On Wednesday, as the students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School returned to classes, Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) slammed the students for being “infected” with “arrogance and boasting.”
Last week, Rubio took a beating at the CNN town hall that featured the teen survivors.
His approval rating also took a hit. Following the town hall, his approval rating plummeted to just 38 percent.
It seemed as though his new approval rating upset him.
He took to Twitter and wrote, “The debate after #Parkland reminds us We The People don’t really like each other very much.We smear those who refuse to agree with us.We claim a Judea-Christian heritage but celebrate arrogance & boasting. & worst of all we have infected the next generation with the same disease.”

Below are reactions slamming Rubio for his tweet:
You got owned and exposed by those kids even more than when Trump embarrassed you constantly during the campaign, how you look at yourself in the mirror is beyond me

The kids dunked on Rubio so much they broke him. Always knew he was an emotionless robot.
Will they fix him, or is he just going to speak in Christian Emo Rock lyrics forever now? pic.twitter.com/DWDy4X95km

I think what you meant was: “Good luck to the Parkland students who are returning to school today. Your bravery and action in the aftermath of tragedy is to be commended. We offer you our thoughts and prayers today, but also our commitment to act.”

Mr. Rubio, as an Episcopalian I find your attempts to use Christianity as both a political weapon and a shield deeply morally offensive, particularly on this issue. I wish I still lived in Florida just so I could vote against you.

You are owned by the NRA. Florida would have been better off if you had “retired”.

No, Senator, you’re off by a bit. We like EACH OTHER just fine.
It’s having YOU as our representative that we don’t like.

Maybe you are projecting and it reminded you that people don’t like you very much. Many of us like each other and definitely love and admire the #parkland kids, who are braver than anybody I know. #parklandstrong #NeverAgain

Get over yourself. You’re an elected official (for now). Stop crying because teenaged victims of gun violence made you look stupid. Blow your nose, wash your face, and do your job.
