Senator Marco Rubio Posts John Lewis Tribute, But Uses Photo of Elijah Cummings

Marco Rubio, the senior senator from Florida, made a huge mistake when he took to Twitter to pay tribute to the late John Lewis.

Congressman Lewis was one of the most prominent leaders in the civil rights movement and he sadly lost his battle to cancer this week.

Rubio posted a tribute to Lewis, but he included a photo of him with the late civil rights legend Elijah Cummings instead.

“It was an honor to know & be blessed with the opportunity to serve in Congress with John Lewis a genuine & historic American hero. May the Lord grant him eternal peace,” Rubio captioned the post.

The tweet was finally deleted around 25 minutes after it was published, but it had already gone viral and you can see a screencap here. At the time of this posting, Rubio‘s Twitter profile photo is still the picture of him and Cummings.

When Ben Carson was introduced, he missed his cue to walk onto the stage and caused a roadblock for the other candidates, including Donald Trump.

There was a mass of confusion while some candidates joined the crowd standing in the entrance way while others zoomed past and headed straight for the podium.
