Marco Rubio Wants You To Know He is Not Hashtag Jesus

Categories: Politicks

Marco Rubio continues to be everywhere this week, including peering out at you from the news stand on the cover of Time magazine. The last remaining major news weekly splashed "The Republican Savior" in big, bold yellow letters across the Florida Senator, but Rubio has taking issue with the characterization. 




That is exactly what a Republican savior would Tweet, isn't it?

The actual article mostly deals with speculation on Rubio's political future, and focuses on his current issue of immigrations reform. Which drops the interesting bit that Rubio was pushed into action on the matter by a voicemail from his mother: 
"Tony, some loving advice from the person who cares for you most in the world," she said in Spanish. "Don't mess with the immigrants, my son. Please, don't mess with them." She reminded him that undocumented Americans--los pobrecitos, she called them, the poor things--work hard and get treated horribly. "They're human beings just like us, and they came for the same reasons we came. To work. To improve their lives. So please, don't mess with them."
