Don’t get us wrong, we’re not trying to imply that Rubio is racist. Maybe he is, maybe he isn’t; we have no idea. But he is definitely color-blind in the medical sense:


Now, you’re probably saying to yourself, “Well, that’s the end of Rubio’s national ambitions. No way a president could function without differentiating between colors, one of our most vital everyday skills.” But in fact, Bill Clinton is color-blind too, according to the Encyclopedia of Genetic Disorders and Birth Defects — which, by the way, we highly recommend if you need a good beach read this summer.
