As we told you earlier today, former CIA chief John Brennan had some harsh words after President Trump’s press conference with Vladimir Putin:
Donald Trump’s press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of “high crimes & misdemeanors.” It was nothing short of treasonous. Not only were Trump’s comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin. Republican Patriots: Where are you???

Republican Sen. Rand Paul responded this way:
This is coming from the guy who voted for the Communist Party USA candidate in 1976. Give me a break https://t.co/0l8X8wiNWA

Ouch! Read the replies and, sure enough, Sen. Paul really kicked a Resistance hornet’s nest with that one. Here’s just a sampling of the blue check backlash:
You’re a disgrace to your nation.

Hey Rand, we know what you did and why you’re defending him. You’re not going to get away with it…

You are a disgrace to this country and if you like what happened today you should move yourself to Russia where you belong. #traitor

What kompromat do they have on you, Mr. Paul?
