In a last-ditch effort to prove his loyalty to President Trump in the waning weeks of the mercurial President’s term, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) on Tuesday night thrust himself onto the pile of conservatives who are clutching their pearls after Jen O’Malley Dillon, who will serve as President-elect Joe Biden’s White House deputy chief of staff, slammed Republicans using — gasp! — a swear.
In an interview with Glamour published Tuesday, O’Malley Dillon took aim at Republicans, who she sees as having brushed off Biden’s push for unity by impeding Democrats in every way possible.
“In the primary, people would mock him, like, ‘You think you can work with Republicans?’ I’m not saying they’re not a bunch of fuckers. Mitch McConnell is terrible,” O’Malley Dillon told Glamour. “But this sense that you couldn’t wish for that, you couldn’t wish for this bipartisan ideal? He rejected that.”
Conservatives swiftly blasted the Biden aide for airing her explicit description of Republicans as they conveniently ignored President Trump’s history of issuing derogatory comments toward people and groups who stand at odds with him.
In September, Trump came under fire for reportedly calling fallen soldiers “losers” and “suckers” as well as insisting that the late Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), who spent more than five years as a POW and emerged as a prominent critic of Trump before his death in 2018, is “not a war hero.”
Loyal Trump foot soldier Rubio, whose poor attempt at painting Biden as an elitist backfired last month, once again stepped in it as he posted yet another misguided tweet on Tuesday night that insinuated O’Malley Dillon’s explicit description of Republicans:
Biden talks about unity and healing, but you want to know what they really think?

It didn’t take long for Twitter users to school Rubio on the irony of his tone-deaf tweet:
Are you and Ted Cruz in some sort of contest to see who can get dragged the most on Twitter? https://t.co/oJZdnm9JrK

Marco Rubio ended his embarrassing failure of a Presidential campaign talking about the size of Donald Trump’s penis so perhaps he shouldn’t be taken seriously as an arbiter of decorum in American politics. https://t.co/k04EsLmvsn

If Republicans hadn’t spent 4 years genuflecting to a guy who boasted of grabbing a woman by the pussy, who said immigrants from Africa and Latin America came from “shit-holes”, who called Black athletes taking a knee, “sons-of-bitches”…maybe then, this would be a valid point. https://t.co/TTPoSAeBor

Let us put it to you in the words of your old fat Turd overlord: You Marco come from “one of those sh*t hole countries” and “why don’t you go back to where you come from”. Now you see why no one will listen to you seriously ever again, “Lil’ Marco.” https://t.co/enBUWS8opg

>@marcorubio , what would you call a group that does nothing about a pandemic that has killed 300,000 & refuses to stand up for Democracy? A group that is holding hearings suggesting the election is not over while Russia just attacked us? Fuckers or Republicans? https://t.co/sUhehJHtRP

Cry us a river. You supported and enabled Trump who belittled everyone, especially you. Enough of this fake victimhood and phony outrage. https://t.co/miBOzTxsV8

You and your Trump con man turned a deadly virus loose on Antenna and over 300,000 people are dead now, so far.
You and the Republicans are a bunch of fuckers. https://t.co/lWtIWr2XcM
