Sen. Rand Paul has a lot to be upset about this year. He's behind Donald Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz, and even New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie in the polls. He's a libertarian skeptical of new military spending in a party that's largely in favor of it. And so on December 23, the Seinfeld-inspired holiday of Festivus, he is airing his grievances in an annual ritual.
Except his grievances about the presidential race were mostly just insults (and jokes) about Trump's use of "schlonged," Ted Cruz's Canadianness, and Hillary Clinton's bathroom habits:
Good morning and HAPPY #Festivus! I will be airing my grievances soon.— Dr. Rand Paul (@RandPaul) December 23, 2015
"I've got a lot of problems with you people and now you're gonna hear about them!" #Festivus— Dr. Rand Paul (@RandPaul) December 23, 2015
But first, my fellow Presidential candidates get the #Festivus treatment!— Dr. Rand Paul (@RandPaul) December 23, 2015
Then Paul had an actual grievance: federal spending he considers wasteful.
