VIDEO: Rand Paul BLASTS ‘Fake Conservative’ Donald Trump: ‘He Could Really Be a Liberal’

The knives were out on Sunday morning with 2016 Republican presidential candidate, Senator Rand Paul being the first out of the gate to attack current GOP frontrunner Donald Trump on FOX News Sunday with Chris Wallace.

Referring to Trump’s dust-up with FOX News GOP debate co-moderator Megyn Kelly, a kerfuffle which included Trump saying that Kelly was so angry in her questioning that, “You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever,” Paul said that, “I don’t think we should reward vulgarity and I don’t think vulgarity equates to insight.”

“Because you can shout and call people names and call someone ‘stupid; or call someone ‘fat’ is that really what we’re going to make the decision on for who’s going to be our nominee?” Paul asked.

Paul went on to point out Trump’s prior support for liberal policies makes his believability on issues questionable at best, describing him as a “fake conservative” who appears to be only interested in self-promotion:

“I came out of the Tea Party movement. And part of the Tea Party movement was that we were upset with fake conservatives and Republicans who truly weren’t conservative. Republicans who were for Obamacare and Republicans who were for the bank bailouts — well, that’s Donald Trump.

He’s been for all these liberal policies. And now because he can stand up and say vulgar things and he’s a ‘truth teller’ — well, the truth is, what is he for? I have no idea whether he’s conservative. He really could be a liberal for all I’m concerned.

I have no idea what his real philosophy is other than he is for promoting himself.”
