Marco Rubio goes off on Twitter over 'unnamed sources' and now a parody account is born

Now that his presidential campaign is over, U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio has a lot more time to do work in the Senate, but more importantly, he can use the free hours in his day to go on you-don't-know-me-like-that rants on Twitter. 

Florida's senator sent out a series of tweets about unnamed sources speculating to the press on whether Rubio will decide to become presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump's vice president. He's been pretty clear about not being interested in the position. 
Rubio's tirade inspired the hilarious parody account, @RubioSources, which claims to be "a community made up of @marcorubio's cousins, staffers and other supposed sources he's never actually met."
