Marco Rubio released a new video saying that his economic plan is right because MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow thinks it’s wrong. “How can you know the plan is right? Rachel Maddow says it’s wrong,” says the ad. The clip shows an intro to a Maddow segment on Marco Rubio’s plan. “Giant awkwardness at the heart of Republicanism right now,” says Maddow, with the headline “Attention: Deficit Disorder” behind her.
This isn’t the first time that Maddow has been the target of Republican politicians. In March, Sen. Scott Brown sent out a fundraising email citing a blog post from the obscure site Universal Hub. “I’m sure she’s a nice person — I just don’t think America can afford her liberal politics,” read the email.
No word from Maddow yet on how she will respond, but hopefully it will be as funny as when she had herself on as a guest to talk about the Brown e-mail.
