Marco Rubio knocks NBC News story for focusing on politics

Marco Rubio has gotten recent media attention for his post-presidential moves, which include a heavy focus on Florida. Still, Rubio wasn't happy with the way NBC News treated his visit to Jacksonville.

Rubio fired off a number of tweets in response.

"@TODAYshow could have done a real service doing story about abuses in public housing and HUD. Instead focus on political speculation"

"Owner of #EurekaGardens has similar slum like conditions in projects across multiple states.But @TODAYshow wants to talk about polls & Trump"

"Invited @TODAYshow b/c told us they would focus on terrible living conditions at HUD projects like this.They turned into political piece."
