Oh snap! Rand Paul just took off his gloves.
Republican presidential candidate Rand Paul smacked around Democratic rival Hillary Clinton at a campaign stop in New Hampshire this morning on the eve of the former Obama administration official’s first visit to the Granite State as a proclaimed 2016 candidate.
‘When Hillary Clinton travels there’s going to need to be two planes, one for her and her entourage, one for her baggage,’ Paul said during remarks at a New Hampshire GOP summit taking place in Nashua this weekend.
‘I’m concerned that the plane with the baggage is really getting heavy and teetering’ Paul said, predicting that she’d soon have new questions to answer about her family foundation’s donations from foreign actors.
Clinton embarked on a cross-country trip in an armored van she nicknamed ‘Scooby’ last weekend for the first leg of her presidential bid. She ditched the van within days and flew back to the East Coast, travelling coach.
The wealthy Democrat was spotted at the Omaha, Nebraska, airport on the way back carting her own luggage.
Paul has been suggesting since he announced his bid for the Oval Office in early April that Clinton, a former first lady, U.S. senator, secretary of state and board member of the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation would ‘soon’ face a day of reckoning over the charity’s fundraising practices.
‘I think there is big news coming on the Clinton Foundation,’ Paul told Fox News during a New Hampshire swing earlier this month. ‘I think there are things that went on at the Clinton Foundation that are going to shock people.’
‘I think they’re going to make people question whether she ought to run for president,’ he said, declining to go into more detail.
He’s issued the foreboding warning several times since, saying today, ‘There’s more coming, too.’
Paul said that if Clinton wants ‘to be the candidate of women’s rights,’ she after to answer for the Clinton Foundation’s acceptance of gifts from Saudi Arabia, which disrespects women, as well as her use of a private email server while working at the State Department.
