Senator Rand Paul took to Twitter just before Christmas and ranted in a bizarre tweetstorm about his love for “President” Donald Trump and about Festivus and being able to say “Merry Christmas” again. Someone should check on Paul, as it was a most bizarre outburst.
Rand Paul began his thread with a picture of George Costanza from Seinfeld which stated, “So we are back with more #Festivus goodness.” Paul then listed via tweets a number of grievances he had with wasted spending, then posted a photo of himself on a beach with a wooden teepee with the header, “I came to say Happy #Festivus to my friend Elizabeth Warren. Cant find her.”
Paul then attacked the “foreign policy establishment” of both parties in Washington, D.C., attacking Senator Lindsay Graham, Senator Ted Cruz, and others. He ended by bizarrely turning to the ability in this country to be able to say “Merry Christmas” again, and laid tribute at Trump’s feet for such a change in our ability, tweeting:“So everyone enjoy your feats of strength today. Air your grievances here or in your home. But remember, thanks to Donald Trump we are ALL saying Merry Christmas this year — so repeat after me: MERRY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY HOLIDAYS to everyone even the haters and losers.”
Rand Paul also praised John Bolton, a war hawk by every definition, whom Paul suggests will end all wars and lead us to disengagement. He topped it all off with a bizarre rendition of a border wall with spikes with a giant cat on one side with laser beam eyes. This has become a Rand Paul tradition, channeling his grievances, but his apparent loss of any semblance of sanity is dangerous, to say the least. His posts this Festivus are delusional, but perhaps also remind us of just how aligned with Donald Trump he’s become in every way.
