Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) posted a video of himself on his social media accounts talking about Kanye West’s new album. And it was pretty odd.

“I don’t know anything about Kanye West’s new album other than I guess he premiered it out there in Wyoming and invited a bunch of people,” Rubio said.

“He’s an interesting guy. Actually, he’s in the middle of that Pusha T and Drake fight,” he added, stumbling over his words.

Stammering again, he says, “Drake comes from, from … that whole thing is so complicated.”

If this reads in a very choppy way, that is because Rubio talked that way in the video.

“Bottom line is, I haven’t heard it, but I know it’s out there,” he said. “And it’s the first work I think he’s done solo in a couple of years. He’s been writing and doing other stuff. I look forward to hearing it at some point. Maybe they have it down at the White House—they got an advance copy.”

I am not sure why he posted this video in the first place. It could have been a question posed from someone during a Facebook Live session. But even if that was the case, why would Rubio upload such a stammering video of himself looking clueless about hip-hop?

Honestly, I am surprised he knows who Pusha T is, but that is another story.

Anyway, Twitter had fun with it:
