Senator Rand Paul utterly unloaded on his Congressional colleagues Thursday, saying “Trump Derangement Syndrome” has “officially” taken over the Senate and forced his fellow legislators to prefer “war to diplomacy.”
Paul was speaking on the Senate floor when he slammed those critical of Trump’s historic Helsinki Summit, saying “hatred for the President is so intense that partisans would rather risk war than give diplomacy a chance.”
“Trump Derangement Syndrome has officially come to the Senate. The hatred for the President is so intense that partisans would rather risk war than give diplomacy a chance,” said Paul.
“Does anyone remember that Ronald Reagan sat down with Gorbachev and we lessened the nuclear tensions? We need to have those openings. Nobody is saying or excusing Russia’s meddling in our elections,” he added.

RAND PAUL: 'The Only Person We Know Colluded with Russia was HILLARY CLINTON'
Senator Rand Paul continued to call-out the media’s blatant double-standard surrounding allegations of Russian-collusion this week, saying the “only person” we actually know “colluded with Russia” was former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Paul was speaking with Fox News when he blasted the left’s full-fledged obsession with Vladimir Putin Tuesday, adding that Robert Mueller’s year-long investigation has so far yielded no evidence the Trump campaign worked with the Kremlin.
“The president sees the Mueller investigation. He sees all these accusations from partisan Democrats, Hillary Clinton, saying ‘Oh, he colluded with the Russians,” Rand said. “The only people who we actually know colluded with the Russians were Hillary Clinton who paid a British agent who paid Russians for information for the dossier.”

RAND PAUL: Helsinki Summit Critics Motivated by ‘DISLIKE of the PRESIDENT’
Senator Rand Paul slammed the “pro-war” critics of President Trump’s historic Helsinki summit with Vladimir Putin Monday; saying his GOP detractors were motivated by their “dislike of the President.”
The Senator praised the President’s face-to-face meeting with the Russian leader just hours after Trump met with Putin in the Finnish capital, saying “small steps” towards a thaw in relations with another nuclear superpower was a good thing for both countries.
“We’re going to talk to the president about some small steps in order to try to thaw the relations between our countries,” said Paul.
“Republicans that are making the criticism are either the pro-war Republicans like (Sen. John) McCain and (Sen. Lindsey) Graham or the anti-Trump ones like (Sen. Ben) Sasse,” he added. “They are motivated by their persistent and consistent dislike of the president.”
