Republican Senator Marco Rubio of Florida, eager to win the support of Donald Trump fans in his state, recently sent out a fundraising email bragging about how he was "lucky enough" to be mentioned in one of Trump's first blog posts.
Twitter users were quick to make fun of Rubio, who once said Donald Trump wasn't competent enough to be President but now seems to worship the ground Trump walks on.

Somehow Rubio manages to become more and more pathetic as time goes on. https://t.co/TSfnalT35A— Tim Fullerton (@Tim Fullerton) 1620667231.0

Rubio's fealty to Trump was turned into a meme online.

Rubio, responding to the online criticism, posted a biblical passage trying to seem above the hate.
His post only served to inspire more mockery, however.
There's nothing sadder than a U.S. Senator sucking up to a man he doesn't even like to try and become popular.
This should be the REAL definition of “simping” https://t.co/fozgGfdxxm— Chicago Honey Bear (@Chicago Honey Bear) 1620693278.0

Rubio's embrace of Donald Trump may get him more campaign donations, but many people online felt he had to sacrifice his dignity to get them.

Perhaps Marco Rubio would have more success raising campaign finances if he wasn't constantly sucking up to a President who was removed from office after his first term.
