Marco Rubio says GOP can’t nominate white supremacist apologist

by Stephen Dinan  |  published on February 29, 2016

Race injected itself deep into the Republican presidential nomination Sunday after Donald Trump refused to condemn the Ku Klux Klan and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, one of his chief competitors, said that makes him unqualified to lead the GOP into the election.

Speaking in Loudoun County at a rally interrupted by technical difficulties and protesters, Mr. Rubio said Mr. Trump’s refusal to distance himself from some of his more extreme supporters is dangerous for a party trying to reach out to voters it lost in 2008 and 2012.

“We cannot be a party that nominates somebody who refuses to condemn white supremacists and the Ku Klux Klan,” Mr. Rubio said.

Mr. Trump, speaking on CNN’s “State of the Union,” said he did not know David Duke, the former KKK leader and white supremacist who has endorsed him, and declined to unilaterally condemn groups without knowing more about them.

Asked specifically about the KKK, he again declined.

    Rubio, the epitome of the worthless establishment weenie, the dumb schlub who tried to push through his terrible amnesty bill and then ran away and hid when it failed, is hardly one to point fingers.

    Rubio and Cruz need to put their Big Boy underpants on and admit that they have Nothing on Donald Trump. They have made stuff up,, That didn’t work.. and It is Not TRUMPS Fault that Even Less Than Respectable People Support Him… He has the Common Sense that Osama left at the border Years ago when he crossed!!!

    Just to know, he is not refusing and not conmdeming a white Supremacist, and Ku Klux Klan leader, is enough not for me not to give him my vote!!!!!!

    I am not a white supremist. But I am tired of being told I must now bow before the PC and allow them to claim that they are superior.
    They have their place in the sun. But in no way are they superior. Just different.
    Now is the time for them to get over having a black president and realize that he has done more damage to the blacks than he has any other group.
    Just like so many others who are played by the left, they are SUCKERS.

    Both Rubio and Cruz are dead turds, circling the toilet bowl of professional politics. Trump and the American people have their hands on the flush handle.

    Rubio, go home and grow up. Try again in about 20 years. if you can’t be bothered to vote, particularly in December when the budget vote was taken, who needs you. At 44 you have the worst voting record in the Senate. Hang it up. So the Koch brothers would give you lots of money? Just what we need, another prostitute in the white house.
