Peak gaslighting. Posting a video clearly showing that there was no “attack” while insisting Rand Paul was attacked. https://t.co/Tf2rqJAIsb

BREAKING REPORT: Rand Paul has called to SUBPOENA ANTIFA plane records, hotel records, all travel records & all funding….

The Little Prince showed up at Trump’s RNC rally speech, because that’s what passes for glitterati must-be-seen-at among the GOP ‘elite’, and he’s been milking the after-reaction from DC natives ever since.
Republicans with media access will claim that Rand Paul was attacked while everyone else with no media access will correctly see that a cop used a bike to push a protester and the protesters pushed back on the cop who wasn’t prepared to follow thru with his assault. https://t.co/80cpoDqmk6

I would be super worried for my safety if surrounded by an angry crowd, as likely intended. However, the video does not appear to support Rand Paul’s characterizations, let alone demands for FBI investigation and prosecution.

I have a feeling Senator Rand might feel differently tonight about anyone shooting at the government when they have a beef with it. pic.twitter.com/TiQrkzbR8H

FINALLY, he gets to really stretch himself on the important Wingnut Wurlitzer outlets, and not just his dad’s online-newsletter…

At long last, validation!
He didn’t say this about the Charlottesville horde that marched with swastikas and guns, preached white supremacy, beat people up, fired a gun into a crowd and murdered a woman with a car. But, sure, let’s lock up folks he doesn’t like for rude yelling. https://t.co/odxBwIl2kt

(If Rand follows the usual Bubble Conserva-Baby arc, he’ll be discovered with one or more sex workers — some caprine — and a small suitcase full of illicit substances by next January at the latest.)
