Sen. Marco Rubio's post featured a gruesome capture of the violent murder of former Libyan leader, Muammar Gaddafi.

A morbid and scantily veiled death threat directed at Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro by U.S. Congressman Marco Rubio has triggered harsh criticism from across the web Sunday.

Floridian Sen. Rubio posted a cryptic Twitter post Sunday afternoon, featuring two photos of former Libyan leader, Muammar Gaddafi- one, a smiling portrait; the other, a gruesome capture of the president’s savage and violent death after a U.S. militarized intervention in 2011.

Posted without a description, context, or explanation, Rubio’s message was quickly taken as a threat against Maduro, who the senator has openly criticized on numerous occasions while endorsing a U.S. militarized intervention in the South American nation in spite of international condemnation.

The reaction online was immediate, with Twitter users rejecting President Donald Trump’s right-hand man and his message as “ignorant,” "sadist," and “bloodthirsty.”
