Marco Rubio drops ‘weak leader’ tag on Joe Biden

The Senator took to Fox News Tuesday night.

During an appearance on Fox News Tuesday, U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio again cast aspersions on the mental state and the fundamental competence of President Joe Biden.

The second-term Republican U.S. Senator told Sean Hannity that treatment of Biden “reveals the hypocrisy,” given that Republicans like former Texas Gov. Rick Perry and he were “torn apart and mocked” for debate stage gaffes and memory lapses.

The Miami Republican went on to wonder how a “foreign leader” might regard the President.

“They’re going to make their own assessments of what they think they can get away with, are they dealing with a weak leader, are they dealing with someone who doesn’t really have control of the situation.”

“If you’re just an instrument and a puppet for the radical out-of-control lunacy of the far left end of his party, and they’re just using him to achieve these things they’ve been trying to do forever,” Rubio said.

Rubio suggested that, regarding Biden’s meeting with Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, that “there’s no way they leave that meeting thinking that they’re dealing with a strong leader.”

The Senator has pushed this idea that Biden doesn’t have what it takes to do the job of President, including during an appearance last month on Hannity’s program.

Asked to comment on how “weak and frail” and “struggling cognitively” that Biden seemed, the Senator did punt.

“I don’t know,” Rubio said. “I don’t see him every day so I can’t judge where he is and what’s going on. I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt.”

Rubio had no issue trafficking claims that Biden was mentally slipping during the presidential campaign.

In June, the Senator (again on Fox News) suggested that the then pre-nomination Biden may have “severe memory loss.”

Rubio wondered in August, regarding Biden, “is he strong enough” to deal with “elements in the party” working to “push him farther left than he’s ever been before?”

Rubio expressed “very serious doubts about strength in the White House.”

    After Jim DeFede called Rubio on his Nostradamus-like predictions of what a Trump presidency would do to America (most of which came true) we finally have a normal president again and it is stunning but not surprising to hear a guy who is more concerned about Cuba or Venezuela spout off about Biden. Weak was letting the Turks slaughter the Kurds, ignoring the Kashoggi murder for an arms deal, denying Russian interference in an election, talking about low flush toilets instead of dealing with covid. Marco, you could be a giant in the senate, stop being a dwarf.

    Oh please spare me little Marco. If little Marco said it on FoxNews he was lying. If little Marco told Hannity it is proof hims lying. Little Marco , folks working on the “cancel culture”to vote you out in 2022. Vote Democrat up and down ballot for the elections in 2022

    Marco is the perfect example of a do nothing weak Senator whose biggest accomplishment is running his mouth. He never has anything important to say but he likes to hear himself talk! He has become increasingly irrelevant. He is the perfect example of the Florida voter who apparently loves nitwit politicians (Scott, DeSatan, Goetz, the DUI case) who collect their salary but have nothing to show for it!

      You mean like Biden for more than 47 years drawing a govt paycheck yet having done nothing?

        No, I’m talking about Marco. Take your meds and try to stay on subject here. Name one thing that Marco has done to earn his salary? Bet you can’t!
