Marco Rubio Downplays Trump’s Alarming Remarks On NATO And Russia ( www.huffpost.com )

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) downplayed former President Donald Trump’s alarming remarks about urging Russia to “do whatever the hell they want” to other NATO countries.

“He doesn’t talk like a traditional politician,” Rubio said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” with Jake Tapper. “We’ve already been through this. You think people would have figured it out.”

At a Saturday rally in Conway, South Carolina, Trump, a NATO critic, said that the alliance was “busted” until his presidency. Trump also recounted a discussion with an unspecified “president of a big country,” specifically claiming he would support a Russian attack against members that didn’t pay enough for defense spending.

“No, I would not protect you. In fact, I would encourage them to do whatever the hell they want,” Trump, who has, ironically, been scrutinized for not paying bills, said.

Let's dispel with this fiction that Marco Rubio doesn't know what he's doing. He knows exactly what he's doing.

Republican Pick-Me's are gross.

Sunday: Trump: I shit my pants!

Monday: Trump Defender: He didn't really shit pants. <= We are here.

Tuesday: Trump: I shit my pants more than anyone else, and anyone who says otherwise is a fucking idiot!

Wednesday: Facing pressure from their pants-shitting base, every Republican in Congress purposely shits their pants at a press conference

Thursday: Trump's poll numbers go up because he got them to shit their pants

Friday: I drink even more.

Sunday: Democrats apologize for not preventing the Republicans from getting diaper rash, offer to subsidize diaper rash ointment.

Next Monday: Republicans reject Democratic ointment as a deep state conspiracy, use bleach instead. Viral videos of people pouring bleach on their enflamed groins are posted to Parler.

Republicans will tell you that Trump "Says what he means" until he says something that might interfere with the money they're fleecing from millions of Americans

After that it's always "That's not what he meant..."

Same as the Christian apologists that will make something up out of whole cloth when what the Bible actually says undermines what they're saying about the group they hate this week.

Cowards and liars, the lot of them.

If you can’t believe what he says, then what do you support him based on?

“He doesn’t talk like a traditional politician,” Rubio said Sunday

That's right, he talks like a fucking moron, because he is a fucking moron.

If it talks like a traitorous piece of shit, and sells classified documents like a traitorous piece of shit, it’s probably a traitorous piece of shit.

It is actually really hard to meet the definition of treason as defined in the constitution but mango boy did it.

For no other reason than to test what should be happening to this traitorous fucking rat, I wish we could sort of “copy” Trumps situation into a normal person. A normal person with all his legal/financial problems, accusations, the evidence against him, etc. I just want to know what would happen if the law wasn’t a two faced bitch. Because I can almost guarantee that, without the cult of personality or the political backing, republicans would be calling for this normal person to be swinging in the gallows.

Great link. Beau is a wonderful gentleman.

Is it just me or do his ears look massive in that picture?
