    Rubio, Fox News try to explain Trump’s failures on infrastructure – By Steve Benen (MSNBC) / Sept 8, 2023

    After Joe Biden poked fun at Donald Trump’s infrastructure failure, Marco Rubio and Fox News mounted a defense. It didn’t go especially well.

    In a Labor Day speech in Philadelphia this week, President Joe Biden had a little fun talking about an area where he succeeded — and Donald Trump failed.

    “We used to have the best infrastructure in the world and then we fell to #13 in the world,” the Democrat said. “But guess what? The great real-estate builder — the last guy here, he didn’t build a damn thing. Under my predecessor, ‘infrastructure week’ became a punchline. On my watch, infrastructure is being a decade.”

    This apparently didn’t sit well with some of the Republican’s allies. Here, for example, is what Fox News’ Brian Kilmeade told Sen. Marco Rubio on the air yesterday:

    You know why [infrastructure legislation didn’t pass under Trump]? Because of the Russia stuff that they brought up at the time! Every time they roll out infrastructure, some other fake Russian lead would pop up and distract everybody.”
