Republican Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky does not suffer fools gladly.
He’s sick and tired of the liberal media lying and flooding the American people with propaganda and hate. He’s also one of the few who’s stood by President Trump and said that his concerns about the election aren’t just nonsense.
Paul recently made the comment that there is actually “a great deal of evidence of fraud” and that there should be a “thorough investigation.”
He did this on Sunday, facing off against former Clinton operative and ABC top anchor George Stephanopolous.
Partisan Democrats in the media think they can get away with just calling Republicans liars because they don’t agree with us. Watch me stand up to one here: https://t.co/nwmEoAJ5zt

‘There are Two Sides to Every Story’
Instead of sitting back and letting Stephanopoulous hit him with accusations and propaganda, Paul hit back at the liberal newsman.
“There are two sides to every story. George, you’re forgetting who you are. You’re forgetting who you are as a journalist if you think there’s only one side. You’re inserting yourself into the story to say I’m a liar because I want to look at election fraud and I want to look at secretaries of state who illegally changed the voter laws without the permission of their state legislatures. That is incontrovertible, it happened,” Paul said.
“You can’t just sweep it under the rug and say, oh, nothing to see here, and everybody is a liar and you’re a fool if you bring this up. You’re inserting yourself into the story. A journalist would hear both sides and there are two sides of a story.”
That’s exactly right. Except for the part about Stephanopolous being a journalist, since he’s more like a propagandist who might as well be still getting paid by the Democratic party.
Paul Calls Out Stephanopolous’ Bias
The Kentucky Senator wasn’t done yet, either. He told Stephanopolous to check his liberal privilege and try to be a bit more rational.
By “coming from the liberal side like you, you immediately say everything’s a lie, instead of saying there’s two sides to everything…you insert yourself in the middle … [saying] the absolute fact I’m saying is a lie,” Paul said.
As for specific examples? Paul had plenty.
“In Wisconsin, tens of thousands of absentee votes had only the name on it and no address. Historically those were thrown out, this time they weren’t. They made special accommodations. It’s a pandemic. They changed the law after the fact. That’s wrong, that’s unconstitutional.”
Paul said he is tired of liberals bullying and thinking they have the moral high ground.
“I won’t be cowed by liberals in the media who say there’s no evidence here and you’re a liar if you talk about election fraud. Let’s have an open debate this is a free country. There’s been no examination, thorough examination of all the states to see what problems we had and see if they could fix them.”
Paul said he certified the election because “I think it would be wrong for Congress to overturn that,” but “at the same time, I’m not willing to sit here and say, everybody on the Republican side is a liar and there’s no fraud. There were lots of problems and secretaries of state who illegally changed the law and that needs to be fixed and I’m going to work hard to fix it. The media today say all Republicans are liars. There are two sides to every story.”
Paul has also said that the impeachment process against Trump is a “charade” and “political theater.”
At least some Republicans still know how to stand up to the liberal media machine and its mouthpieces. Everyone in the GOP could take a lesson from Senator Paul and the way he handled Stephanopolous in his recent interview.
