Rubio has been accusing Democrats of attempting to “steal” elections in Florida as the races for governor and Senate undergo recounts.
In one of those accusations on Twitter, Rubio tried to compare the recount situation to a NFL game.
“Imagine if NFL team was trailing 24-22 but in final seconds hits a 3 pt kick to win,” he wrote. “Then AFTER game lawyers for losing team get a judge to order rules changed so that last second field goals are only 1 point.”

I mean most people know what a field goal is. But mostly it’s the baseless accusations that you are making that undermine faith in democracy that people don’t like. https://t.co/ndAeF8dwxo
