‘Miserable’ Marco Rubio Bashed After Defending Trump’s Racist ‘China Virus’ Chants

Donald Trump has been insisting that the coronavirus should be referred to as the “China virus” because it came from China. Those kinds of remarks have lead to Chinese-Americans being harassed because of how they look.

Yet, there’s people in Congress like Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) who believe that it’s not a big deal if Trump turns this pandemic into a racism show.

Rubio on Friday dismissed complaints about the label and suggested that America right now has more important things to worry about than whether the president’s words encourage racism against our fellow citizens.

“Virtually every American was either laid off or has family members & friends who have,” he wrote on Twitter. “I know AN ENTIRE IMMEDIATE FAMILY (husband, wife, two adult children & their 2 spouses) all laid off in last 72 hours. But some people want to argue over what name we should use for the virus.”

It didn’t take long for Twitter users to bash Rubio for supporting Trump’s racism. Here are some of the best responses:
