While admitting the remark wasn’t constructive, Rand Paul defended Trump from charges of racism “like a boss.”
Cassandra Fairbanks is right! Rand Paul defended Trump and called out Lindsey Graham “like a boss” on Meet the Press. But he also reminded Chuck Todd and his audience that he had gone on trips to Haiti and to Central America to perform free cataract surgeries. Donald Trump was a “large financial backer” of both trips, long before either Paul or Trump were candidates for the Presidency.
Fairbanks writes at the Gateway Pundit, “Senator Rand Paul Defends Trump’s ‘Sh*thole’ Comment, BLASTS Hypocrite Lindsey Graham.”
Appearing on Meet the Press, Senator Paul was asked about why Trump has not apologized for the immigration remark that sent the mainstream media into a tearful tailspin.
“There are two different standards here, in 2013, Lindsey said the exact same thing that the president did except he used the word ‘hell hole,’” Senator Paul said. “‘You can’t have everybody coming up from every hell hole to here,’” he quoted his colleague as saying.
“Now everyone thinks Lindsey Graham is a great statesman because he put out this statement about American ideals and stuff,” Senator Paul added.
