Marco Rubio’s Twitter account started posted a string of tweets this morning that just disturbed the hell out out reporters.
Marco Rubio is tweeting out Bible verses this morning. This is oddly terrifying. https://t.co/tBZLk1on4E

And from the Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin (their “conservative” columnist):

My God. A man of faith started quoting the Bible. Does he not know that the Bible is a very triggering book, filled with hate and vile, right-wing rhetoric? I, for one, hope a staffer informs Senator Rubio that such things are considered problematic. This isn’t proper decorum for a person in 2017.
If these people are terrified because they think this is somehow prophetic that we’re all about to die because of Donald Trump, well, that’s a different story. I hope Rubio starts tweeting out verses from Revelation. That would be awesome.
We need more awesome.
