Marco Rubio refuses to say Trump was wrong to demand Pence overturn ...
On Monday, Sen. Marco Rubio(R-FL), who has made controversial comments about Covid-19 rules in the past, said that he wouldn't attend President Joe Biden's State of the Union address before Congress on Tuesday because the 2-minute Covid test takes too long.
"I don't have time to go take a Covid test today. I only take a test if I'm sick," Rubio said, according to a tweet from HuffPost reporter Igor Bobic.
Once people saw this on social media, they quickly called out Rubio for his sentiments.
"We need a Dr. Suess book about being able to take a test near or far. In the bar or in the car," one wrote.
"Our son took a Covid test last night to return to work in person today. He wasn't sick either. It's what you do. (It was negative)," another added.
A third wrote: "Rubio gets paid $174,000.00 annually by taxpayers, and he won't attend. The test takes a few minutes, and [the] results are in 20 minutes. Such devotion to America by a fine patriot. Ha ha ha!"
According to The Hill, Rubio's office confirmed his plans.
