Marco Rubio Tried to Slam Democratic Debate With 'Reefer for Everyone!' Declaration and It Totally Backfired
Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) took a break from tweeting bible verses to chastise the performances of Democratic presidential candidates in Tuesday night's debate.
It didn't go as well as he'd hoped.
Rubio warned his followers that Democrats would push for the government to control the internet, energy, schools and health care, but it was his last sentence that stood out.
Take a look at this tweet below.
To recap tonight’s Democratic debate. If they are elected you will get govt controlled internet, energy, schools… https://t.co/GHZ6Ep3kgo— Marco Rubio (@Marco Rubio)1582684762.0
Rubio ended with:
"And as a bonus, reefer for everyone!"
While at least two candidates—Senators Bernie Sanders (D-VT) and Amy Klobuchar (D-MN)—discussed the need to legalize marijuana at last night's debate (other candidates support its legalization as well), their calls to legalize were rooted more in ending the incarceration of hundreds of thousands of nonviolent offenders—not getting high.
Speaking of high...

Okay, I admit I'm not a pot smoker but does anyone really use the word "reefer?" https://t.co/voNFJ8GmHe— AMERICAN MOM (@AMERICAN MOM)1582718353.0

Not to mention, the entities on which Democrats would supposedly sic the government are already largely controlled by the government—or are failing without government intervention.
Marco Rubio is so stupid that he doesn’t realize that the government already regulates all of these things. The on… https://t.co/unXH7eLBbp— Ms. Krassenstein (@Ms. Krassenstein)1582713252.0

Rubio's awkward tweet comes just days after another tweet of his that made waves.
The Senator likely broke Florida law on Monday when he tweeted a video of himself railing against Democratic Socialism...while driving.
Democratic Socialism sounds benign. It’s not. It’s built on Marxism. https://t.co/VoFZlkSIgT— Marco Rubio (@Marco Rubio)1582561304.0
At least we know his bizarre social media skills aren't due to reefer madness.
