Marco Rubio Heckled During Speech, Takes Swipe at Crist

By Javier Manjarres

More fun and games at the RNC in Tampa as the Republican Party of Florida’s Tuesday breakfast was interrupted by liberal hecklers during Senator Marco Rubio keynote address. Several hecklers stood up and interrupted Rubio during his remarks,  immediately after he took a shot at Crist for supporting President Barack Obama.

One of the hecklers yelled out, “we the working class demand that the GOP stop whoring themselves out to special interests.” The last heckler escorted out was a familiar face to many, as she was the star of a past Shark Tank video in which she heckled former Republican Presidential candidate Newt Gingrich.

We caught up to ‘Kara’ and the rest of her following as the local Sheriff’s office issued a trespassing warning and then escorted them off the premises.

Here is the video of Rubio being interrupted and his quick comedic response to the hecklers. Rubio was so amused by his ‘fans’ that he jokingly assaulted the Shark Cam.
