‘Called Chris Matthews, asked him if his refrigerator was running . . .’ Hilarious ‘Rubio crime spree’ hashtag!

The New York Times is being mocked mercilessly on social media for hyperventilating over a conservative lawmaker’s traffic violations.

The crack staff at The Times broke the hot story Friday about Republican presidential hopeful Marco Rubio’s supposed criminal past – amounting to a whopping four traffic citations since 1997. Rubio’s wife had another 13 infractions on her record.

Entire police dept. disbanded after councilwoman and her son were arrested.

While Hillary Clinton is neck-deep in scandals and can arguably count skirting criminal prosecution as her greatest accomplishment, The Times decided Rubio’s traffic record was news.

The Twitterverse has had field day ridiculing the story, using the hashtag #RubioCrimeSpree to hilarious effect.

Marco Rubio’s team even got in on the action.
