Former Republican Candidate and Senator from Florida Marco Rubio fired off 11 tweets mocking a Washington Post article about Rubio’s chances of being Donald Trump’s Vice President late Monday night May 17. 

Linking to the article “5 people who are never going to be Donald Trump’s vice president,” Rubio wrote “Funny to read about unnamed “people close” to me who claim to know my thinking on future plans. They just make it up.”

He then wrote ten more tweets, linking to another Washington Post article “Rubio gives up on Senate: ‘He hates it,” mocking some of the rationale and sources given in the article:

“Flashback to another article quoting a ‘longtime friend’ saying I ‘hate’ Senate,” Rubio wrote on Twitter. “Words I have NEVER said to anyone.”

He reiterated that he would be a “private citizen” in January:

Then he mocked the articles with hypothetical leads to his gym routines:

Rubio finished off the tweetstorm saying “that’s enough for one night.”

The critique of the Washington Post articles by Rubio comes only one day after Donald Trump repeatedly attacked the New York Times for being “false, malicious & libelous” in their article “Crossing the Line: How Donald Trump Behaved With Women in Private.”

The main source of the article, an ex-girlfriend of Donald Trump, Rowanne Brewer Lane, disputed the way the article characterized her relationship with the Republican nominee.
