'Outraged' Marco Rubio says Debbie Wasserman Schultz attack over fundraiser a sign of Democratic 'panic'
Marco Rubio decried on Fox News Thursday night an attack from Debbie Wasserman Schultz over attending a fundraiser at the home of a man who owns Hitler paintings.
“I was outraged,” Rubio told Bill O’Reilly, who opened his show by condemning Wasserman Schultz.
Rubio said it was a sign Democrats are in a “panic” over the struggles Hillary Clinton has faced. And he pointed out that Wasserman Schultz is in favor of the Iran nuclear deal, suggesting she betrayed her own Jewish people.
The fundraiser was Tuesday at the Dallas home Harlan Crow, who has an extensive collection of historical items, including the Hilter-created art. Noting the event came on Yom Kippur, Wasserman Schultz said, “There’s really no excuse for such a gross act of disrespect.”
A number of outlets lashed out at Wasserman Schultz’s attack as pathetic.
O’Reilly also asked Rubio about Trump and Rubio said his adversary lacks foreign policy knowledge, or knowledge of any policy in general.
