Thank God for Rand Paul! Every time I get depressed about the state of the Republican Party, I’m going to watch this clip of Sen. Paul standing up to the bully George Stephanopoulos.
The ABC News host got a lesson in fair play from Sen. Paul today. Stephanopoulos asked Paul about the 2020 election, but he didn’t get the answer he wanted. Instead of bowing to Stephanopoulos “threshold question” that the election was not stolen in 2020, Paul recited the known facts about the election and said there are two sides to every story.
Not on this one, Stephanopoulos said. Paul pointed out that if Stephanopoulos were a real journalist, then he would have two guests on to argue both sides. Instead, Stephanopoulos just called Paul a liar.
“Seventy-five percent of Republicans agree with you because they were fed a big lie by President Trump and his supporters that the election was stolen.”
Hell no, Paul is not a liar. He just doesn’t want to repeat the 2+2=5 formula that Big Brother wants to hear. Paul is asking for a Socratic investigation of the election irregularities instead of just being told to stop looking. What are the Democrats afraid of?
You’ve got to listen to this interview. Paul provides a roadmap for all Republicans who want to stand up to the Fake News bullies. He also makes me put him in my Top 3 for who to support for President in 2024. Paul pointed out that the courts never actually looked at the merits of the case, but rejected it over lack of standing. He also pointed out that Paul is not a journalist, but rather an advocate.
“George, where you make a mistake is people coming from the liberal side like you, you immediately say everything’s a lie instead of saying there’s two sides to everything. Historically what would happen if I said In thought there were fraud, you would interview someone who said there wasn’t. Now you insert yourself in the middle and say the absolute fact is everything I’m saying is a lie.”
Good job, senator!
