Marco Rubio Kinda Fell Apart During The Last #GOPDebate

Marco Rubio DID NOT have a good night at a recent ABC News debate. In one of the debate’s most memorable moments, the Florida Senator went toe-to-toe with New Jersey governor Chris Christie. Christie called out Rubio for repeating a memorized speech and the Internet was ALL OVER IT. Rubio got so flustered that he just continued repeating the same line all night.

Rubio was soaring after his third place finish in Iowa, and then Chris Christie went full savage during Saturday’s debate.

And, for a change, it wasn’t Donald Trump making all the noise. #DreamsDoComeTrue

So, what was Christie attacking Rubio on? His rehearsed, 25-second stump speech. You know, the one that Rubio used five times during the debate and three more times afterward.

But, specifically, this line: “Let’s dispel once and for all with this fiction that Barack Obama doesn’t know what he’s doing. He knows exactly what he’s doing.”

And the Internet did what the Internet does: gave birth to #MarcoRoboto.

Others are waiting for the day that Rubio goes full malfunction.

 

Rubio is being compared to the Terminator… but, like, the hurt and damaged Terminator.

Someone even captured the whole exchange in one drawing.

And it was eerily similar to this tweet about Rubio’s debate prep.

It didn’t take long for someone to use the Cuban-American candidate’s words against him.

Rubio’s robotic message also inspired these genius Halloween costumes.

Bravo, Rubio. Your words are making a lasting impression in pop culture.
