Rand Paul either wanted to slap the Republican Party or else he's just a craven jerk, or both. (I think we all know the answer to that.)
During an interview on MSNBC's Morning Joe, Baby Paul allowed that he might, just maybe, be able to support Donald Trump as the Republican nominee.
"Yeah, I think it would have to happen," Paul said Wednesday during an interview with MSNBC.
He cautioned, though, that it will be a long time before the nominee becomes clear. He also said the reason he would support Trump is that establishment Republicans did the same thing when he won the Republican nomination for Senate in Kentucky. "That's the way party politics work, is people come around and support the nominee. But we're a long way away from that," Paul said.
I don't think Rand Paul is as reluctant as he seems. Yes, he's probably bitter about being shoveled off the main debate stage, but he shares Trump's basic beliefs -- white nationalism, allegiance to billionaires, and more.
