Seriously, who can still support this jacka@@??
and now to the debate, already in progress...
TED CRUZ: “Marco went on Univision, in Spanish, and said he would not rescind President Obama’s executive order on amnesty.”
MARCO RUBIO: “I don’t know how he knows what I said on Univision because he doesn’t speak Spanish,” Rubio said.
Cruz turns and looks at Rubio to address this false charge that he doesn't speak Spanish by ANSWERING IN Spanish...
TED CRUZ: "y vamos a disipar de una vez por todas con esta ficción que Barack Obama no sabe lo que está haciendo. Él sabe exactamente lo que está haciendo."
Now I'm guessing most of the viewers at home watching this, had no idea what Cruz had said. I even had two years of Spanish in High School, but all that means is that I was pretty sure Cruz didn't ask where the baño was.
The other reason most missed Cruz's Spanish retort is because Rubio continued talking over Cruz, like slick politicians (or a@@hole billionaire real estate moguls) are apt to do. Rubio believes it politically expedient to continuously lie by falsely accusing Cruz of lying. He's just a Trump mini-me in those regards.
EXCLUSIVE! Chattering Teeth News technicians have now translated the exchange by isolating Cruz's Spanish with an audio transmorgificator. Here is what Cruz said to Marco in Spanish:
“And let’s dispel once and for all with this fiction that Barack Obama doesn’t know what he’s doing. He knows exactly what he’s doing.”
BOOM! GAME - SET - MATCH! Rubio’s “memorized 25-second speech” stated back to him in Spanish almost caused him to short-circuit.
MARCO RUBIO: Of course, Cruz then continued debating in his native Canadian gutter-speak!
Shut up, Marco. You didn't completely embarrass yourself in this debate. I loved how you exposed Trump's ignorance with foreign policy during this exchange:
MODERATOR: "...What three questions (on Day 1) do you ask your national security experts about the world?
TRUMP: "What we wanna do, when we wanna do it, and how hard do we wanna hit. Because we are going to have to hit very, very hard to knock out ISIS."
Go read his entire response here (if you have the stomach for it), but it was just more Trump-speak of incomplete nonsensical sentences and sound bytes demonstrating to any thinking and rational person that he has no idea what the "Trump" he is rambling on about.
MODERATOR: Senator Rubio. Are those the questions you would ask?
To Rubio's credit, he did not answer by asking, "What did this moron even say?" Instead, he delivered a very intelligent, and coherent answer.
SEN. MARCO RUBIO: No. I think there are three major threats that you want to immediately get on top of. Number one is, what are we doing in the Asia Pacific region, where both North Korea and China pose threats to the national security of the United States. Number two is, what are we doing in the Middle East with the combination of the Sunni/Shia conflict driven by the Shia Arc, that Iran is now trying to establish in the Middle East and also the growing threat of ISIS.
And the third is rebuilding and reinvigorating NATO in the European theater, particularly in Central Europe and in Eastern Europe, where Vladimir Putin is now territor– the territory of multiple countries, already controls 20% of Georgia, and a significant percentage of Ukraine.
When juxtaposed after Trump's buffoonery, it was a mic-drop moment.
