Marco Rubio’s disastrous debate performance leads Twitter to conclude he’s a ‘glitchy’ robot

Published

Marcos Rubio’s ascent as the establishment Republican candidate for president may have crashed and burned Saturday night after his over-reliance on a single talking point regarding President Obama led viewers and commentators to conclude he came off like glitchy preprogrammed robot.

Rubio’s insistance on repeating “Let’s dispel with this fiction that Barack Obama doesn’t know what he’s doing. He knows exactly what he’s doing. He is trying to change this country,” multiple times during the evening led to New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie openly mocking him during the debate.

This is not the first time it has been noted that Rubio’s responses to questions seems preprogrammed.

In 2011, Jonathan Chait wrote a column entitled “Is Marco Rubio Secretly A Robot?

“Do you get the feeling that ‘Marco Rubio’ is not an actual human being at all but some kind of computer program designed by the Republican Party? Imagine they had the technical know-how to create a candidate like this. What would they come up with? They’d come up with Marco Rubio, a cinematically handsome Latino from Florida who hews to the Tea Party line while spitting out patriotic cliches that sound as if they were programmed like a computer,” he wrote before stating, “I’m not saying I’m sure Rubio is a robot. I’m just saying that I want to watch him walk through a metal detector.”

As for Saturday night’s performance, Twitter users joined ranks in attacking Rubio as being a tightly-scripted talking points machine.

Dick Cheney’s cardiologist explains why Donald Trump’s hospital visit is ‘worrisome’ — and what it could be

Published

on

Dr. Jonathan Reiner, who is still former Vice President Dick Cheney’s cardiologist, said that he spoke with someone assigned to talk about the president's health in the White House and still has questions about President Donald Trump's trip to Walter Reed over the weekend.

"This had been something they had been thinking about for a while, the president had some downtime, so he went over to Walter Reed to get some of this done," said Dr. Reiner, citing the White House source. "There was no sophisticated testing done. It's a little bit unusual. Almost everything that is usually done in a presidential physical like this, can be done in the White House at the White House medical unit. So, it doesn't really make a lot of sense why the president would travel to Walter Reed on a Saturday afternoon for this kind of testing."

Speaker Nancy Pelosi tells colleagues why the GOP’s arguments to support Trump are ‘weak’

Published

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) sent a "dear colleague" letter to members of Congress calling the Republican Party's justification for President Donald Trump's actions "weak."

"The facts are uncontested: that the President abused his power for his own personal, political benefit, at the expense of our national security interests," Pelosi wrote.

"The weak response to these hearings has been 'Let the election decide.' That dangerous position only adds to the urgency of our action, because the President is jeopardizing the integrity of the 2020 elections," she continued.

Monday morning, Trump tweeted a quote from a Democratic member of Congress who claimed on Fox News that impeachment should be disbanded because it is dividing the country.
