Marco Rubio got heaped with ridicule for his robotic repetition during the last Republican debate of the same line, that president Obama knows exactly what he is doing when he sets about destroying America. When asked about it later, he doubled down, saying that he said it because he truly believed it and that he would continue saying it. What he did not address was that the criticism was about the almost verbatim robotic repetition, not that he was simply making the same point again.
But it turns out that this thing he says he strongly believes in is the opposite of what he believed before.
Other comedians have piled on, such as Seth Myers., who also wondered about Ben Carson’s cluelessness.
Larry Wilmore also got in some digs at Rubio and Carson.
