Former Republican governor Charlie Crist said in a Fusion TV interview that he left the Republican party because he “couldn’t be consistent” with with his “core beliefs and stay with a party that was so unfriendly toward the African-American president.” “I’ll just go there,” Crist said. “You know, because I was a Republican and I saw the activists and what they were doing, it was intolerable to me,” he added.
In response to Crist’s insane assertion that the Republican party is racist, Sen. Marco Rubio (R., Fla.) said, “I think it’s ridiculous and silly.”
“My prediction is by the end of this election, even Democrats will be embarrassed that Charlie Crist became a Democrat. But I would say if this was in fact how he felt at the time, why didn’t he say it? Why didn’t he say ‘I’m not running as a Republican because I think the Republican party has become’ whatever he accuses it of becoming, and why did he switch to Democrat? Why did he run as an Independent,” Rubio asked.
Host Neil Cavuto asked Rubio if he thought Crist was a “phony.”
“Absolutely,” Rubio replied.
Then the Fox News host pointed out to Rubio that Crist is currently leading in the polls right now.
“He led in the polls against me too,” Rubio said.
