Rand Paul does annual tradition of airing Festivus grievances
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.
