Speaking that way to someone is just idiotic.
Do you feel insulted right now?
Even though I was referring to the way you were speaking to him, i.e. your actions and not necessarily your character, the general impression will still be that I just called you an idiot.
It's the same way with what you said. The general impression when you say he was foolish is that you called him a fool.
