Rand Paul does an­nual tra­di­tion of air­ing Fes­tivus griev­ances

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS - — Jes­sica Chas­mar

Sen. Rand Paul zinged Pres­i­den­t­elect Don­ald Trump and the in­com­ing ad­min­is­tra­tion in his an­nual Fes­tivus “air­ing of griev­ances” in­spired by the hit ’90s sit­com “Se­in­feld” and the fic­tional “hol­i­day.”

“New ad­min­is­tra­tion is lookin good,” the Ken­tucky Repub­li­can tweeted Fri­day morn­ing. “Haven’t seen this many bil­lion­aires in 1 place since I staked out Bilder­bergs w/ Alex Jones. Good times.”

“@pe­terthiel is ad­vis­ing the Pres­i­dent Elect. That’s great. But his plan 2 make the Statue of Lib­erty into a dig­i­tal stop sign is a bit much,” he joked.

Mr. Paul, a for­mer Repub­li­can pres­i­den­tial can­di­date, ear­lier this month strongly crit­i­cized for­mer Am­bas­sador to the United Na­tions John R. Bolton and vowed to block his nom­i­na­tion while he was re­port­edly be­ing con­sid­ered as Mr. Trump’s sec­re­tary of state.

“I know I’ve said a lot about @Am­bJohnBolton so you’re prob­a­bly ex­pect­ing me 2 say some­thing nice for the hol­i­days. Nope,” Mr. Paul wrote, ad­ding the hash­tag “#AiringofGrievances.”

Mr. Paul also poked fun at for­mer Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who agreed to be Mr. Trump’s sec­re­tary of en­ergy.

“My fa­vorite Cabi­net pick is what’s his name, umm it’s that guy who wanted to elim­i­nate the Dept. of @EN­ERGY. Hang on I’ll think of it …” the sen­a­tor tweeted.
