Rand Paul Continues His Traditional ‘Airing of Grievances’ in Honor of Festivus


Rand_Paul_by_Gage_Skidmore_9It’s Festivus! Which means Rand Paul has got a lot of problems with politicians, and they’re gonna hear about — on Twitter, at least.

For the uninitiated, it’s Festivus tradition to gather your friends and family and “tell them all the ways they have disappointed you over the past year.” Paul has a history of voicing his problems against the Washington establishment and his fellow politicians in honor of the Festivus holiday, and lucky for us this year is no different.

That’s right, it’s time for Paul’s annual Airing of Grievances: 2016 presidential campaign edition.

Before delving into his problems with Washington, Congress, and the government in general, Paul took aim at his fellow presidential candidates, beginning with the Republican frontrunners Donald Trump and Ted Cruz.

He burned Ben Carson with a subtle jab at the candidate’s quiet demeanor.

He simultaneously knocked Chris Christie and the Dallas Cowboys — Christie’s long-time team.

He hit Marco Rubio on his frequent absences from Congress.

He paid his respects to his “recently departed” comrad Lindsey Graham.

He balked at socialism and Bernie Sanders.

And he aired a non-grievance to Carly Fiorina, taking the opportunity to instead diss Hillary Clinton‘s bathroom break at Saturday’s Democratic debate.

And finally, he made a low-energy insult aimed at Jeb Bush.

If tradition holds, we can expect Paul to air more grievances later this afternoon, likely aimed at the rest of Washington and politics in general. It truly is a Festivus for the rest of us!
