On Fox Across America with Jimmy Failla, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) addressed the back and forth he and AOC had on Twitter regarding Joe Biden's incoming deputy chief of staff about Republicans. He also addressed whether there should be a special counsel appointed to look into Hunter Biden.
"I want to tell you something, I'm generally not in favor of special counsels per se, specifically because they sort of wander off into new areas of inquiry that isn't what their mandate was. But at this point, I just don't know how you get to the bottom of this when you have an Attorney General or a Justice Department, and you ask them to investigate their boss or someone linked to their boss."
"When she mentioned that, I don't know of any Senator did that. I think that's something that happened over in the House, which, frankly I wasn't deeply aware of, because I follow things that are happening in the Senate. I'm not in the House, I'm not around it. And I don't read every news clip about every drama. I spend most of my day working not like following what's on Twitter or reading whatever, I mean I read the news in the morning and I go to work. It's not a Republican senator, that's for sure that she was referring to. As far as the broader issue of attacking people, all I'm saying is, we've been hearing for a long time Biden is supposed to be ushering in the return of sort of decorum and respect and dignity to politics. And here you have the statement in a magazine by someone who's going to be the Deputy Chief of Staff. She's gone on the record the day after saying I probably shouldn't use those words. Everybody here has used language from time to time and privately or publicly that they would do differently. I'm not perfect, no one is. My point being is that let's not kid ourselves into thinking that the harshness that people don't like in American politics only comes from the right. It comes plenty from the left. It has long been the position of the left that conservatives are people that want to oppress women or don't care about minorities. And in fact, they go even deeper and argue that some of the people who voted for the President did so because there are flat out racists and xenophobes. And that's pretty harsh language right there."
