ESPN’s Kornheiser: Young Rubio Fooled by Prank Shula Calls Disqualifies Him as 2016 Candidate

On Tuesday’s Washington, D.C.’s ESPN 980’s “The Tony Kornheiser Show,” host Tony Kornheiser reacted to Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) announcing his intent to run for 2016 Republican presidential nomination.

For Father’s Day of 2014, Rubio wrote an article for The Daily Caller on why American families need strong fathers.

According to Kornheiser, the fact that a young Rubio could not tell the difference between his dad and legendary Miami Dolphins coach Don Shula automatically disqualifies him from being president.

“Marco Rubio is going to try and sell us on notion that he thought that was Don Shula calling every day,” Kornheiser said. “You have cognition at 8-10 and if you’re the biggest Dolphins fan in the world I guarantee you you’re watching the postgame and you’ve heard Don Shula. You’ve grown up with the voice of Don Shula. I’m sorry, Don Shula doesn’t sound like Papi LeBatard [co-host of ESPN’s Highly Questionable]. He doesn’t, because he’s born in Ohio. What I’m saying is, this to me automatically disqualifies Marco Rubio from being president.”
