Marco Rubio Thinks It's 'Pathetic' That Obama Apologized To Art History Majors

An art history professor at the University of Texas defended the discipline after Obama said last month that “folks can make a lot more potentially with skilled manufacturing or the trades than they might with an art history degree.”

Obama quickly qualified the comment by telling the crowd in Wisconsin that "there’s nothing wrong with history. I love art history."

The President wrote a personal letter to the professor this week apologizing for his "off-the-cuff remarks" — a mea culpa that Rubio thinks is "pathetic."

The Florida senator made his displeasure known in a tweet on Wednesday.
