‘Clown’ Marco Rubio gets roasted after he doubles down on encouraging harassment of local restaurant

Published

on

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) on Tuesday found himself getting slammed even by his fellow conservatives after he attacked a local restaurant — and even went so far as to post its phone number and encourage people to call.

Rubio began his Tuesday by calling out Nusret Gokce — the chef who goes by the name of “Salt Bae” — after he hosted Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro at one of his restaurants.

“This guy… who admires dictator Nicolas Maduro so much actually owns a steakhouse in, of all places, Miami,” Rubio said, before he proceeded to post the restaurant’s address and phone number while encouraging people to call.

Conservative publication The Weekly Standard proceeded to call out Rubio for using his platform to “harass” Gokce’s restaurant — and Rubio responded by doubling down.

“Sad you don’t see the big difference between shaming someone because you disagree on a political issue and shaming a celebrity chef, who didn’t just host Maduro, he promoted videos of the lavish feast he provided for a criminal that is systematically starving the people of Venezuela,” Rubio wrote.

This prompted many of Rubio’s followers — including many conservatives — to hammer him for continuing to be a “clown.”
