Marco Rubio is a U.S. senator. And he just can’t stand it anymore.
“I don’t know that ‘hate’ is the right word,” Rubio said in an interview. “I’m frustrated.”
This year, as Rubio runs for president, he has cast the Senate — the very place that cemented him as a national politician — as a place he’s given up on, after less than one term. It’s too slow. Too rule-bound. So Rubio, 44, has decided not to run for his seat again. It’s the White House or bust.
“That’s why I’m missing votes. Because I am leaving the Senate. I am not running for reelection,” Rubio said in the last Republican debate, after Donald Trump had mocked him for his unusual number of absences during Senate votes.
Well I think we all know that Rubio is not winning the presidential election so it looks like he is done in politics for awhile.
And once again it seems that at least part of the reason is Donald Trump mocking him.
Just to sum up, Trump was also partially responsible for Scott Walker and Rick Perry dropping out, and is currently destroying the Jeb Bush campaign.
Which means that for all intents and purposes Donald Trump is now officially the worst thing to happen to the Republican party since Sarah Palin.
