Stephen Colbert Mocks Marco Rubio For Refusing To Say If He's Ever Smoked Pot

Categories: Politicks

Americans may hold politicians to sometimes ridiculously high personal moral standards, but we are pretty lax about youthful drug use. Hell, Obama and Bush II have done coke, but Marco Rubio has always refused to say whether he's ever smoked pot.

"Here's the problem with that question in American politics, if you say you did, suddenly there are all these people saying 'Well, it's not a big deal, look at all these successful people who did it,'" Rubio said in a recent ABC News interview, "On the other side of it, if you tell people that you didn't, they won't believe you."

Colbert of course couldn't help but mock the answer, both by making fun of the idea of Rubio as some sort of teen idol and by pointing out how politically calculated it is.

We're not sure why Rubio is really so reluctant to answer. He's already gone on record as the only Senator in U.S. history to admit he's attended a South Beach foam party.

Oh Please, the man's from Florida, he's likely smoked tree, snorted blow, swallowed mollies and worse. If he doesn't want to admit it? S'cool, but it is also FUNNY as hell.

Not sure if he ever smoked pot but it seems that he is under the influence of a major narcotic (chemical). We in Florida are constantly embarassed by this clown. As a democrat we would love to see him run for president next election. jimk

Yay another anti-Republican story. The bias of this publication is absolutely astonishing. Absolute silence on Joe Garcia's recent ear wax and communism faux pas

When your comments on climate change are as dumb as the Vatican's take on evolution...you loose the young vote.

The non denial denial is worse than admission. Rip the band aid off and he may benefit in the youth vote. .. not that they'll vote for him anyway.

Why not just track down and survey anyone on the 1988-89 South Miami High football team ... or Mr. Strickland's drama classes? Better yet, ask Carlos Ponce.
