Senator Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) went on a pretty entertaining rant against Donald Trump over the weekend at a Berkeley County Republican Party breakfast in South Carolina.Video below:
I can’t imagine Donald Trump even knowing what a Tea Party is. How can we have Tea Party conservatives in our country think that somehow Donald Trump is going to help us? He’s the consummate insider. What’s wrong with Washington? People buying and selling politicians. What’s Donald Trump known for? Buying and selling politicians.
What did he say to the Wall Street Journal the other day? He said, ‘well, I give them money so they’ll do the hell what I tell them to do.’ Really? Is that what we want? Is that part of what represents the Tea Party? Is that what represents conservatives?
My goodness, he’s been on both sides of every issue. Where is our sense? Where is our common sense? This is the guy who’s been pro-choice before he was pro-life. This is the guy who was liberal before he was conservative. This is the guy who was a Democrat before he was a Republican before he was a Democrat before he was an Independent before he was back to being a Republican. I have no idea if he’s conservative. We are kidding ourselves to even consider someone who is such a chameleon that he’s been on every side of every issue. Wake up America! Wake up Republicans!
Alright, I’m a little bit annoyed, alright? Here’s the thing: does anybody remember when Ross Perot gave us Bill Clinton? Are you ready for Donald Trump to give us Hillary Clinton? We want somebody that will stand up to the Washington Machine. We want someone who will speak their piece. We want somebody who’s not bound by political correctness.
But we also want them to make sense, don’t we? Do we want border security? Yes. Do we want the ability to protect our country from just unlawful, you know, mass migration? Yes. But do we want someone who has maybe something a little more intelligent to say than that the Mexicans are going to pay for it?
My goodness. Is anybody listening to what’s being said? We have a 19 trillion dollar debt, what are we going to do? ‘The Mexicans will pay for it.’ That doesn’t make any sense! You know, what we have to do is talk about how we’re going to make the country better again. But we make our country better again by paying attention to the Constitution. The Constitution wasn’t to restrain you, it was to restrain your government.
Looks like the gloves are off in the GOP primary. And it’s only August.
