Something strange happened Friday while Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) was on Twitter: He got partially through a tweet, posted it, and then stopped in mid-sentence, as if he’d either lost his train of thought or suddenly gotten called away at the last moment.
Here’s the tweet, which Rubio later deleted:
There are lots of ways the senator could have completed his tweet, and it’s a safe bet he was going to be critical of the media and Democrats in Congress because that’s the Republican way.
Others on social media were only too happy to lend a hand and fill in the blanks of the incomplete Rubio posting:

…obsessing about Doctor Seuss?
…willing to forget that our country was attacked by insurrectionists bent on keeping a defeated president in power?
…focused more on how dark money is flooding American politics?

Prefer flat-out trolling? Got that covered, too:
To be fair, this is the most complete thought that the Senator from Florida has had in ages.

At least “little Marco” is good for something: Comic relief.
