Marco Rubio Challenges Obama: Demands Evidence of 'Anti-Muslim Discrimination...'
President Obama's address last night about keeping America safe in the age of terrorism covered a few things - perceived Islamophobia, gun control laws that wouldn't have prevented anything, etc. One thing it didn't do? Mention how Obama's going to keep America safe in the age of terrorism. Not only did he not say anything, but according to Marco Rubio, he may have even made things worse...
"People are really scared and worried. You know, last night I ran into a couple who often travels abroad or to other parts of the country for New Year’s Eve. For the first time in over a decade, they’re not traveling anywhere this year because they’re so scared. Ran into someone else today who said they’re avoiding stadiums and malls during the holiday season because they're scared. And people are scared not just because of these attacks but because a growing sense that we have a president that’s completely overwhelmed by them."
Something I thought was particularly ballsy.
"... and then the cynicism! The cynicism tonight, to spend a significant amount of time talking about discrimination against Muslims. Where is the wide-spread evidence that we have a problem in America with discrimination against Muslims? And the refusal to call it what this is. A war on radical Islam."
Boom. This is a perfect example of Obama wanting to play the leftist, SJW card, which he should be fulfilling his role as Commander in Chief. Instead, he decides to focus on "marginalized minorities." That term. Whenever it's used...
Instead of merely taking the bait, Marco Rubio issued a challenge. Oh, Americans are discriminatory you say? Okay, prove it.
Put another way...

His followers have taken to Twitter to claim the President wasn't talking to reporters and pundits. Apparently, he wasn't talking to Americans either. So who was we talking to?
