It’s not only Donald Trump who is fighting back against the comments that Pope Francis made on Thursday, now candidates Marco Rubio and Jeb Bush are coming to Trump’s aid. Bush responded to the controversy by saying that the Pope has no right to comment on Trump’s religious reverence, while Rubio remarked that the U.S. has a right to control who enters the country.

You sure that’s what side you wanna take on this, fellas?
