Thursday on MSNBC following the Republican presidential debate hosted by CNN, “Hardball” host Chris Matthews suggested the campaign for Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) had planted a “squealer” to react positively on Rubio’s behalf whenever the Florida senator offered a response.
“I hope people when they watch this know this was all choreographed. It was all part of a PR operation,” Matthews said.
“It was that squealer out in the audience that was clearly [Rubio media consultant] Todd Harris and the rest of the Rubio people hired to put her out there, a couple of them, three or four of them, squealing at the top of their lungs every single time that Rubio said anything,” he added. “It was the most unnatural, phony thing in the world. And I hope people when they watch this know this was all choreographed. It was all part of a PR operation.”
