Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) is infamous for tweeting out Bible verses that many see as the highest form of hypocrisy coming from a man who supports all of the misanthropic policies Republicans spend their time attempting to legislate.
For all his public displays of words of piety, however, Rubio’s actual actions as a GOP senator undermine any spiritual messages that he may be superficially promoting on his Twitter feed.
Indeed, the Florida senator’s most recent fundraising email indicates that he seems to have more faith in Donald Trump as his political messiah than he does in any of the Proverbs verses he regularly posts to social media.
ABC News’ Rick Klein brought attention to Rubio’s campaign donation solicitation in a Twitter post that notes how excited the oleaginous senator was to be among the first Republican politicians mentioned in the disgraced ex-president’s new blog masquerading as a social media “platform”.
inbox: Sen. Rubio is raising money off of being one of the first pols mentioned on the new Trump "platform."
"I was lucky enough to be one of his first posts!"

Social media response to the news of Rubio’s preternatural obsession with his prominence in Trump’s consciousness (if it can be called that) was brutal, to say the least, with many people focusing on the senator’s comments about the former president when he was campaigning against him during the 2016 primaries.
Marco Rubio once said that Donald Trump is an erratic individual who couldn't be trusted with the nuclear codes and then made dick jokes about him. https://t.co/b8vZtEb4Dn

Little Marco has been upgraded to Medium Marco and he couldn't be prouder.

Apart from the fact that Rubio is a bootlicker with no self-respect, do you think he paid cash for the mention?
(If Trump isn't selling name-checks, it's only because he hasn't thought of it.) https://t.co/iG5qRu6Wf9

Once upon a time, could you imagine a prominent GOPer being proud of a mention by a NY Con Man?

This has a strong "I was lucky enough to be one of the first people he cuckolded AND he let me watch!" vibe.

While Senator Rubio excels at making himself an easy target for his critics, he is still a potent force in Florida Republican politics. and it will require Democrats to mount a concerted effort to defeat him in his re-election bid.
When Florida Democrats decide upon their candidate to run against Rubio, please consider donating to that opponent’s campaign fund in order to rid Congress of the brown-nosed acolyte of a corrupt and defeated former national disaster.
We want to hear what YOU have to say. Scroll down and let us know in our comment section!
Please consider supporting the fund. Thank you!
