Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) on Tuesday morning completely ignored the fact that President Trump and several of his cabinet members attended Ivy League schools when he attempted to mock members of President-elect Joe Biden’s incoming administration.

Rubio appeared to have taken a cue from President Trump, who attempted to paint himself as a populist as he tried to go after Biden during their first presidential debate in late September.

During the first presidential debate, Trump regurgitated a debunked right-wing attack about Biden forgetting the name of his college as he sneered: “Did you use the word smart?”

“You graduated either the lowest or almost the lowest in your class,” Trump added, while leaning over his podium towards Biden while his Democratic rival chuckled.

Trump inherited millions from his father and attended an Ivy League school. Biden has working-class roots, and has long touted his early distinction as ranking among the poorest in Congress.
