Why did Marco Rubio use lyrics from Hov & Wiz to push Rand Paul’s filibuster?
Because politics. This dude even quoted the f***in’ Godfather.
As of this writing, Rand Paul’s filibuster protesting potential legal drone assassinations on American soil was entering its eleventh hour. In addition to support across Twitter as well as lots of concern about when/how Paul’s going to the bathroom, the filibuster featured a memorable moment from the Republican Party’s number one rap fan, Marco Rubio. As the the filibuster’s resident wannabe Afrika Bambaataa scholar, Rubio peppered his speech with references to “modern day poet” Wiz Khalifa, Jay-Z, and the “I’m going to make him an offer he can’t refuse” scene in The Godfather. Let’s hope this filibuster never ends.
