Marco Rubio Delivers Humiliating Self-Own During CNN Gun Reform Debate

OK, OK. I will give credit to Marco Rubio for this: He showed up in front of a hostile audience to have a debate about guns. This is not something most Senators would do, and certainly not a Senator with deep pockets lined with campaign contributions from the NRA. I’ll also give Rubio credit for this: Despite Trump coming out in favor of arming teachers yesterday, Rubio rejected that position during the town-hall debate.

That’s all the credit I am willing to give Marco Rubio, however, because he otherwise got thrashed. Here, for instance, is the father of a Florida school shooting victim telling Marco Rubio that his comments “and those of Trump have been pathetically weak” to rousing applause from the crowd.

But this? This is the self-own of all self-owns: What would you have us do, Rubio asks, “ban every semi-automatic weapon in America?”

Yes, exactly that. This is the moment that the crowd goes wild with approval, leaving that poor schmuck’s face drenched in egg.

Same, dude. Same.
