Rand Paul airs grievances about impeachment, ‘your favorite politicians’ as part of Festivus

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) aired his grievances about impeachment and “your favorite politicians” Monday as part of Festivus, the holiday popularized by “Seinfeld.” 

Paul took to Twitter to post those grievances, as USA Today reported he has been doing since 2016, starting with impeachment.

“I’ve got a lot of problems with all of you people and impeachment,” he tweeted, taking aim at Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) for refusing to send the House-passed articles of impeachment to the Senate. 

The Kentucky senator also targeted President Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani, criticizing his media appearances and his “butt dials” to NBC News. 

“You do have to wonder how he was the best the President could think of for a lawyer,” he said. 

Paul also blasted the government for “waste” spending, specifically calling out funds going to studying frog mating calls in Panama, purchasing textbooks for Afghan students and studying the habits of online dating app users. 

The senator also poked fun at the Democratic candidates for president, including former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), and their ages.

The House impeached Trump on two articles last week, moving the matter to the Senate for trial in January. The GOP-majority Senate is expected to acquit the president.
