In the third Republican presidential debate, a moderator asked Rubio about his personal finances. Rubio answered:
Well, you just – you just listed a litany of discredited attacks from Democrats and my political opponents, and I’m not gonna waste 60 seconds detailing them all.
I trusted him. Then I read this article.
Clearly, Rubio has the ability to lie straight-faced into the camera. You really can’t argue with court records. Court records are not discredited attacks. Those are hard facts.

Go back and read it again — carefully. Pay special attention to the “and so on.” I have no idea if the other things were lies, and I’m not particularly a Rubio fan, but I’ve often enough been a victim of that kind of all-inclusive arm-waving that I’m sensitized to it. And Rubio didn’t say they were ALL discredited, just that a “litany” of them were.
Thanks for the insight!
