It’s ok, he’s a Republican.
Via Miami Herald:
A top assistant to an Univision news boss trashed Sen. Marco Rubio on the Facebook page of the Republican’s aide, raising new questions about possible pro-Democratic, anti-Rubio bias inside the powerful Spanish-language network’s Doral headquarters.
The latest incident began Wednesday night after Rubio’s spokesman, Alex Burgos, announced the high-profile Florida senator would give the GOP’s first-ever bilingual rebuttal to President Obama’s State of the Union speech.
That led Univision employee Angelica Artiles to let loose a string of partisan criticisms.
“Oh. wow, the loser is going to speak after our President,” Artiles wrote on spokesman Alex Burgos’ Facebook page at 9:33 p.m. Wednesday. “Anything to get publicity. Ask him to do us a favor and stay home that night.” […]
Univision had no comment.
Both Artiles and Burgos were far more talkative on Wednesday. After Artiles called Rubio a “loser,” Burgos responded with an attack on Obama.
“While you may be content with mediocrity under this President, I am not,” Burgos wrote. “And fortunately neither are patriots like Marco Rubio who have opportunities like next Tuesday night to offer an alternative way forward. I am proud to work for him and actually feel sorry for you for writing this.”
Artiles shot back: “Patriot? LOL Alex Burgos.”
She then used a diminutive term for Rubio’s first name, “Marquito,” and proceeded to compare him to a Disney dwarf, a “slave boy” and a “fool” who was passed over by Republican Mitt Romney on his presidential ticket last November.
