Rand Paul Posts Absurd Tweet About Obama Wiretapping Him. Gets Brutal Response

Kentucky Senator Rand Paul (R) loves the cameras. But he hasn’t accomplished anything of relevance in the senate and rarely says anything important that would merit media attention. So he’s mostly ignored by the media. In an effort to change that, Paul has issued an absurd demand.

The irrelevant GOP senator took to Twitter to announced that has asked the intelligence community and White House for any evidence that he was surveilled by former President Barack Obama.

“I have formally requested from the WH and the Intel Committees info on whether I was surveilled by Obama admin and or the Intel community!” Paul tweeted Friday.

The tweet appears to build off of President Trump’s claim, presented without evidence, that the Obama administration wiretapped Trump Tower during last year’s presidential race.

FBI Director James Comey has flatly denied any direct surveillance of the Trump campaign.

The NSA report does not, however, state that the NSA was unmasking names with the hope they would turn out to be specific people.

Paul has argued that incidental collection of Trump associates’ calls with foreign citizens who were themselves under surveillance is “a big deal.”

Sensing bullsh*t, Twitter users wasted no time to shut down Paul’s attempt to grab media attention:
