Rubio Humorously Sets the Record Straight After Sneering NYT Journo Said It Was "Strange" to See Him at Trump Rally

President Donald Trump officially launched his 2020 reelection campaign last night at a rally in Orlando, Florida. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) was at the rally and posted several pictures on social media of the crowd as well as videos of VP Mike Pence and Trump speaking.


This did not sit will with New York Times journalist Michael Barbaro, who took to the Twitter machine to sneer at the Senator’s attendance. Here’s what he tweeted:

Barbaro, you may recall, was the journalist who helped “expose” Rubio’s wife’s traffic tickets in 2015 and the Senator’s “luxury speedboat” that was actually a fishing boat, and pondered Rubio’s “fashionable” black boots with a higher heel in 2016.

Rubio noticed Barbaro’s tweet and clapped back at him in a series of responses:


As Fox News correctly notes, Rubio and Trump were constantly at odds and sniping at each other as competitors for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination. But now that Trump is president, both have settled into a mostly collegial working relationship.
