Marco Rubio Quotes Rapper Jay-Z During Rand Paul Filibuster
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fl.) late Wednesday evening quoted rapper Jay-Z on the floor of the Senate during the historic filibuster launched earlier in the day by Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.).
SENATOR MARCO RUBIO (R-FLORIDA): That takes me back to another modern day poet by the name of Jay-Z in one of the songs he wrote: "It's funny what seven days can change. It was all good just a week ago."
Well, I don't know if it was all good a week ago, but I can tell you that things have really changed, because if the President was George W. Bush, and this was a question being asked of him, and his response was the silence we've gotten, we'd have a very different scenario here tonight except that I actually believe the Senator from Kentucky would be on the floor making the exact same argument he's making.
