    Rand Paul's mention of McCain draws boos

    A crowd of mostly high school students booed when Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) mentioned his colleague Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) during a speech on Tuesday night.
    "The reason we didn't repeal [ObamaCare] is because we have six or seven Republican senators who got cold feet," Paul said at the High School Leadership Summit hosted by conservative group Turning Point USA (TPUSA).
    "Let's just say, John McCain and a few others," Paul added, drawing boos from the audience.

    President Trump and other allies have repeatedly swiped at McCain's decisive vote last year against a scaled-down bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act, which helped torpedo GOP efforts to repeal former President Obama's signature health-care law.


    On Tuesday, the high school crowd also interrupted Paul's TPUSA speech with Trump's signature campaign rally chant "lock her up," which refers to jailing former Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton.
    "So, when the people say, 'Oh, what about the Republicans and Russians,' the only person we know who paid the Russians was Hillary Clinton," Paul said.
    The crowd chanted "lock her up" until Paul resumed speaking.

    Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) on Tuesday railed against former top intelligence officials who have been critical of the Trump administration during an event for mostly high-school-age conservatives.
    "We've got some bad apples that need to be dismissed from the swamp of Washington, sent on their way,” Paul said during a dinner hosted by Turning Point USA’s High School Leadership Summit. “I'm thinking maybe, how about John Brennan, No. 1."

    “Does anybody in their right mind think that John Brennan, who said that the president is treasonous, should have a security clearance?” the senator added, referring to the former CIA director under President Obama.


    “James Clapper came to the U.S. Senate in 2013, looked us in the eye, and lied under oath,” Paul said. “This is a felony. James Clapper should be in jail for lying to the government.”
    Paul also went after Comey and his decision to approve wiretapping of former Trump campaign aide Carter Page.
    “This has been spin and innuendo and politically driven witch hunt,” Paul said. He also said someone has to stand up and defend Trump.
    Paul’s comments on Comey led to chants of “Lock her up!," referring to Trump's former Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton.
    "So, when the people say oh, what about the Republicans and Russians, the only person we know who paid the Russians was Hillary Clinton!" Paul said.
    He added that too much energy has been consolidated within intelligence agencies and that he has urged Trump to look at systematic reform that instills checks and balances.
    “This is a real problem,” Paul said. “So this isn’t about the president being unhappy with his detractors, it’s about people falsely accusing the president of treason and about people who lied to Congress.”

    The crowd chanted "lock her up" . . .
    And as well John McCain has been very effective in blocking his records as a last-in-class Naval Academy "graduate" . . .
    everyone should remember 29Jul1967 before they stick their necks out too far out there for McCain . . .
