Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) took great umbrage at a Fox News contributor who used his own words against him, so he lashed out on Twitter even though doing so only served to make matters worse for him.

Sara A. Carter, a frequent guest on Sean Hannity’s show, noted on her personal blog that in July Rubio said a FISA warrant which called for surveillance of Trump campaign adviser Carter Page had been appropriate and and didn’t qualify as “spying” by the FBI on the Trump campaign, a charge frequently made by President Donald Trump and many of his defenders.

Here’s what Carter posted on her blog:

Republican Sen. Marco Rubio tells CNN’s Jake Tapper that he doesn’t think investigators “did anything wrong” when they applied for surveillance on Carter Page.

‘I don’t think they [FBI] did anything wrong, I think they went to the court, they got the judges to approve it, they laid out all the information…and there was a lot of reasons…unrelated to the dossier for why they looked at Carter Page” said Sen. Marco Rubio.

That led an enraged Rubio to fire back on Twitter:

Informational warfare? Trump lies and spins conspiracy theories on social media each and every day. But suddenly Rubio has a problem with someone quoting him?

Here’s some advice for Marco Rubio: There’s an old saying you might be familiar with and should heed: Better to be remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt.
