Bernie Sanders Calls Out Marco Rubio For Embarrassing The Nation


Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) said what many are already thinking when he called out Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) for embarrassing the nation.


On The Ed Show, Sen. Bernie Sanders responded to Marco Rubio’s complete denial of climate change science by saying, “I gotta say this, Ed. I really gotta say this. Look, you and I have all kinds of differences with Republicans, but to totally reject what the scientific community is saying is really embarrassing for our nation, frankly.”

Sen. Sanders (I-VT) was reacting to Sen. Marco Rubio’s (R-FL) statement during an interview on ABC’s This Week yesterday. Rubio said, “I do not believe that human activity is causing these dramatic changes to our climate the way these scientists are portraying it. That’s what I do not — and I do not believe that the laws that they propose we pass will do anything about it. Except it will destroy our economy.”

During the same interview, Rubio also claimed that he was ready to be president, which begs the question, president of what? Sen. Sanders has it right. Rubio’s comments were an embarrassment. They were also quite possibly the most shameless pander to Republican primary voters since Mitt Romney was running for the 2012 nomination.

Republicans may have to completely disconnect from reality if they want the support of their party, but they haven’t figured out yet that non-reality politics doesn’t win elections outside of the GOP. Republicans like Marco Rubio are embarrassing themselves, because they actually believe that they have a chance to be president.

Marco Rubio tends to embarrass himself on a regular basis, so this is nothing new. What is embarrassing is that Republicans like Rubio are making the rest of the nation look bad.

Sen. Big Gulp is a joke, but the joke isn’t funny. Rubio has no chance that he will be elected president in 2016. The American people need to follow the lead of Bernie Sanders and call out these disgraceful Republicans. The grown ups are trying to govern, and it’s clear that the GOP is not ready to sit at the adult table in American politics.

  1. Marco is ready to be president of the Inquisition to punish ecclesial heretics.. ya don’t get to vote on whether science is ‘right’… ask Ptolemy.. he recanted but but it didn’t mean he was wrong…

  2. I have written to my senator… sigh, I live in rubioland. I suggested to him to study some chemistry, a science and learn what increasing concentrations of CO2 in the atmosphere will lead to. Chemistry, a science. It will lead to increases in heat trapped and increasing warming. period. I suspect he is still mostly concerned with Rubioland, where only pandering to stupid is considered a science.

  3. Did any of these geniuses really attend school, the present bunch of teabaggers represent the dumdest group of people on this continent, and some of them like Rubio, Cruz, Gohmer, and Paul sharing the same brain cell and thats just to name a few that represent the bottom of the repig class, can there be this many village idiots running around talking in a vacuum, living in a teabag bubble, because which one of these witless brain dead teaheads will be next to make the same rediculous assertion. Its all in their game plan given to them by the NRCC R. Prebis.

  4. Good god Florida! Vote this joker out you deserve much better representation than this idiot. Sadly Florida is one state where climate change will affect particularly harshly. Every slight rise of the ocean level over time will spell disaster for the great state of Florida. Literally Florida could disappear.

  5. Rubio has no chance that he will be elected president in 2016. He’s just kissing up to the right wing of his party

  6. Rubio is in it for money. That is all he is in for – he will never get the Repig nomination nor will Randal Paul or Cruz, or any of the current Bagger imbeciles running their idiotic mouths.

  7. He is so correct and it is an embarrassment to our country and the fact that this man is a senator in our government must make us look like such fools to the rest of the world. The only way to correct this is to vote out the ‘stupid’ and vote into office people that are actually educated and not corporate owned.

  8. WHAT has happened to the republican party in the last 40 years? It was once the party of the intelligent, high-brow, learned people. It seems that each possible candidate is on a race for the bottom. “I’m dumber than you are.” It is an embarassment to watch. It is like watching a train wreck. I can’t believe this is the best the party can come up with. I realize no Mensa students want to the job but comeon…. they seem to be running away in droves. And we DO look like fools. I’ve talked to a few friends from Europe that I’ve known for over 40 years and they cannot believe how far down our politicians have sunk. AND that the populace is allowing them to be elected.
