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.

    Mora, you and your “something extra” and Rubio need to go. It’s quite obvious
    your using your editorials to hype Rubio and bash the President, just as Rubio
    bashes the President publicly. Mora, you are a disgrace to CBS News and
    Rubio is a liar and a disgrace to the middle class of FLorida.

    I would stick with the Bee Gees- any era, over almost anyone. The most brilliant and talented songwriter/musicians of our time. And do your political beliefs really dictate your taste in music? Hmm, the word Ideologue comes to mind. Still it is a solid Bee Gees for me.
