How tall is Marco Rubio? (Rethug lies extend to this)

He's officially 5'10" but those who've seen him say 5'6" to 5'7" - not a judgement about height but about his lies.

11. ps

your comment was hilarious but I couldn't find Rubio walking on water in google images -- Palin popped up so you've got to wonder how their algorithms work

6. Ah, yes, lying about running times, lying about height. These people

wouldn't recognize the truth if they tripped over it.

17. They call me



I found a nickname for him, "Peque" short for pequeno or small in Spanish


found this:

Modern Love (Cuban Style)

I swear to Christ, my sister and her husband (who is from Cuba) are the modern day Lucy and Ricky. Today, he stalled his car trying to get out of a parking lot and she yelled in a high-pitched voice “PEH-KAYYYY” (we call him Peque, short for Pequeño—Spanish for little one—because he is 5’3”) “Ay por Dio watch what you’re doing!!!” and he responded in his broken english “Ayyyyy baaaaabe. If you wanted one perfect husband you no should look in COOBA”.

18. How tall is Jon Stewart?

I noticed when Rubio was on The Daily Show that they seemed to be about the same height when they shook hands.

19. Jon is 5'6"

based on your observations and the OP pic there is no way Rubio is 5'10"

i wonder why they feel the need to lie about these things.

20. I wonder if there has been a President ever who is 5'6" tall

and guess that the optics would have been awful with Romney standing next to Rubio.

23. Not so sure

There's a very brief time when they are at the same level. But during that period, Rubio looks noticeably taller to me.

But camera angles can change things a lot.

22. Unless Romney is 6' 6", he is NOT 5' 10"

As a man who truly is 5'10" ( I used to be 5' 11" until several knee surgeries and spinal fusion) every guy out there 5' 8" and below claims to be 5' 10". It is funny.

25. Maybe it's a good thing that men can't wear heels

except maybe those shoe lifts. If they could we'd have a lot more people with back problems in the USA!
