Republican Senator Marco Rubio made himself a tough act to follow during Trump’s campaign stop in Florida.
The heavily attended campaign rally kicked off with Rubio declaring that they love what happened in Texas with Trump supporters surrounding the Biden/Harris campaign bus but noted that they do that kind of thing in Florida all the time. This includes massive pro-Trump boat parades.
Rubio proceeded by saying he noticed how diverse the crowd was and began calling out the different countries people had come from. He ended this roll call with the largest applause of all; asking how many “Americanos” were in the place to uproarious applause and chants of “USA!”
“And that’s the point,” said Rubio.
“I don’t know what they’re gonna write about tomorrow, I don’t know what news is gonna say tonight, but I know the truth,” said Rubio. “This president has united tonight, in one place, at one time, people united by one thing: they are proud Americans!”
Rubio turned his crosshairs to Democrat party candidate, Joe Biden.
“I didn’t want to be mean to Joe Biden,” said Rubio. “And so I was going to be very careful about what I said here tonight, but then I realized it’s 10:30. He’s already asleep! I can say whatever I want!”
The crowd began chanting “sleepy Joe” but Rubio jokingly shushed them saying “don’t wake him up.”

Rubio finally addressed the donkey in the room and made it clear that the Democrat party is the enemy of the very people attending these rallies, many of whom were there because they fled socialism or communism.
Rubio told the crowd that while it’s true that not all Democrats are socialist, all socialists are Democrat.
One of the things that unites so many of the people here, where you have come to this country because you lost your native land, and you lost it to something called socialism.
People get on rafts to get away socialism. People risk being eaten by sharks to get away from socialism. People leave behind their homes, their families, their loved ones, their entire lives, to get away from socialism. We are not going to bring to this country the things that people flee!
Now, I know what they’re gonna say. “Not all Democrats are socialists.” And it’s true: not all Democrats are socialists, but all socialists are Democrats!
Rubio is correct.
Socialism has infected the Democrat party and the party doesn’t seem to want to cure itself of it. In fact, at this point, it seems that the infection has become the body itself.
Many people attending the rally in Florida know good and well what the Democrat party is attempting to bring to the United States is something evil and unworkable.
Maximo Alvarez voiced this clearly during his RNC speech in August.
“When I hear the promises, I hear echoes of the former life I never wanted to hear again. I see shadows I thought I had outrun,” he warned.
“I may be Cuban-born, but I’m 100 percent American! This is the greatest country in the world. And I said this before: If I gave away everything that I have today, it would not equal 1% of what I was given when I came to this great country of ours. The gift of freedom.”
