Democrats and the media really overplayed their hand on January 6th and everyone knows it.
Senator Marco Rubio mocked Democrats over it in a speech that was actually pretty funny.
Democrats and the media earned this mockery.
Here’s a transcript from a Rubio press release:
The good news is that the overwhelming majority of Americans happen to live back here on planet earth. And what they’re worried about – to the extent they even paid attention to any of this stuff that’s been said over the last two weeks – what they’re really worried about is the fact that everything costs more. You go to the grocery store and the shelves are empty.
They have a small business and they hire someone on Monday and he never comes back. You’ve got, everyday, thousands of people illegally entering the United States across an open border. And by the way, we have a surge in violent crime and lawlessness across the country. That’s probably what they’re worried about – in fact, I know it is – on a daily basis.
But to the extent they paid attention to any of this… first of all, I think almost everyone would tell you that what happened on January 6th here was a terrible thing. It should never have happened and it should never happen again. But I don’t care how many candlelight vigils and musical performances you have from the cast of Hamilton, you’re not going to convince at least most normal and sane people that our government was almost overthrown last year by a guy wearing a Viking hat and speedos.
And I don’t care how many of these speeches the President gives in which he shouts out this hyperbole and all this melodrama, you’re not going to convince people that having a state pass a law that says, for example that you have to produce identification, is the same as segregation.
Here’s a video:

An instant classic. More Republicans should get in on this.
