Despite WaPo (and herself) falsely labeling her as a "conservative," she is a liberal known for her contempt for various conservative and Christian principles such as traditional marriage, as well as evangelical Christians themselves. Rubin has also been vehemently contemptuous of conservative figures such as Jim DeMint, Ted Cruz, and Donald Trump, even after the latter was elected U.S. President. In addition, she hates Fox News Channel for its conservative aspects, but apparently has no problem with the left-wing mainstream media. (see Token conservative for sources and a more detailed explanation). Rubin is also a staunch supporter of the abortion-performing organization Planned Parenthood and has called for high-ranking military veterans to be banned from serving in The White House.
In February 2018, Rubin, along with fellow WaPo token "conservative" Max Boot, finally admitted she was not actually a conservative. In October 2018, several real conservatives asked WaPo to stop describing Rubin as "conservative" because of her left-wing policies on every political issue.
