Marco Rubio was brave enough to sit down with Jorge Ramos for an interview on the issues young voters care about most. Not only did Rubio prove he is completely out of touch with young Latinos, the child of immigrants also doubled down on his itch to get rid of DACA and DAPA. Maybe this is why NO major Latino organization has endorsed him?
Right out the gate, Jorge Ramos let Marco Rubio know it was a no bullsh*t interview.
You can just see the regret creeping in on Rubio’s face.

First up: climate change. Rubio is an adamant climate change denier.
Is Rubio aware the environment is one of the most important issues to Latinos in this presidential election? Latinos care more about the environment than anyone’s financial gain, even their own. Maybe that’s because the darker your skin, the worst the environmentally devastated your community is. As a Latino candidate who is supposed to bring in the Latino vote, homeboy should care more about OUR issues.
And how did Rubio respond to Ramos pointing out that just the result of just about every climate change study contradicts the candidate’s own views? By doubting the scientists asking for more environmental regulation…
“But I can tell you, with certainty, the impact they would have on our economy: it would be devastating,” Rubio told Ramos. “It would put millions of people out of work.”
Rubio’s responded with fear mongering that’s based on nothing.
Because, if you can’t convince them with facts and knowledge, you can always scare them into believing you.
Then Ramos came through and asked the child of Cuban immigrants how he would handle DACA and DAPA.
If looks could kill Rubio, would be the last man standing. Amiright? ?
Deep down inside, Rubio probably wanted to answer like:
But he was on camera talking to a Latino reporter so he tailored his answer accordingly.
Rubio did mention that he had no problem getting rid of DAPA because, according to him, it is only adding fuel to the fire of illegal immigration and is hindering the process of passing true reform. He did not back up his statement with factual evidence.
He then claimed that NO ONE is threatening mass deportation.
Wait…does he really think no one is saying they would deport all 12 million undocumented immigrants? What about Donald Trump? Or even fellow Cuban-American Ted Cruz?
Are you EVEN paying attention, Señor Rubio?
