Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) announced Tuesday that he would refuse to support President-Elect Joe Biden’s nominees for key cabinet positions, including Secretary of State and National Security Adviser after Biden released the names of his choices on Monday.
The reason Rubio has already made up his mind regarding the highly-qualified people Biden wants in advising? According to the senator, it has to do with the fact that they attended Ivy League schools and and don’t believe in “American greatness.”
Biden’s cabinet picks went to Ivy League schools,have strong resumes,attend all the right conferences & will be polite & orderly caretakers of America’s decline
I support American greatness
And I have no interest in returning to the “normal” that left us dependent on China

What ever happened to wanting to have the best and the brightest people in government? Would Rubio prefer if Biden picked people with little or no education who had zero experience in the line of work they’re being nominated for? We’ve seen how that works during the last four years of the Trump administration, and Trump’s promise of only appointing the “best people” has proven to be a disaster.
The Florida Republican was quickly ripped apart on social media:
What did trump accomplish with China besides bankrupting American farmers, losing agriculture markets to other countries,raising prices on goods that we buy, & ignoring a deadly virus that has killed thousands & decimated the economy so that he could get a1/2 assed trade deal?

Is Rubio arguing that in order to achieve “American greatness” our public servants must avoid top colleges, have weak resumes, avoid working or meeting colleagues, and be mean? https://t.co/cjkVJPE6L0

Guy who went to the 67th-ranked law school is bothered that Biden is staffing from the top ten. 🤔

Six of President Trump’s cabinet members went to Ivy League schools.

The relevance of your utterances is zero. You’ve shown yourself for who you are. It’s you, as the bootlicker you are, who are leading America’s decline. You promote incompetence because it is all you know. You are weak and you worship a loser. https://t.co/h2NLQyKRf4

Donald Trump just spent four years turbo charging American decline with Rubio’s full support. The people who have to clean up that mess don’t really need the lecture on American greatness https://t.co/cEoZN3KllM

The best thing “Little Marco” could do right now is sit down and shut up.
