Rand Paul: Trump is an insider pretending to be an outsider
by THE HILL | BRADFORD RICHARDSON
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) believes voters should not be fooled by Donald Trump’s schtick as a Washington outsider and truth-teller.
“One of the things that’s going on in the race that I think is puzzling is that Trump’s trying to run as an outsider and a truth teller, when in reality he’s the consummate insider who buys and sells politicians like he buys and sells other commodities,” Paul told Buzzfeed.
“So we’ve got this guy and it’s like, what is he famous for?” Paul said. “He’s famous for buying politicians.”
Paul also reportedly described Trump several times as “the guy with the big hair” and questioned his conservative principles in campaign speeches over the weekend.
“I can’t imagine Donald Trump even knows what a tea party is,” Paul said, referring to the grassroots conservative movement, according to the Washington Post.
