Marco Rubio Still Running For President, Still Real Dumb
Remember that dude, Marco Rubio, from Florida? Probably not. He announced the end of his political career in April, when he said he's already sick of being a senator, after four whole years, and will "run for president" instead, to deal with the number one threat to America, which is Cuba. Ah, but that was so many presidential announcements ago, and Rubio is boring and dumb, no one likes him -- especially not after he was the only other GOP backstabber who joined fellow Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Traitor) to murder a bipartisan bill on Iran that Republicans really wanted.
Anyway, we've sort of forgotten to pay any attention to Rubio, on account of how he is boring and dumb, like we said, and he's not going to be president, and soon, he won't even be a senator anymore, but here's a funny thing that fell out of Rubio's wordhole, on Fox News's "Outnumbered," so let's all take a few seconds to laugh at Rubio before we go back to ignoring him some more:
Rubio seemed to express support for US troops being present in Iraq, but he maintained this did not represent the controversial "nation-building" philosophy that led to a protracted American military presence in that country following the US invasion in 2003.
However, while insisting he doesn't advocate "nation-building," Rubio seemed to define his policy as exactly that.
"It’s not nation-building. We are assisting them in building their nation," Rubio said of his vision for Iraq.
What's the difference between "nation-building" and "building their nation"? Dunno! Pretty sure Rubio dunno either. His campaign staff sure dunno -- not yet, anyway:
His campaign did not immediately respond to an email from Business Insider asking them to clarify how that is any different from "nation-building."
Poor Rubio. He's not very smart, he's not very popular, and once he's done losing in the Republican primary, he's going to be not very employed either.
