Rubio Campaign Follows Trump In Taking Credit After Terrorist Attack

Jun 29, 2016

Marco Rubio’s campaign team is following Donald Trump’s example and taking credit for “predicting” terrorist attacks.

Alex Conant, former director of communications for Rubio’s presidential campaign and current consultant to his senate re-election effort, tweeted several articles claiming that the ever-absent senator “predicted” yesterday’s bombing in Instanbul:

Rubio’s finance director Anna Rogers Duncan also highlighted the article on her Twitter page:

Rubio has a history of using terrorism to his political advantage —  not the least of which includes citing the Orlando shooting to revitalize his run for re-election. Shortly after the Paris attack, Rubio callously said he thought the event was a “positive development.” The day after saying he wouldn’t “spurn” Trump, it’s unsurprising to see Rubio’s campaign using the same techniques as the dangerous demagogue.
