Rick Santorum Endorses Marco Rubio, Can't Name One Of Rubio's "Accomplishments"


Truly cringe-worthy TV there.

Rick Santorum has gone from the guy who won the 2012 Iowa Caucuses to coming in next to last this year, to endorsing someone for president that he can't name ONE political accomplishment other than "winning a tough election."

Santorum made an appearance on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" to praise Rubio, but clearly left his talking points in the dressing room.

From Mediaite:

“What do you list as Marco Rubio’s top accomplishment?”.

What followed was a dizzying array of questionable sidesteps and half-answers from Santorum, who himself won the Iowa Caucus in 2012. To Scarborough’s question, Santorum meekly managed to say that Rubio, “[Won] a tough election in Florida, pull[ing] people together from a variety of spots.”

Scarborough wasn’t having it, and repeated the question multiple times while others on the Morning Joe panel laughed at the absurdity of the situation.

“He’s someone who brings people together!” Santorum admitted sheepishly.

“He’s been in the Senate four years. Can you name his top accomplishment?” pressed Scarborough once more.

Mika Brzezinski pushed the former Pennsylvania Senator further, leading him with “Jeb Bush ran Florida. Donald Trump built a company. Marco Rubio… finish the sentence.” Predictably, Santorum could not, though he maintained his smile throughout the brief interview.
