While speaking to a smattering of lobbyists and astrotruf-ees holding signs that read “Obama hates coal miners,” Senator Rand Paul decried “Hollywood liberals” and their American-made electric cars.
“Are any of you Hollywood liberals?” Paul asked to a riled-up crowd that answered with a resounding “No!”
“I can’t wait till their electric cars stop running,” he said to cheers. [...]
“They plug their car into the wall and they think that just because they can’t see the smoke coming from the smoke stack that somehow that electricity is perfectly clean because it came out of the wall,” Paul said on Tuesday.
Here’s the problem: Rand Paul drives a Toyota Prius.
He said so himself at the Values Voters Summit earlier this month.
But let’s get back to what’s really important, and that’s President Obama’s hatred of coal miners. Some of those in attendance at the rally also held signs that read “supporting coal supports freedom.”
Does the president hate freedom, too? Obviously. I bet he’d kick your dog and drink your milkshake if given half a chance.
