Donald Trump has been getting a severely disproportionate amount of hate and attention lately for his aggressively idiotic comments lately, and you know what? That’s unfair. Oh, not unfair because he doesn’t deserve the hate— he absolutely does. When he makes comments implying Megyn Kelly was on her period during the GOP debate and then throws his hotdog fingered hands in the air screaming “I didn’t say that— you said that! I’m not gross— you’re gross!” —Yes, this is a man who deserves our ire. What makes it unfair is that with every new batch of word vomit Trump turns out, it’s easier and easier to forget that he’s not the only one spewing offensive nonsense. Apparently, though, Marco Rubio refuses to let Trump sit smugly as the idiocy frontrunner. So today he put this gem of hateful buffoonery up on Twitter:
This idea of human life becoming or not becoming cats was born from an interview Rubio did this morning with CNN’s Chris Cuomo, a fellow Catholic, like Rubio, but one who (unlike Rubio) doesn’t refuse to join the rest of functioning society.
If you value your sanity, I urge you not to watch that video. Here’s where Rubio gets going, though:
Let me interrupt you. Science has—absolutely it has. Science has decided… Science has concluded that—absolutely it has. What else can it be? It cannot turn into an animal. It can’t turn into a donkey. The only thing that that can become is a human being.It seems like Rubio designed this as a cruel joke to drive home the fact that Jon Stewart wouldn’t be commenting on this exchange.
Cuomo then tried— oh, silly, overly optimistic man— to explain DNA maps and the basic differences between faith and science.
Rubio’s response: “It begins at conception.”
Cuomo tried again: “That’s your faith. That’s not science.”
Rubio: “Yes it is.”
And then Rubio stumbled across what he clearly thought was the greatest argument for life beginning at conception ever dreamt up:
Well, if they can’t say it will be human life, what does it become then? Could it become a cat?
This is a man who wants to be president, folks.
