Poor Marco Rubio. I mean no one takes the guy seriously anyway, and now even less so now that he has been called out mid “Joe Biden weak balloon” rant on “This Week with George Stephanopoulos”, and informed that, in fact, Chinese Spy Balloons had transited parts of the U.S. 3 different times during the administration of his verified owner, Donald Trump.
You can actually watch his stupid face droop.
Of course the three balloon story is being vigorously disputed by drumpf and his minions, the latest argument being the Pentagon withheld that particular piece of vital intel from the idiot-in-chief… either that or he didn’t bother to read it…
“On Saturday, President Joe Biden had the mysterious, marauding Chinese balloon — which may or may not have been spying on Americans — shot down. The incident inspired lots of far right attacks on the sitting commander-in-chief, who they claimed was weak. Trump would have never let this kind of thing happen, they said. Then the Pentagon revealed he did. Thrice. So the former president did what he always does when news makes him and his cronies look bad: He simply denied it.
“The Chinese Balloon situation is a disgrace, just like the Afghanistan horror show, and everything else surrounding the grossly incompetent Biden Administration,” Trump railed on his rinky-dink Twitter clone. “They are only good at cheating in elections, and disinformation — and now they are putting out that a Balloon was put up by China during the Trump Administration, in order to take the ‘heat’ off the slow moving Biden fools. China had too much respect for ‘TRUMP’ for this to have happened, and it NEVER did. JUST FAKE DISINFORMATION!”
Elsewhere in Republican Land, Marco Rubio went on ABC’s This Week to rant about Biden’s balloon weakness — only to seemingly learn on the air that the same thing happened to Trump on multiple occasions. His face was priceless.“
Boy was it:
His face at the end PERFECTLY encapsulates the air being sucked out of balloon.

Of course MAGA types swarmed Krassentein’s post informing us that this could not have happened since it was denied by Trump, Pompeo and MTG – three of this century’s more accomplished liars:
Another lie from corporate media using anonymous sources and you’re spreading it.
John Ratcliffe, Former DNI
Mike Pompeo, Former SOS
Mark Esper, Former SecDef
Ric Grenell, Former DNI
Robert O’Brien, FMR National Security Adviser,
John Bolton, Trump hater

Perfection. Couldn't have scripted that if they had tried.

Seriously, did little Marco truly not know about the trump balloons? I think not.
So, that means he figured he could get away with misdirection and obfuscation.
The final expression is precious!

As was the shutting of his mouth.
Hey @marcorubio don't you have staff to keep you informed on what's going on in the world? Biden informed the people about the Chinese balloon, when he decided it was appropriate to inform them. Maybe TFG didn't because he was afraid of looking bad?

I don’t know if there is a Bible quote for this one, Lil Marco, maybe that “beam in your eye” thing…
Maybe you can find a better one before you embarrass yourself on TV again.
