Just when we thought that Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) was going out on a limb and telling the world that Pitbull ain't no Tupac or Eminem (TRUTH!), a story by NBC Latino published today just proves that Rubio is just another politician who likes to offer music critiques and delete tweets. Now the Miami native is defending his fellow 305 neighbor.

Here is what the NBC piece says:

While it’s clear that Rubio would choose Tupac over Pitbull any day of the week, even going as far as to say that Tupac’s “Killuminati” is one of his top three rap songs of all time, some took his comments to mean that he doesn’t like Pitbull’s music. Rubio felt the need to take to Twitter to clarify his remarks.

The story also said that Rubio felt he had to delete the following tweet:

We know that as a public figure, deleting tweets is frowned upon, but maybe Rubio felt that he had enough of being a music critic. As for us? We really thought we had something in common, Senator. Our distaste for Pitbull could have been the first step in bipartisan cooperation. Sigh.
