This Paper Just Broke Up With Marco Rubio Because Of Donald Trump

The Senate race in Florida is heating up and the Miami Herald just added more fuel to the fire. The newspaper, which has long been on Marco Rubio‘s side, threw their support behind Democratic candidate Patrick Murphy. What can be more embarrassing than losing the support of your hometown newspaper? Not a lot. Here are just some of the reasons that the Miami Herald is backing Rubio’s opponent.

Marco Rubio just lost one of his biggest allies: the Miami Herald.

The newspaper claims that they have always supported the politician since the beginning of his political career. However, the debate on Oct. 17 changed their mind, and they are now officially endorsing Rubio’s opponent Patrick Murphy.

Why? Well, here are some of the reasons they mentioned.

He is disastrously anti-LGBTQ, but wants to use the Pulse shootings to catapult his political career.

Rubio made his re-election announcement after the Pulse Nightclub shooting that killed 49 LGBTQ people and allies, mainly Latinos. Yet, he has been vehemently anti-LGBTQ rights. He has voted against marriage equality, tried to ban same-sex couples from adopting children in Florida, and he voted against discrimination protection for LGBTQ Americans in the workplace. So, how is it that he cares at all about the LGBTQ community?

He is also pretty pro-Second Amendment despite being “moved” by the Pulse Nightclub massacre.

Rubio voted against a bill that would ban all people on terrorist watch lists from gaining access to guns because it was drafted by a Democrat. He then turned around and voted in favor of a bill that would not ban people on no-fly lists unless a court ruled that they are a risk within three days of applying for the gun.

Rubio is opposed to the Affordable Healthcare Act and wants to repeal it despite it being proven to work.


The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services released a lengthy and detailed study proving that the ACA was working for Americans. Not only are costs for healthcare going down, the number of people being insured are steadily rising.

“The evidence is clear when it comes to access, affordability, and quality the Affordable Care Act is working,” the HHS states.

The Miami Herald understands, as does Patrick Murphy, that climate change is something that needs to be addressed.

Rubio spent a lot of his time during his failed presidential campaign denying that climate change is real. Now, he isn’t the only politician that is denying climate change, and he isn’t the only politician in Florida denying climate change. However, scientists and science have unequivocally destroyed all the arguments put forth by climate change deniers. Not to mention that Florida is one of the states that will be hardest hit by flooding if climate change continues to get worse.

He is proud of being one of the politicians crippling the U.S. justice system by blocking a Supreme Court nominee.


“He has joined the Senate majority in the scandalous move to block any consideration of the president’s nominee for a Supreme Court vacancy,” reads part of the Miami Herald‘s scathing endorsement announcement. “He has unilaterally blocked other meritorious presidential nominations for purely political reasons, including confirmation of a judge he himself had once recommended.”

The editorial board of the newspaper even went after Rubio’s continued support of Donald Trump.

As they mention, they can’t understand how he could be supporting Trump. Not only because he is a dangerous and offensive presidential candidate, but because Rubio is sticking to the GOP nominee solely for political gain.

“Mr. Trump’s candidacy is a test of character, and Sen. Rubio is failing that test,” the Miami Herald editorial board states. “How can voters believe he’s sincere when he says he does not share Mr. Trump’s awful views on Mexicans, immigrants, Muslims, women, etc., yet — at the same time — stands by his endorsement of the New York billionaire?”

For those, and other reasons, one of Rubio’s longest allies and hometown staples is backing his opponent, Patrick Murphy.


Murphy, according to the Miami Herald, has proven that he would do all these things differently than Rubio, and those actions are something they can stand behind.

AOC Gets Under Ted Cruz’s Skin With Crack About His Mexican Getaway After He Accuses Her Of Pushing For ‘open borders’

AOC Gets Under Ted Cruz’s Skin With Crack About His Mexican Getaway After He Accuses Her Of Pushing For ‘open borders’

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Ted Cruz are at it again on Twitter. This time it’s about immigration policy. After recently traveling to the US-Mexican border to underline the recent rise in immigration, Cruz accused AOC of pushing for a “full open borders” policy.

And of course, AOC got him with some solid zingers.

AOC in turn hit back at Cruz for recently fleeing his home state of Texas during its power grid collapse to vacation in Cancún.

In response to Cruz’s attack, AOC suggested Mexico avoid allowing Cruz in the next time he attempts to vacation there. She also called on him to resign from office for his attempt to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election.

“Ted, this is pretty rich coming from someone who fled their own home (and responsibilities) during an environmental crisis to cross the border and seek refuge in Mexico,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “Also you funded cages, expanded cages, and yet you’re complaining about cages. You have no policy, just puff.”

Ocasio-Cortez accused Republicans of hypocritically attacking the current administration’s detention of migrant children at the border after they supported President Donald Trump’s policy of separating migrant parents from their children.

Currently, Democrats like AOC are calling on Biden to impliment more liberal immigration policies.

Republicans have strongly expressed their dislike for the recent rise in migrants which has come as a result of Biden’s reversal of Trump’s most rigid border policies.

AOC is currently a co-sponsor of the Roadmap to Freedom resolution. The resolution calls on the Federal Government to develop and implement a Roadmap to Freedom “in order to overhaul the outdated immigration system in the United States that has gone without significant reform for decades, and to relieve the great human impact an unjust system bears on communities around the country.”

Naked Woman Is Stuck In Storm Drain For Weeks But How She Got There Is Even More Strange

Naked Woman Is Stuck In Storm Drain For Weeks But How She Got There Is Even More Strange

Rescuers are still scratching their heads after helping a woman out of a storm drain, where she had allegedly been trapped for weeks. Although her family is glad that the woman has been rescued, they have more questions than answers about the woman’s past few weeks.

Woman is rescued from storm drain after being missing for three weeks.

A 43-year-old woman who had been missing for three weeks was rescued Tuesday after she was found trapped inside a storm drain just a few feet away from a busy street in the Florida city of Delray Beach. She was naked and unable to stand on her own.

The bizarre rescue began when a good Samaritan heard yelling coming from a drain and called 911, according to Delray Beach Fire Rescue. How she ended up in the drain is even more unusual:

The woman told officers she went for a swim in a canal near her boyfriend’s home in West Delray Beach on March 3, according to Delray Beach police.

“While she was swimming, she came across a doorway near a shallow part of the canal. She stated she entered the doorway and noticed a tunnel,” reads the March 23 incident report. According to the report, she became curious and began walking down the tunnel, which led to another tunnel and so on until she became lost.

Thanks to the good Samaritan, the woman is now recovering.

If it weren’t for the compassion of one bystander, the woman could still be trapped. “There’s a lady stuck in a sewer, yes ma’am, she cannot get out. She’s screaming for help … she don’t have no clothes,” a woman told the 911 operator, according to a recording of the call the Miami Herald obtained through a public record request. The woman told the operator she was in her car, with her windows down, when she heard the screams.

The woman will now undergo a mental assessment. Her mother told police she has a history of mental illness and is known for “doing odd things and making bad decisions when she is high on drugs,” according to the report. Police said she is a Methadone patient and that her last dose was the day prior to her disappearance.

Her boyfriend had reported her missing three weeks before her rescue.

The woman had been reported missing by her boyfriend on March 3, after 9 p.m., when he spoke to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office.

Police say they don’t know how long the woman was in the tunnels. The woman claims she was walking in the tunnels, lost, for about three weeks until she “saw some light” and decided to sit there because she saw people walking by, according to the report. It’s unclear how long it took for someone to notice her.
