While Rep. Alan Grayson (D) likes to refer to himself as the “Congressman with Guts,” and who believes he is much smarter than everyone else, most Americans that hear what comes out of Grayson’s mouth tend to think that he is just straight up “loco.”

Grayson is currently running for the U.S. Senate in Florida and is taking aim at outgoing U.S. Senator Marco Rubio, who he hopes to replace.

During an interview with HuffPost Live, Grayson said the following about Rubio:

“As far as I can tell, Marco Rubio has never been sincere in any statement that he’s made since puberty.”

Grayson was referring to Rubio’s “pathetic” position on the Syrian refugee crisis.

The host pressed further, pointing out that fellow GOP candidates Donald Trump and Ben Carson have driven the Republican Party’s rhetoric so far to the right that it’s hard to know whether Rubio is just angling for votes or means what he says.

Grayson said the small number of voters who vote in the GOP primary are forcing candidates to play “Who’s the biggest bigot.”

According to Grayson, only Republican African-Americans like Ben Carson,  and American-Hispanics like Rubio, Cruz, who just so happen to be Republican, are bigots.
