TMZ Tracks Down Marco Rubio to Ask Him About Cecil the Lion

Marco RubioTMZ caught up with Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio outside of Ronald Reagan National Airport, and asked him a question about the single most important issue of our time: Cecil the lion.

“I know the country’s been in an uproar about Cecil the tiger [sic],” said TMZ’s crack reporter. “A lot of people have a different takes on it. How do you feel about that?

“I don’t know a lot about this story,” Rubio admitted. “Obviously there’s laws in that country, so whatever laws there were, that guy should have followed them.”

Rubio repeated the same point that he made on Twitter, namely that people should be more concerned about the Planned Parenthood videos. “But you know, everyone’s fired up about this tiger- or this lion– people should be more fired up about these babies that are coming out of the Planned Parenthood videos. If people are going to be outraged about an animal being killed, they should also be outraged about a human being being killed…”
