Something Extra: Rubio And Rock & Roll

MIAMI (CBS4) – Senator Marco Rubio responded to last night’s Something Extra where I showed you how the Senator joked in a speech about the challenges of the 1970s and got big laughs when he mentioned Jimmy Carter, bell bottoms and disco.

But he got some light-hearted booing when he messed with the Bee Gees, and I took him task about it.

Today, the Senator doubled down, maybe pulling my leg, tweeting a response, saying: “Those giving me grief for my Bee Gees comment, get Nicki Minaj’s new album to hear what good music sounds like.”

My taste in music is far from cutting-edge and I’m sure the Senator is much more hip than I am, but did you see Minaj’s controversial and atrocious performance at the Grammy Awards?

Is the Senator really listening to and liking that?

If he becomes the Republican running mate and gets elected, we might have some interesting music at the vice-presidential mansion.

There’s no accounting for taste… I’ll stick with the pre-disco Bee Gees.
