Rand Paul: Why Are We Doing a “Dumbass Live Stream” of My Dumbass Campaign?

Not only is Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) not in favor of live-streaming his doomed presidential campaign, it's not entirely clear to me if he understands how live-streaming works.

Rand son of Ron apparently answered questions based on Google searches for his campaign and one question he responded to was whether or not he is, in fact, still running for president.

Rand offered a colorful response.

"I don't know. I wouldn't be doing this dumbass live streaming if I weren't. So yes, I still am running for president, get over it." [...]

"This is not live, we can't edit this right?"

Yes. "Live-streaming" is live. No, you cannot edit it.

When asked why his campaign decided to live-stream a full day on the campaign trail, Rand said he had no idea.

"I've been saying, 'I don't want to do this,' I don't want to do this and now we're doing this," he said.

I hasten to remind you that Rand agreed to pay the Republican Party of Kentucky $500,000 so he could continue to run for president and run for reelection as a senator at the same time. Was that money well spent?

I laughed far more than one probably should at this.

  • Rand began his campaign pitching himself as the ‘internet technology candidate,’ due to his early-adoption of internet technology, such as SnapChat, and his concern-trolling over internet privacy. Then, he got busted for bad copy-paste jobs from Wikipedia, he campaigned in opposition to ‘Net neutrality, and now his internet technology incompetence is made ever more clear with these dumb-ass comments about his dumb-ass campaign.

    I hate to say that Donald Trump is right, but he’s right: Rand Paul is a loser.

    When someone asks if you’re still running for president that should tell you everything you need to know about your campaign. I wouldn’t be surprised if other GOP candidates are also being asked the same thing.

    So, you can’t control your campaign staff and put your foot down when you don’t want to do something and you think we should still trust you to be the leader of the free world?

    Rand Paul’s answer to the question about whether he’s still running (that’s only number three on Google?) was downright testy. Okay, sure, cranky (in all meanings of the word) seems to be Paul’s default, but that response was awfully defensive. Maybe the pressures of a long political campaign are starting to take their toll.

    Or maybe Rand Paul is not a serious person.

    is there an echo in the darkness?

    Live streaming is not inherently “dumbass”. But Paul’s right that his is.

    What a buffoon. Rand son of Ron is not a serious person and not a serious candidate.
