Rubio tweeted footage of what appeared to be a missile test, that was originally aired on the state-run China Central Television network, and encouraged his 4.2 million followers to â€œthink hard about what you just sawâ€¦then decide who you want just one heartbeat away from the Presidency.â€
Others accused Rubio of misogyny and sexism and reminded him of his claim in 2016, when he was running for president, that his GOP rival Trump could not be trusted with the nuclear codes.
Well thatâ€™s rich considering a nuclear football carrier is in isolation due to GOP hubris and carelessness https://t.co/l8dxBovN8L

Well, Iâ€™d say no one from the administration that gave the â€˜rona to the guy who carries around the nuclear football. ☢️ 🏈 🦠 https://t.co/HVs9nuOFZU

Thank you for reminding us that a President needs a cool and calm demeanor when making life-and-death decisions.

The classic read unto this as you wish message – it’s easy to interpret this as being against your own party’s candidate 😂

Answer: Certainly not a rude and vacuous man who agrees to rules and then continually violated them, demonstrating contempt for women while channeling his boss, as well as evading answers to questions that should be easy to answer. https://t.co/AMBp3mzCfq

We’re missing the main point: a Republican Senator implied a woman is too emotional to be Vice President of the United States. In 2020. Let that sink in.
I’m calling it – @GOP is not salvageable. Period. Pence lowered the coffin, Rubio set it ablaze, Trump nuked it.

What is your point exactly with this? Is this some way to say a man is better than a woman?
