Marco Rubio proves once again that Republicans are living in an alternative universe. During this Thursday's debate, Rubio made this ridiculous statement: Marco Rubio says the Republican party—89% white—is “the party of diversity”:

During the CNN/Telemundo debate on Feb. 25, Florida senator Marco Rubio proclaimed the Republican party “the party of diversity.”

With two Cuban Americans (Rubio and Ted Cruz) and one African American (Ben Carson) on the stage, “We are the party of diversity, not the Democrats,” he declared.

But as Slate’s Jamelle Bouie noted on Twitter, the numbers don’t add up. Roughly only 11% of the GOP is made up of minority voters, while 30% of independent and 40% of Democrats identify as racial minorities, according to the latest Gallup nationwide poll.

What's that saying again about reality and liberal bias?
