With his presidential campaign aborted and his Senate term expiring early next year, Sen. Marco Rubio took to Twitter on Monday to tell us how he really feels.  

Typically, campaign Twitter accounts are managed by a politician’s social media or communications staff, with personal tweets from the politician signed with his or her initials. But now that he’s untethered by obligations to run for re-election or president, Rubio first complained about airline seating.

But then he went off about an overzealous media speculating about him and using anonymous sources.

Rubio then reaffirmed what he has said about his political future before making a few sarcastic tweets to close out the night.
