    Rand Paul: Trump is an ‘orange-faced windbag’


    I laughed. He was on a roll.

    Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) called Donald Trump an “orange-faced windbag” on Monday, the latest insult in his feud with the GOP presidential front-runner.

    “Donald Trump is a delusional narcissist and an orange-faced windbag,” he said on Comedy Central’s “The Nightly Show.”

    “Have you ever had a speck of dirt fly into your eye?” he continued, mocking Trump."[It is] annoying, irritating and might even make you cry.
    “If the dirt doesn’t go away, it will keep scratching your cornea until eventually it blinds you with all its filth. A speck of dirt is way more qualified to be president.”

    Paul also likened Trump to Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels.

    “I’m not sure I would say Trump is Hitler – Goebbels maybe,” he said.

    Asked if he would kill an infant Hitler or Trump if he went back in time, Paul said he wasn't "seriously" comparing Trump to either Nazi.

    "I have compared him to Gollum from ‘Lord of the Rings,’” he jokingly added, referring to a monster from the fantasy series.

    Paul also took a shot at Dem contender Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), saying young people who supported him would end up disappointed.

    “If you want Santa Claus and something free, then [you are] going towards Bernie,” he said.

    “I think there are a lot of people out there who are more realistic about what they want. If you understand that really nothing in life is free, but you want freedom and opportunity, then [you are] coming our way.”

    Paul urged libertarian-leaning voters to back him regardless of their party affiliation.

    “On the right there are people who believe in economic liberty,” he said. "On the left, there are people who believe in personal liberty.

    “What we are trying to do is join liberty together and say across the board, government ought to stay out of your life."

    “I don’t think that there will be any curtailing of Donald Trump as president,” he said. "He controls the media, he controls the sentiment [and] he controls everybody. He’s the one who will resort to executive orders more so than [President] Obama ever used them." - Ron Paul

    Trump probably took too much canthaxanthin and it takes time for it to wear off.

    It was my impression that Rand was reading a script for that. All of the media is reporting it as Rand's words.

    yay voting party lines rather than principle.

    Hey no worries that just means that Rand's message can possibly be shaped to fight the narrative of party line voting it's the first thing that Bernie Sanders results to when they bring up Rand. He needs to destroy the partisan talking points just the way he does with the polling talking points.

    After watching the video, it did seem that way. Dang it, I think it's high time someone sank to Trumps level and talked to him in language he (and his supporters) can understand. But then again, I'm kind of petty that way.

    The whole shtick was that Rand was now a "reporter" for the show. So like the rest of the show, he was reading from a script for that part.

    It may have been unscripted later, but the more inflammatory parts that were scripted are also the ones that the rest of the media is using. Fox News had the quote about "speck of dirt" earlier today. IMHO, it was all an effort to make Rand look bad.

    He's not wrong and a lot of people agree.

    Awkward segment though for sure. I thought the host was going to jump on the desk at the end demanding that Rand call Cruz a dick. Media will take every opportunity to try to get him into a gotcha. Rand played it well.

    The entire internet is the domain of paid shills and bots. If you don't know this by now....

    Israel, under control of the Crown and, ultimately, the Vatican, own the USA. If you don't know this by now....

    Talk to people about liberty. You won't find it on websites, you won't find it in politicians.

    But now you can't talk to people because of "social distancing"....brought to you by shills and politicians.
