Marco Rubio Faces the Internet’s Wrath for Whining About Annapolis Reporter’s F-Bomb


Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) responded to the massacre of five journalists at an Annapolis newspaper by whining about civility -- and he was quickly drowned in profanity.

A 38-year-old Maryland man opened fire inside the Capital-Gazette newsroom Thursday as part of a longstanding grudge against the newspaper, and one survivor uttered an uncensored profanity afterward on live television.

“I don’t know what I want right now but I’m going to need more than a couple days of news coverage and thoughts and prayers," reporter Selene San Felice told CNN. "Thanks for your prayers, but I couldn’t give a f*ck about them if there’s nothing else."

Rubio was apparently more upset by the reporter's obscenity than the murders of five of her colleagues.

"Sign of our times... the F word is now routinely used in news stories, tweets etc It’s not even F*** anymore," Rubio tweeted. "Who made that decision???"

Twitter users quickly turned on the Florida Republican.
