Marco Rubio rips Joe Biden for ‘undermining’ Benjamin Netanyahu with bad words, temper tantrums

Rubio, Marco - 4
'He's doing it to appease the radical antisemitic element of his base.'

Florida’s senior Senator argues the President has a potty mouth, and that he’s putting it to use against a man he frames as a key American ally in the pursuit of a bloc of “antisemitic” votes in the Democratic Party.

Joe Biden is using all kinds of profanity and temper tantrums and leaking it to the press to go after Benjamin Netanyahu,” said Marco Rubio on the Fox Business Network.

Rubio said that “even as the Israelis and Israel is fighting for its very existence, you have an administration that’s going out there and openly saying that they’ve gone over the top, that he hates Netanyahu, that, you know, we don’t like the way you’re conducting your operation. He’s actively in a time of war, undermining an ally, undermining a country and he’s doing it to appease the radical antisemitic element of his base that exists.”

Per the Times of Israel, the President has called the Israeli Prime Minister an “asshole,” amid other choice words amid disagreements with strategy in the ongoing war with Hamas.

Rubio claims that the Biden administration fears losing “pro-Palestinian” votes in Michigan this year, with emissaries meeting with “antisemites” because “political people” said the White House was “in trouble” amid Biden’s re-election bid.

“We have an element of our base that’s really angry at us and is not going to vote for us. And so we need to put stuff out there to show that we’re not 100% on Israel’s side,” Rubio said, attempting to articulate what he sees as Biden’s calculus.

“And so you start seeing the leaks that he hung up on Netanyahu, that he swore at him. You see this memo last week that comes out from the State Department about how we’re not going to give aid to countries that target civilians, which Israel is not targeting civilians. Unfortunately, in war, civilians are caught in the way.”

    Netanyahu is a war criminal, Rubio is a vote panderer. He has no knowledge of the politics in that region. Netanyahu is creating more problems than he thinks that he is solving.The general population is not happy., there have been protests there for over a year.

    Ah, the “man” who now grovels at the feet of the guy who called him “Little Marco.”
    Now this “man” wants to tell us that the President of the United States has no right to challenge the decisions of the leader of another democracy, the State of Israel. He calls it anti-Semitic, which is absurd because it has nothing to do with ethnicity, culture, or religion, but has everything to do with an Israeli government leader with whom Biden disagrees.
    Only a “man” like Little Marco would ask the President of the United States to blindly follow the leader of another country. He will do anything to please his master, Trump.

    Marco always has, and always will be, a suit. The epitome of the Peter Principle.

    Dear Mrs FLgOP’s, Could you please tell your husbands how they’re perceived by the public? They must not realize. They wouldn’t say the things they say, if only they knew. Their bubble needs to be burst. It’s swollen and infected. It’s been oozing pus for 6 years.

  • little marco shut up already

    Little Marco, please shut up already. It’s obvious to most of the World that Israel is engaged in genocide in Gaza. If being critical of that slaughter is “racist” then so be it. What ever happened to supporting our President? You worship an orange turd. One who publicly humiliated you, little Marco. You are pathetic Marco. You’re a disgrace to our State and our Nation!

    You have to feel bad for Al Cardenas, the legendary Cuban political fixer who mentored Rubio. Al won’t dodge a hard question, even when he knows the listener might disagree with the answer. Rubio is all over the playing field, trying to make DJT take it easy on him, not even certain which goal post is his.

    Rubio will support Trump encouraging Putin to invade the good countries of NATO, as he has proven he would love to with his invasion of Ukraine. But Rubio can’t stand up to support the genocide Israel is pouring out on innocent civilians?? We all are against Hamas, but the many being slaughtered are not Hamas and positive the thousands of children being killed and starved and traumatized are certainly not.

    There was a Senate Intelligence committee report that linked DJT and Russian interference in the 2016 elections. Rubio brags about is intelligence credentials. So, he is lying now — as he knows better.

    No real substance here to worry about since nobody in the world listens to Joe Biden or the United Nations about anything. I guess Biden wants the UN to write Netanyahu one of their worthless nasty letters asking him to stop. Yeah right. Go get ’em Netanyahu – finish the job !!!!!!
