When you’re running for President of the United States, you can never really account for everything that’s going to happen or be asked during any given campaign event. One person who is realizing this right now is Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL).
While Rubio was at an event for his presidential campaign in New York City he was taking questions from people in the audience. Something that is quite normal considering citizens have questions for presidential candidates.
However, one man, or rather a heckler, decided he would start asking a series of questions that really didn’t have anything to do with Rubio’s campaign whatsoever.
Catching the candidate off guard, the heckler, who introduced himself as Greg Waltman, asked several questions pertaining to Nicole Lapin and wire fraud:
“How do you plan to fix accountability in courts? How do you plan to deal with fraud?”
Continuing, the heckler said:
“The answer is you can’t. You cheated on your wife in Florida…I think you should drop out of the race. Your polling numbers are too low to win.”
Yikes! That’s a pretty big accusation. The heckler is likely referring to rumors regarding Rubio cheating, but that’s pretty much all they are at this point — rumors.
The heckler was then ushered out of the room after this line of questioning.
Rubio’s face during the entire thing, however, was pretty darn amusing. He looked completely taken off guard and had a look of utter confusion on his face. The only response he could say after it all went down was:
“It was actually kind of weird, anyway.”
Oh, Rubio, yes, it was kind of weird, but so are you, so it all evens out.
Rubio handled the entire thing with ease under pressure, but he should probably figure out a way to screen those sort of folks out at future campaign events.
