If, like me, you were wondering which of the 2016 GOP Presidential candidates would be the first to use a less-than-subtle sexist comment in order to take cheap shots at Hillary Clinton, we now know the answer. It’s Rand Paul.
Speaking at the First in the Nation Republican Leadership Summit in New Hampshire over the weekend, Paul decided to take the low road and offered this pithy commentary on the former Secretary of State:
“I’m starting to worry that when Hillary Clinton travels, there’s gonna need to be two planes – one for her and her entourage, and one for her baggage. I’m concerned that the plane with the baggage is really getting heavy and teetering.”
Wow, Rand, that’s just so darn funny and original that I’m sure you had the audience in stitches. Then again, that’s not much of an accomplishment with a room of Republicans who hate Clinton more than they do food stamps, black people, and the estate tax. As for me, I gotta level with ya: It’s pathetic. Much like you, Senator.
The junior Senator from Kentucky, who has about as much chance of being elected President as my pit bull does, was just getting warmed up. He then launched this steaming pile of horse manure:
“She’s just sort of above the rules? She doesn’t have to use a government server? It’s like, ‘Oh, well, my server was protected by the Secret Service.’ Does she think there’s, like, floppy disks in her basement?”
Actually, Rand, the only floppy thing here would be the sad excuse for a brain and sense of humor that you possess.
Paul’s comments did not go unnoticed or unremarked upon by allies of Ms. Clinton. Adrienne Watson, spokeswoman for the pro-Clinton Correct the Record said:
“Nobody knows baggage like Rand Paul, who is trying to figure out how to carry the baggage of his anti-woman stances and his ever-evolving flip flops. Rand Paul continues to talk about Hillary Clinton while Hillary continues to talk about the issues that matter to everyday people, like good-paying jobs and a healthy economy.”
I believe Rand Paul just got served! Deal with that, Senator!
