Rubio: Rand’s Syria Comments ‘Misreading’ History, Trump Should Be Allowed To Host SNL

Republican presidential candidate Florida Senator Marco Rubio accused fellow candidate Kentucky Senator Rand Paul of “misreading” history with regards to Syria and stated that fellow candidate Donald Trump should be allowed to host “Saturday Night Live” and those who oppose it should simply not watch the show on Tuesday’s “Your World with Neil Cavuto” on the Fox News Channel.

Rubio said, [relevant exchange begins around 8:30] in response to Rand’s comments that Ronald Reagan avoided war with Russia by not drawing red lines, “that’s a fundamental misreading of history. I mean, we most certainly airlifted supplies into Berlin when they created a blockade. We most certainly supported all kinds of groups around the world that were taking on the spread of Communism. I would further add that in the absence of that in the Middle East, what you’re going to continue to see is migratory pressures on our allies, and ultimately into Europe. You’re going to continue to see the spread of Russian influence. You’re going to continue to see the growth of ISIS. And so, eventually, all that will come to us.”

Rubio was also asked about those protesting Donald Trump hosting “Saturday Night Live.” He responded, “Well, don’t watch the show. I mean, if you don’t like some show, that he’s on, then they should turn the channel off and not watch it. I mean, it’s a free country. I don’t agree with everything Donald Trump says. I don’t agree with everything the other side says either. But, if you don’t like it, don’t watch the show.”
