Today, Senator Marco Rubio held a Q&A for “young professionals” at St. Anselm College in New Hampshire. That sounds very boring, and it probably mostly was, except that Rubio gave perhaps the most insane answer possible to the question, “Who would you like to have a beer with who is not a politician?”
His answer: Malala!!!
Rubio asked who he'd want to have a beer with who's not a politician. He says Malala. Is that legal yet?— Benjy Sarlin (@BenjySarlin) November 4, 2015
Marco. My man.
This is hilarious on about 40,000 different levels, the first being that Malala is both a teenager and a practicing Muslim, which would prevent her from drinking alcohol twice over. There is also just the general image of Marco Rubio and Malala having a conversation at a bar at Marco Rubio’s insistence.
“I’ll have the IPA,” — Malala, as she sits down to drink a beer with Marco Rubio.
