Dumb Things Senators Say
"If he was going to shake his hand, he should have asked him about those basic freedoms Mandela was associated with that are denied in Cuba."—Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL).
Because, as we all know, if POTUS just had some well planned zingers prepared for these sorts of situations that US foreign policy goals would flourish. Indeed, we probably wouldn’t need the State Department any longer.
(Granted, Rubio had to say something negative, given the ongoing state of Florida politics).
