Rubio: If same-sex marriage provision in Senate immigration bill, "I'm gone, I'm off it" + VIDEO: OK to get fired for being gay

I still see you Marco Rubio

You and that fake GOP outreach effort can't fool us, Marco Rubio, we're on to you!

The Hill:

"If this bill has in it something that gives gay couples immigration rights and so forth, it kills the bill," Rubio said Thursday on the "Andrea Tantaros Show." "I'm gone, I'm off it, and I've said that repeatedly. I don't think that's going to happen, and it shouldn't happen, this is already a difficult enough issue as it is."

Two days earlier, Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.), the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, introduced an amendment that would provide the same protections to immigrants in same-sex married couples as heterosexual couples. The amendment would allow partners of immigrants living in the country illegally to get a green card under new provisions of the immigration bill. The text of the amendment reads, "any marriage entered into full compliance with the laws of the State or foreign country within which such marriage was performed."

Add to that: Marco Rubio’s “massive heist”: “We see what you’re doing and it stinks… Stealing the future of 12 million people.”

...and Chris Hayes to Marco Rubio: “Be the best Lindsey Graham you can be. I’m setting the bar very, very low... To pull the bait and switch once? But three times? I’m sorry, Marco Rubio, but you can not be in two places at once…"

Call me crazy, but I'm guessing Latino voters won't exactly be flocking to the Republican party any time soon.

Nor gay voters: Rubio Says It Should Be Legal To Fire Someone For Being Gay:

    Poor Marco. He's aligned himself with a party that despises him..his parents were immigrants, and he's LATINO. Has he figured out what's wrong yet? Marco, be truthful. You do not believe the GOP cares one whit about you or your skin color, right? They pretend to like you only because they thought you'd bring in some votes. Now that they have disenfranchised those folks, they will soon be distancing themselves from you and your changing positions too. Take a page from Palin's book...they used her to get female votes (ha!) and then dumped her on Ailes' doorstep. Has Fox come calling you yet?

    Is this Latino man really for immigration reform? I don't think so. Don't be fooled by this empty suit.

    What a child. No one is looking to republicans for leadership. Conspiracy theories and belligerent obstruction? You bet! Constructive answers? No.
