Rand Paul has taken to impersonating Donald Trump, but he’s got a lot to learn before he gets to Anderson Cooper levels of Trumping.
At a campaign event on Wednesday, Paul mocked the Donald, tossing out one of his favorite lines.
“My favorite is, ‘You know the reason I tell women they’re ugly is cause I’m so good looking,'” the Kentucky Senator said in his best Trump voice.
His voice was too soft to echo the full Donald, but he’s got plenty of time on the campaign trail to work on it.
In response to Paul’s mockery and a recent attack ad questioning Trump’s past liberal positions and support for Democrats, the mogul and reality TV star issued a lengthy statement (cut down for editing purposes):
Unless you are a piece of unyielding granite, over the years positions evolve as they have in my case. Ronald Reagan, as an example, was a Democrat with a liberal bent who became a conservative Republican.
Recently, Rand Paul called me and asked me to play golf. I easily beat him on the golf course and will even more easily beat him now, in the world in the politics.
Senator Paul does not mention that after trouncing him in golf I made a significant donation to the eye center with which he is affiliated.
I feel sorry for the great people of Kentucky who are being used as a back up to Senator Paul’s hopeless attempt to become President of the United States— weak on the military, Israel, the Vets and many other issues. Senator Paul has no chance of wining the nomination and the people of Kentucky should not allow him the privilege of remaining their Senator. Rand should save his lobbyist’s and special interest money and just go quietly home.
Rand’s campaign is a total mess, and as a matter of fact, I didn’t know he had anybody left in his campaign to make commercials who are not currently under indictment!
The libertarian favorite and Trump have been feuding for weeks, highlighted at the first GOP debate when Paul went into attack mode at the real estate mogul right out of the gate, criticizing him for donating to Democrats for years.
We anxiously await the leaked video footage of the Donald whipping Paul on the golf course.
