Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) was not having any of Senator John McCain’s (R-AZ) attacks on President Trump from earlier in the week. The Kentucky firebrand took to ABC News to excoriate McCain for his silly comments about Trump’s presidency and to explain why Trump is a far-sight superior to McCain as our President.

Paul went straight for the jugular when he unmasked McCain as the truly reckless leader, not Trump.

“I would say John McCain’s been wrong on just about everything over the last four decades. He advocated for the Iraq War, which I think destabilized the Middle East. If you look at the map, there’s probably at least six different countries where John McCain has advocated for us having boots on the ground…

Everything that he says about the president is colored by his own personal dispute he’s got running with President Trump, and it should be taken with a grain of salt, because John McCain’s the guy who’s advocated for war everywhere. He would bankrupt the nation. We’re very lucky John McCain’s not in charge, because I think we’d be in perpetual war.”

Ouch! Got ‘em!

Also on Sunday Rand Paul also told Fox & Friends that President Trump’s presidency has been a resounding success thus far. In fact, Congress has done more work in the past 4 weeks than in the previous 6 years!

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
