Murtaza M. Hussain of the “Intercept” replied with snark to an article where Florida Senator Marco Rubio called on the GOP to rebrand as the party of “multiethnic, multiracial, working class” voters.
Hussain wrote mockingly “Marco Rubio is joining the Squad.”
This led two actual progressive “squad” members – Ilhan Omar and AOC, to deny Rubio membership, though he never actually requested it.
Omar replied to Hussain “Membership rejected.”
AOC added “By unanimous vote.”
One Twitter user replied “Ah yes @DNC the party of tolerance, unity, and inclusion.”
