After Rubio said there was no threat to gay marriage in America (presumably as there was no threat to Roe v. Wade until there was), and that he knows plenty of gay people more worried about gas prices, so he'll be voting "no", calling it "a waste of our time on a non-issue." Reading that, comedian Blaire Erskine decided to put out one of her spokesperson videos on Twitter.

Republican Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida told Insider on Wednesday that he would not vote to codify same-sex marriage at the federal level, calling it a "non-issue."

"I don't know why we're doing that bill, there's no threat to its status in America," he told Punchbowl News reporter Christian Hall when asked about the Respect for Marriage Act. "But I know plenty of gay people in Florida that are pissed off about gas prices."

The bipartisan bill, which passed the House on Tuesday with 47 Republicans joining every Democrat in favor, would write protections for both same-sex and interracial marriage into law.
Insider then asked Rubio why he wouldn't say clearly which way he'd vote.

"I'm not voting for that bill, what do you mean I won't say how I'll vote?" he said, calling the bill a "waste of our time on a non-issue."
