If you read Rubio's statement at face value, it's basically saying that outrage over Cecil the Lion is wasted, because it's not compassion for "planned parenthood dead babies," which um ... oh, that's a whole other discussion. But unless you really are emotionally and intellectually stunted, you can show compassion and outrage for more than one thing at a time. Maybe some people, like Rubio, don't understand this because they, personally, can't? (If so, does that mean Rubio doesn't care about the dead lion at all? Not even a little?)
Look at all this outrage over a dead lion, but where is all the outrage over the planned parenthood dead babies.— Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) July 29, 2015
.@marcorubio this should end in a question mark, Senator. Planned Parenthood should also be capitalized— patrick (@pattymo) July 29, 2015
