Getting to speak unfiltered is one of the perks of not running for political office. Senator Marco Rubio is definitely taking advantage of this perk.

Rubio posted an epic Twitter rant against The Washington Post on Monday night, after the paper ran a story on Rubio’s political future based entirely on unverified claims made by unnamed people.

Chris Cillizza at The Washington Post wrote:

* Marco Rubio: Rubio, according to conversations I’ve had with people close to him, is sort of betwixt and between when it comes to his next move. Despite some urging to reconsider his plans to retire from the Senate, Rubio seems likely to stand firm and head out in November. What’s next is the harder nut to crack. Rubio has said he isn’t interested in running for governor in 2020 and would have a far-from-clear primary field since state Agricultural Commissioner Adam Putnam has been planning a gubernatorial bid for much of the past decade. Rubio could stay in the private sector and make money — he has four young children — but the danger there is by the time 2018 rolls around he is out of the daily, weekly or even monthly conversation happening within the GOP. Still, Rubio, like Cruz, is young enough not to need to take a risk like signing on with Trump.

Rubio was not amused. And so, the tweets began:

Rubio has a point- lots of people who should not be talking to the media, do it anyway because they want to seem “in the loop.”

Cillizza took the critique of his story in stride, sending out a few tweets himself:
