Rand Paul Calls Trump ‘Sophomoric,’ Trump Responds by Calling Him Ugly

rand paul trumpTonight’s big GOP debate on CNN started with, of course, a focus on Donald Trump. After Carly Fiorina avoided saying definitively whether she’d be comfortable with Trump’s finger on the nuclear trigger, Trump responded at the top with a swipe at Rand Paul, by saying he shouldn’t be on the debate stage.

When it was Paul’s turn to respond, he snarked at Trump throwing out a “non-sequitur” and “sideways attack at me” instead of focusing on substance.

He called out Trump’s “careless language” and said that yes, he would be concerned about Trump negotiating anything on America’s behalf and his finger being on the nuclear trigger.

Paul also took issue with Trump’s “junior high” snipes at other candidates’ appearances. Trump shot back by saying of Paul, “I never attacked him on his look, and believe me, there’s plenty of subject matter right there.”
