Marco Rubio confirmed today what we knew all along: He’s a spineless politician who only acts in his own self-interest. Rubio is supporting a man who brags about sexual assault and who Rubio himself has called a “con artist” who can’t be trusted with the nuclear codes.
Miami Herald: Rubio stands by Trump after tape
By Patricia Mazzei, 10/11/16
Florida Sen. Marco Rubio said Tuesday he’s not revoking his endorsement of Donald Trump, despite Trump’s lewd and vulgar comments in a 2005 recording about groping women without their consent.
“I ran against Donald Trump. And while I respect that voters chose him as the GOP nominee, I have never hesitated to oppose his policies I disagree with,” Rubio said in a statement. “And I have consistently rejected his offensive rhetoric and behavior. I disagree with him on many things, but I disagree with his opponent on virtually everything.
“I wish we had better choices for President. But I do not want Hillary Clinton to be our next President. And therefore my position has not changed.”
Rubio denounced the tape Friday after its publication in The Washington Post, calling Trump’s remarks “impossible to justify.”
In the now-infamous tape, Trump brags about kissing women and grabbing them by the genitals: “When you’re a star, they let you do it.”
Sunday in a debate against Hillary Clinton, Trump apologized but dismissed what he said as “locker-room talk.”
Rubio’s Democratic opponent, Jupiter Rep. Patrick Murphy, spent the weekend demanding that Rubio disavow Trump.
