Marco Rubio blasted the media for its hypocritical condemnation of his recent tone in the election campaign.
Once the Republican candidate turned up the attacks on rival Donald Trump, it seemed the media unleashed on Rubio’s mudslinging despite ignoring the same tone coming from Trump for months.
Rubio shot back on Monday by slamming the media and the “climate” of the 2016 election campaign.
“What a sad indictment” of political climate says Marco Rubio — appearing upset that media is now covering him because he insulted Trump

Rubio blitzing the press in GA: I’m insulting Trump because it’s the only thing you guys pay attention to. I have real plans, too.

Social media generally applauded Rubio’s jabs and blamed the media for creating the environment.
media going after rubio for lowering the discourse is like the ref not seeing the initial penalty and throwing a flag for the retaliation

Rubio is right. The media ignored his ideas for months and promoted a complete douchebag. https://t.co/92xW4mIC1W

Journalists shaking their heads at the tone of this race have only themselves to blame. https://t.co/W2nF37WOF4
