Marco Rubio Hangs GOP Hopes on Trump's Ability to Learn on the Job (Audio)

Yes, we know Hillary Clinton is vile, corrupt, and absolutely should not be allowed anywhere near the Oval Office, under any circumstances.

She has managed to wriggle out of many nooses that would have already trapped any other politico, not named Clinton.

That being said, “At least he’s not Hillary” isn’t really a confidence-builder, as far as choosing who should be the next president.

Senator Marco Rubio, speaking with WGN radio today, is embracing the “At least he isn’t Hillary” mantra. He went on to suggest that Trump could learn on the job.

Said Rubio:

“And that’s my sense of it, as he settles into this role as the nominee and ultimately the president, access to these issues is going to begin to, in some ways, kind of shape some of the policy positions given reality versus perhaps what you might read about on a blog somewhere.”

“I view the Senate as a place that can always act as a check and balance on whoever the next president is,” Rubio said on WGN radio on Wednesday. “I also think there’s something to be said for, once you’re actually in that position, once you’re actually working at this thing, and you’re in there, and you start to have access to information that perhaps you didn’t have before, especially for someone that’s never been in politics, I think it starts to impact your views a little bit.”

“And that’s my sense of it, as he settles into this role as the nominee and ultimately the president, access to these issues is going to begin to, in some ways, kind of shape some of the policy positions given reality versus perhaps what you might read about on a blog somewhere. So I think that’s gonna be a real factor,” Rubio said.

Rubio, when pressed, refused to say that he was supporting Trump because he thought he would be a competent or effective president. He, like many other captives to party loyalty, danced around the suggestion, choosing instead, to point out just how bad a Hillary Clinton presidency would be.

If you’re like me, you’ll be listening to hear coded language – a secret S.O.S.

Somebody go check on Senator Rubio. I think he’s having a bad day.
