Marco Rubio Has Been Trying to Ditch His ‘Working-Class Neighborhood’ for Months Now

Not bad.

During his State of the Union response last night, thirsty Florida senator Marco Rubio highlighted his humble roots and his devotion to his salt-of-the-earth community:


Mr. President, I still live in the same working class neighborhood I grew up in. My neighbors aren’t millionaires. They’re retirees who depend on Social Security and Medicare. They’re workers who have to get up early tomorrow morning and go to work to pay the bills. They’re immigrants, who came here because they were stuck in poverty in countries where the government dominated the economy … I don’t oppose your plans because I want to protect the rich. I oppose your plans because I want to protect my neighbors.”

What Rubio neglected to mention is that this home of his has been up for sale for $675,000 since November and that he’s moving his family to D.C. as soon as he can get rid of it, in order to spend more time with his kids.
