Obama fanboy Colin Powell caused some commotion among people who actually care what he still thinks after an appearance on “Meet the Depressed” Sunday, alleging the GOP has an identity problem among minorities.
Amusingly enough, Powell doesn’t seem to be aware the GOP has a majority of minorities in the United States Senate, and today one of them corrected the alleged Republican.
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) hit back Monday at a remark made by former Secretary of State Colin Powell, who told NBC’s “Meet the Press” over the weekend that “a dark vein of intolerance” in some parts of the Republican Party was alienating centrist and minority voters.
“I disagree with General Powell’s assessment of the Republican Party today,” Rubio said on “The Andrea Tantaros Show,” according to audio uncovered by The Daily Caller.
Rubio cited growing diversity among Republicans in the Senate as evidence the party had increasing appeal among minorities.
“The Republican Party is the party that placed two Hispanics in the U.S. Senate,” Rubio, a Cuban-American, continued. “And we have an African-American senator in the United States Senate.”
