In a recent interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, Marco Rubio said he plans to release his delegates to Donald Trump and would be happy to speak on Trump’s behalf in the upcoming GOP convention in Cleveland.
Wow, Marco, that is a pretty stunning turnaround, especially considering that The Donald has absolutely no use for your delegates now that he has over the majority of delegates needed (1,237) to guarantee him the nomination.
I’m sure your sudden of change of heart, ridiculing Trump every chance you got during your primary run to now practically begging for a chance to speak at the convention, has nothing to do with you no longer having a job after next January.
It is no secret that Rubio is not running for re-election to the US Senate. The reason is obvious. The good people of Florida showed him what they think of him when The Donald cleaned Marco’s clock in his home state of Florida, 46% t0 27%.
I believe Senor Rubio is angling for a position in the Trump administration. It was rumored that he was on the short list for VP, which was put together by Ben Carson. Rubio claims he is not interested in the veep job, a sure sign that he didn’t get it.
“I can tell you I enjoy public service,” Rubio said. “If there’s an opportunity to serve again in a way that I feel passionate about, I’ll most certainly think I would explore it. But I don’t know where I’m going to be in two years. I don’t know what my life will look like then.”
Translation: “Donald, I love you, man! You have humongous hands! I need a job, dammit! Hep me, brother!”
