Senator Marco Rubio R-FL

Today, January 23, 2017, after some teases and bold talk, Senator Rubio announced that he would, in fact, support Rex Tillerson’s nomination to be Secretary of State.

While it comes as no shock that the man Mr. Trump nicknamed “Little Marco” would back down in the end, it’s still depressing that we will be witnessing the constant unedifying spectacle of supposedly brave Republicans who said they would stand up to the President caving in at the last minute (or often earlier).
