Watch: Rand Paul Gets Defensive After Wolf Blitzer Demands Answers About Trump-Putin Meeting
On Monday, after CNN’s Wolf Blitzer pushed Republican Senator Rand Paul to give him answers over Donald Trump’s meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, the Republican lawmaker failed to give him a solid answer and instead attacked the CNN host.
Paul pushed the narrative that people just “hate” Trump and that’s why they’re criticizing him over the summit.
“It’s not a matter of hating President Trump,” Blitzer said. “It’s a matter of what he did today, what he said today. He met with a President Putin as you know more than two hours, unlike other presidents. Especially on foreign soil, he blamed the United States for the bad relationship with Russia. He declined to back his own intelligence community for its assessment. He declined to support the U.S.”
Paul tried to shy away from the question by criticizing Blitzer’s job performance.
“You’re usually better than this, Wolf. You need to allow the respondent to respond,” Paul said.
“Go ahead,” Blitzer responded.
“I’m concerned about the use of bias against President Trump and absolutely with the president on this. The intelligence community was full of bias people, including Peter Strzok, McCabe and dozens of others,” Paul said.
