Sure, I disagree with Marco Rubio on the Gang of 8 immigration bill, particularly the amnesty part.
But what’s most galling is that Rubio appears to have been played by Chuck Schumer on the Democratic side, and McCain/Graham on the Republican side, suckered into being the point man drawing fire on a plan which never will be law in the form passed by the Senate.
Substantively, Rubio was pushed into a plan he can’t defend.
Does Rubio even support the Gang of 8 bill anymore? If so, he’s been pretty quiet about it lately.
I don’t mind a politician I disagree with on an issue half as much as I mind a politician I normally agree with getting played.
This tweet by Conn Carroll is spot on:
@mckaycoppins the biggest problem is the perception he got rolled. hard.
