Jennifer Rubin has done it again! Beclowned herself, we mean. This time over Marco Rubio:
Either Rubio is being disingenuous or he actually means what he says. I suspect it is the former and this is simply one more excuse for not confronting Trump’s illegal and unconstitutional actions or for not defending U.S. democracy. Not my job! https://t.co/oGVSI0vxnT

Pro-tip: If you’re gonna write a whiny screed about how “disingenuous” Marco Rubio is, maybe make sure you don’t kick it off with something that’s not true:
Here’s the problem:
John Dickerson didn't interview Marco Rubio yesterday, meaning you wrote a column about something you didn't even watch. https://t.co/zQRl14CBTH

Or, if she did watch it, she wasn’t paying attention. Which we’d also believe.

"Here's the bottom line. I'm not going to spend my time here in the U.S. Senate waking up every morning and responding to some tweet every day. I know that's what you guys are paid to do, and that's fine" — Sen. @MarcoRubio tells @AnthonyMasonCBS pic.twitter.com/pbXPlOIyvp

Now, obviously, screwing up someone’s name is not the worst thing Jennifer Rubin has done. But she’s not making it any easier for us to take her seriously.
Not for the first time, I'm betting.

Par for the course for Rubin.

Rubin has a meltdown over an interview she clearly didn't even watch, then has the temerity to attack Marco Rubio as "disingenuous" because he said it wasn't his job as a U.S. senator to spend all day analyzing Trump's every tweet. Even for her, that is pretty special.
