Rubio: Biden is 'demented man propped up by wicked and deranged people'

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) slammed President Biden on Friday calling him a “demented man” in a post on the social media platform X.

“Our current President is a demented man propped up by wicked & deranged people willing to destroy our country to remain in power,” Rubio said in the post, which features a video of Biden following a Friday announcement about the Israel-Hamas war.

In the video, Biden is walking away from a podium as someone asks him a question.

“Mr. President, can you tell us sir, [former President Trump] refers to himself as a ‘political prisoner’ and blames you directly, what’s your response to that, sir?” the person asks.

The president then stops walking mid-question, turns around and smiles.

An email from Trump National Committee JFC attempting to raise funds off of the former president’s recent guilty verdict in his New York husk money case featured a photo of Trump that labeled him as a “political prisoner.”

“Friend: Is this the end of America? I was just convicted in a RIGGED political Witch Hunt trial: I DID NOTHING WRONG! They’ve raided my home, arrested me, took my mugshot, AND NOW THEY’VE JUST CONVICTED ME! But with your support at this moment in history, WE WILL WIN BACK THE WHITE HOUSE AND MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!” the email reads.

Trump on Thursday became the first former president to acquire the status of being a convicted felon following a jury finding him guilty on all counts of falsifying business records to hide alleged affairs amid his 2016 campaign.

Rubio, considered a possible contender for Trump’s vice presidential slot on his 2024 ticket, is one of many prominent Republicans who have criticized the verdict in the hush money case. 

“I think it’s terrible. I think what this shows today, is that they can go after a former president with a ridiculous charge like this and gain a conviction, they can go after anybody,” Rubio said on Fox News’ “Hannity” Thursday.

“And most people can’t afford to fight this stuff off.”
