Saying we already have a president “that has no class,” Republican presidential contender Marco Rubio questioned whether Donald Trump’s recent behavior is appropriate for the top office in the land.
In an appearance Wednesday on “Fox & Friends,” the U.S. senator from Florida said the president of the United States “is the leader of our people and our nation as well.”
“It’s important we have – to conduct the presidency, it has to be done in a dignified way, with a level of class,” he said. “I don’t think the way he’s behaved over the last few weeks is either dignified or worthy of the office he seeks.”
Rubio then offered stinging criticism of President Obama.
“We already have a president now that has no class,” he said. “I mean, we have a president now that does selfie-stick videos, that invites YouTube stars there, people who eat cereal out of a bathtub … he goes on comedy shows to talk about something as serious as Iran. The list goes on and on.”
Suggesting the next president will be faced with repairing the reputation of the office, Rubio was unsure if Trump was up to the task.
“It’s important to have a presidency that restores dignity and class to the White House,” he said. “And I don’t believe that some of the language Mr. Trump is employing is worthy of the office. I just do not.”
