged and weaved to try and convince voters he really, REALLY wouldn't run for President again in 2020 and thus abandon the job he rarely shows up for again as he did when he launched his failed 2016 presidential bid. You can see that here in a video posted on a new website by the Florida Democratic Party.
But Rubio didn't end the stupid there. No sir. He had more Trump-like lies to tell, and much like Donald Trump, who Rubio happily supports, Rubio chose one that can easily be fact checked. Worse, (for Rubio, anyway) he chose a lie that's stupid on its face.
"If Congressman Murphy trusts Hillary Clinton 100 percent, he’s in rare company, because not even Tim Kaine is willing to say that," Rubio said, "and he’s her running mate."
That's right, Tim Kaine chose to be Hillary Clinton's running mate because he doesn't trust her. And if you believe that, Rubio would like to sell you some waterfront property in South Florida that can double as a "houseboat" of sorts whenever it rains now, thanks to rising seas and climate change, another thing Rubio plays dumb about.
This little statement earned him a "Pants On Fire" from PolitiFact, (I guess only because they don't yet have a "No Pants" rating) because Tim Kaine has been telling voters how and why he overwhelmingly trusts Hillary Clinton since the day she chose him as her Vice Presidential nominee.
Further, Rubio tried to persuade fact checkers it was true by pointing them to an interview Kaine did recently. In the interview Kaine indeed didn't say he "trusts Hillary Clinton," and there was a good reason why: Because during the interview, no one ever asked him that question.
Once again, the only person Marco Rubio proves time and time again can't be trusted is Marco Rubio.
