Paul releases ‘secret tape’ of Bush, Clinton

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) tweaked Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton in a tweet on Thursday that had audio of a faked conversation between the two.

In the conversation, an actor playing the former Florida governor calls an actress playing the former secretary of State, and the two argue over whose turn it is to be president.

{mosads}“I just wanted to call and give you a heads-up in hopes we could work something out,” the person playing Bush says.

“What do you mean, Jeb? It’s clearly my turn: Bush, Clinton, Bush. Now, Clinton,” the person playing Clinton says.

Paul has argued that the GOP needs new blood in its leadership ranks. He’s said 2012 nominee Mitt Romney, who is considering a third consecutive run for president, has had his day and should never run again.

The fake phone call also dings Clinton for saying she and former President Bill Clinton left the White House “dead broke,” and seeks to tie Bush and Clinton together on policy issues.

“Maybe we can work something out,” fake Clinton says in the call. “We both agree on so many issues: bigger government, Common Core, and amnesty for illegal immigrants.”

Paul has delighted in tweaking his fellow presidential contenders over social media. He’s taken shots at Bush over his support of Common Core and Romney for considering another presidential run.

Paul recently became the first ever presidential candidate to conduct an interview over Snapchat.
