‘SELLOUT!’: Rand Paul Just Got Torched For Jumping On The Trump Train
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), who was once a heavy critic of Donald Trump, has now become a loyal supporter of the president, following Lindsey Graham’s footsteps.
On Wednesday, Paul decided to stand up for Trump and took to Twitter to call out Mitt Romney who wrote a scathing editorial denouncing Trump.
Paul accused Romney of virtue signaling and derided him as a “Big Government Republican.”
Like other Big Government Republicans who never liked Reagan, Mitt Romney wants to signal how virtuous he is in comparison to the President. Well, I’m most concerned and pleased with the actual conservative reform agenda @realDonaldTrump has achieved.

People on Twitter decided to call out the Republican senator for joining the Trump train.
I actually left the Republican Party after George W. Bush because it has changed so drastically. Day is night, up is down, right is wrong and now the GOP is aiding and abetting a traitor. That’s why I am not a Republican.

Who knew Rand Paul, trained physician, US Senator,
would audition to be Trump's lap poodle?

What's he got on you, Senator, that has you singing a buffoon's praises all day long? The idea that Trump is a conservative is utter nonsense. You seen the deficit? The trade wars?

"Donald Trump is a delusional narcissist and an orange-faced windbag."
"A speck of dirt is way more qualified to be president."
-Both Rand Paul, who today is leaping to Trump's defense when Romney has the gall to question Trump's character

Rand Paul is the thirstiest little weasel in D.C., and that’s saying something. Any press that actually shows up should be ashamed of themselves.

Rand Paul is a sellout. He, as a libertarian, sb highly critical of Trump’s policies especially Trump’s deviation from free market principles. Paul et al “conservatives” who no longer follow free market principles instead they are Nationalists & ok with mkt intervention! What?

Almost makes you feel as if Rand Paul could get caught up in one of these investigations.
