MARCO RUBIO MELTS DOWN AS HIS ELECTION LIES GET DEBUNKED ON MEET THE PRESS

MARCO RUBIO MELTS DOWN AS HIS ELECTION LIES GET DEBUNKED ON MEET THE PRESS

"SNIP..........

Welker asked Rubio if he would accept the election results no matter what happens.

Rubio said, “No matter what happens. No, if it’s an unfair election, I think it’s gonna
be contested by one side or the other. No matter who wins.”

Sen. Rubio then said, “I think you’re asking the wrong person. The Democrats are the ones that have opposed every Republican victory since 2000, every single one. It’s Hillary Clinton who refused to concede.”

Welker corrected him, “Hillary Clinton conceded. Senator, will you accept the election?”

.........SNIP"

Trump likes. Rubio can't hide when he gets embarrassed. He has shame.

An asshole liar who feels shame - at times. Trump will always find him useless as anything but the butt of what passes for his jokes.

4. In 2000, in the Supreme Court case -- where the plaintiff is always listed first -- it was "Bush v Gore" . . .

10. A bit more complicated than that. At various points, both sides initiated litigation.

Bush's litigation was aimed at stopping recounts and forcing the certification of the results while Gore's litigation was aimed at forcing recounts and stopping the certification.

What's up with that?

And why was she such a pussycat when she interviewed Chump on her first show last year?

Goes to show that the far ends of Right and Left (CASTRO) are equally the worst, out to line their Swiss bank accounts (or are those passe, now offshore places in mode?) .

They just spout BS without any care. Yeah, who can forget John Kerry leading a raid of the capitol? Right? What the fuck is talking about. Even Gore after the court decided against him conceded.
