The giggling couch tumors™ were giddy on Friday interviewing the junior Senator from Florida, Marco Rubio. Tucker Carlson was especially self-righteous with his misguided assertions, as he filled in for the guy who isn't Steve Doocy. Meanwhile, Elisabeth was swooning over "dreamy" Marco. He really impresses these bungling, talking heads.
They found a poll that was akin to an exercise of word association regarding Hillary Clinton. I wonder why there wasn't a discussion of Rubio's dismal standings in the polls? They, in typical clever fashion, discerned from the size of the words in the graphic used to describe Mrs. Clinton, that she is 'an experienced liar.'
The fact that there has been no criminal wrongdoing found with regards to the emails she sent and received was immaterial. Rubio's latest assessment, which is a new twist to me, is that she managed to remove the classification status from the emails, ex post facto. She has been tried and convicted in the court of Fox 'News' reality. There is not one smidgen of a doubt in anyone's mind, except for most of her supporters, who know this is a canard.
Rubio is one of the extremists who are of the opinion that abortion should be outlawed in all cases, even when the life of the mother is at stake, because he thinks there's always another option. Apparently he is an amateur gynecologist who misunderstands what an Ectopic pregnancy is and how abortion is the only way to save the mother, because the fetus will 100% guaranteed, not survive, ever.
A ruptured ectopic pregnancy is life-threatening, needing emergency surgery. A pregnancy is ectopic when it occurs outside the womb (uterus) womb. Ectopic means 'misplaced'.
This 1% of all pregnancies, in other words, 1% of the 6.6 million pregnancies that occur in the U.S. every year (intended and unintended) would be a death sentence over 60,000 women if Rubio has his way. But Hillary is way over the top because she called their policies on women similar to those held by the Taliban and ISIS. This upsets them because she is right.
Rubio is also upset at the call for stricter gun regulations, at a time like this! So what if two twenty-something people were shot live on air, the guy could get a gun even with a background check. The problem is apparently unsolvable, hell, these people don't even see that a problem exists. The irony that the system needs to be overhauled escapes all these murder-enablers, as they ignore statistics. From the Violence Prevention Center:
That President Obama guy and Secretary of State Clinton are simply politicizing facts for their own gain and in the interest of lowering homicides in this country. They are just so selfish. Marco Rubio wants to keep the NRA deciding what's best for the Wild Wild West, as the musket and bayonet-wielding Founding Fathers intended.
As far as the recent tumult on Wall Street, Hong Kong, Tokyo and Shanghai this week, we should continue to let big corporations decide what's best for China. Rubio wants more alliances (code for TPP) to keep China under corporate control, as God intended. No mention of the elephant in the room, Donald Trump, as this was Rubio's time to show us what he's made of: a malleable putty shaped by billionaires and the fundamentalist pro-birthers.
You can expect more choreographed buffoonery from GOP and Fox pundits while they are in the throes of full Clinton Derangement Syndrome. The flare-ups are only going to be more acute as time passes. The only solace offered for this atrocious 'news' coverage is all Trump, all the time. *sigh
