After video hit social media showing Kurds throwing tomatoes at U.S. troops as they left a town in northern Syria, Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) took it upon himself to lecture the Kurdish people on how they should feel about America.
In a tweet, Rubio said, "I understand the anger of Kurds who face threats & attacks from Turkish forces."
"But U.S. troops don’t deserve insults,they deserve gratitude & praise," he added. "They didn’t make the decision to leave,they were ordered to. And they risked their lives far away from their homes & families."
