Rick Santorum Endorses Marco Rubio But Can’t Name Any Of His Accomplishments [VIDEO]

Last yesterday afternoon Rick Santorum simultaneously ended his presidential bid and endorsed Marco Rubio. This morning on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Santorom flailed about when asked to name just one of Rubio’s accomplishments. Mediaite recaps the conversation:

Santorum was utterly unable to answer a direct question from Morning Joe‘s Joe Scarborough. What followed was a dizzying array of questionable sidesteps and half-answers from Santorum, who himself won the Iowa Caucus in 2012.

To Scarborough’s question, Santorum meekly managed to say that Rubio, “[Won] a tough election in Florida, pull[ing] people together from a variety of spots.” Scarborough wasn’t having it, and repeated the question multiple times while others on the Morning Joe panel laughed at the absurdity of the situation. “He’s someone who brings people together!” Santorum admitted sheepishly.

“He’s been in the Senate four years. Can you name his top accomplishment?” pressed Scarborough once more. Mika Brzezinski pushed the former Pennsylvania Senator further, leading him with “Jeb Bush ran Florida. Donald Trump built a company. Marco Rubio… finish the sentence.” Predictably, Santorum could not, though he maintained his smile throughout the brief interview.
