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.

    Where is the video of the rest of the hecklers? I heard from a friend he looked stunned after the second heckler. There was a total of 5, right?

    The group also included former Lake Worth City Commissioner Cara Jennings, who regularly shows up to picket U.S. Rep. Allen West’s Treasure Coast events. The protesters were forced to leave with a trespass warning but were not arrested, said Pinellas County Sheriffs Office spokeswoman Marianne Pasha.

    Sad situation. The woman is a former Lake Worth City Commissioner. How were they allowed in?

    The non-working classless!!!!!!!

    I see Obamunist’s chimps are running around spreading their Stalinist hate.
    As for Crist…that idiot just makes swiping him so darn easy. Such a jerk.

  • Dagny

    This is sooo stupid and it shouldn’t be news at all. These folks were not threatening, or cursing or using violence. All they did was speak out. If they can be accosted and silenced by the police and interrogated and photographed, as benign and unthreatening as their comments were, then it can happen to anyone. We do not need more police and government interference, we need less! This is shameful.

    I thought Sen. Marco Rubio handled himself expertly. He’s certainly within his rights to take a shot at former Governor Crist, but Mr. Crist is to be commended for his thinking outside the ultra conservative box…and a refreshing alternative to our presently embarrassing and mean spirited governor…one of the two worst in America, only exceeded by Governor Jan Brewer of Arizona. I’m looking forward to great things from both Sen Rubio and former governor Charlie Crist…both are smart, eloquent, and refreshing–not afraid to call ‘em as they see ‘em! Even though I’m a registered Republican I ALWAYS vote for the best man in the contest.

      Another failure from the Crist camp. Leave your motals at the door. Smart your very wrong not smart at all…….

    • AFIraqVet

      Do you have a poster of Charlie’s ambulance chaser billboard taped to the ceiling above your bed?

    If these guys represent the working class, then they are either dumb, stupid or simply totally out of touch. Maybe they meant the union working class. Our antagonist president has done nothing to create jobs. He has bailed out the rich and union workers. I’m afraid we are witnessing the dumbing down of America. Every group has it’s own agenda with no consideration of what’s good for our countries best interest.

  • Carlos

    These are the losers who cry civility and tolerance but have none to speak of. You’ll rarely see Tea Party or other conservatives doing this stuff, someone’s gotta work to support this rabble.

    Sadly the neocon warmongers at this convention would rather silence any opposition with police state tactics than face the reality that they are not free, nor is this country. People have a right to have their grievances aired and addressed with dignity and respect. However our elected criminals do not do either and continue down their oath of selling out America to the highest bidder while lining their own pockets. The tragic part beyond that is the attendees at this convention are too stupid to realize they have lost not only their say in who runs this country but the country and it’s ideals of freedom have long past skipped through their fingers.

    • Sissy

      Move to Cuba. Maybe you will like the “freedom” there.

    The blind will lead the blind. Crist was “stroking” Obama before his loss to Rubio and it should be no surprise that his political ambitions come before the welfare of Floridians. Our country is on the brink of financial collapse and Rubio is doing his job by speaking out about the turnaround that needs to occur. The Republican ticket of Romney/Ryan is the team that can undo the harm that has taken place in Obama’s first term. A vote for Obama/Biden will insure the collapse of America and it’s standing in the world. Condi Rice and everyone who has been chosen to speak at the RNC knows what is a stake in this election. America stays strong or America declines. Decline will bring collapse and confiscation. A strong economy with a strong currency will bring prosperity. Good management is needed at this time. VOTE

    Craig is the usual lying libtard troll…and most likely he’s gay which explains his
    drooling fondness for Crist.

  • Fran

    Crist was outed when he went to work for the big money obama supporters, Morgan and Morgan. Marco isn’t telling us anything that wasn’t glaring already. There are places to protest in Tampa and it’s just rude to barge in to a sponsored breakfast and be asses. Hence their mascot.
