Marco Rubio Rebukes Colin Powell Accusations of Republican Racism

In an interview today on the Andrea Tantaros Show, U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., rebuked suggestions by retired four-star general and former U.S. secretary of state Colin Powell that there exists "a dark vein of intolerance in some parts of the [Republican] party."

"I disagree with General Powell’s assessment of the Republican Party today,” Rubio said. “The Republican Party is the party that [has] placed two Hispanics in the U.S. Senate, and we have an African-American senator in the United States Senate.”

Powell himself served as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and secretary of state under Republican administrations, and in past years was even floated around as a possible candidate on the party's presidential ticket.

COLIN POWELL knows that Oba-Mao is NOT CONSTITUTIONALLY ELIGIBLE to be POTUS, because he is NOT a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN. He may claim to be a Republican, but he is actually a ESTABLISHMENT RINO.. Rep. in name only. Just because you believe some LIES ALL THE TIME, IS A MUSLIM, & WAS BORN IN KENYA DOESN'T MAKE YOU a racist. Oba-Mao has NEVER produced a GENUINE Birth Cert., (both were PROVEN FORGERIES) so we REALY don't know who he is. So much for the "most transparent administration ever" BS.

Of course, Marco Rubio must be right . . . anyone who espouses a 6,000 year old date for the earth has a good grasp on reality and the facts . . . . just like he did about his family's fleeing Castro . . . .

Pathetic . . . .

At least Marco came forward & set the record straight, not like Barry Sotoero who HIDES EVERY part of his past.
As for the Earth's age, he was stating the BIBLICAL ACCOUNT, which our Founding Fathers ALSO believed since ALL 50+ were DEVOUT CHRISTIANS. Can you prove how old it is? Scientists have only theories. STOP BEING A "USEFUL IDIOT".
