Marco Rubio Blows Off Biden’s SOTU With A Really Lame Excuse

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) said that he would not be attending President Biden’s State Of The Union because he doesn’t have time to take a COVID test.

Rubio told reporters:

Unlike working people, Marco Rubio does not have to go to the local drug store or clinic to take a COVID test. As a US Senator, he has some of the best medical care in the country at his disposal.

Rubio could get a COVID test in a few minutes. It would take him no time to be tested and get the results back, so Sen. Rubio’s excuse that he is too busy to attend the State Of The Union because of the COVID testing requirement is nonsense.

Marco Rubio is facing what could be quite the reelection fight against Rep. Val Demings (D), and it appears that he is trying to earn some points with Florida Republican voters by not attending the SOTU.

COVID tests aren’t tyranny or even an inconvenience, but Rubio’s refusal to get one is an example of how Republicans turned a public health crisis into a partisan political talking point.

No one is going to say that the State Of The Union wasn’t the same without Marco Rubio, but it is disrespectful to the presidency and to the traditions of the country for Rubio to come up with such a lame excuse.

Florida deserves a senator who shows up for the SOTU.
