Rand Paul went into the lion’s den that is The View and came out the clear winner. It truly is a sight to behold to see all the liberals do a complete flip-flop and embrace endless wars and the failed neocon policies of the past.
It is as if Trump never won the 2016 election or even Barack win 2 elections running against the senseless wars.
Paul calmly educated the ladies of the View about the complexity of the Syrian situation and explained the simple fact – if we can’t define our goal in a foreign theater we should not be there.
The liberal ladies who know embrace the extreme positions of the neocons had no answer.
From The Decider:
The View‘s co-hosts are no fans of Paul’s politics, so it wasn’t surprising that things got heated during his interview. But that being said, I wasn’t expecting a full-on shit storm of chaos.
Goldberg came out of the gate swinging, asking Paul why he feels that removing U.S. troops from Syria is a good thing.
The Kentucky senator said that he thinks that “these wars are senseless, and so does President Trump,” and by removing troops, the president is trying to avoid getting “us involved in another Iraq war in Syria.”
He went on to say that “you’re talking about moving 50 soldiers,” so it shouldn’t be a big deal to remove them, particularly because “the Turks” and the “free Syrian Army” are also “allies” of the United States.
Goldberg pushed back and asked if removing soldiers on such a short timeline was “the right way to do that,” and Paul attempted to skirt around the issue.
“We should never be there in the first place,” he said. “That’s not the question,” fired back The View‘s longtime moderator. When he insisted that “for so many years, the left agreed with” him, Goldberg exploded. “I’m not the left nor right. I’m just American,” she said.
Sen. Rand Paul explains why he backs Pres. Trump’s decision to withdraw U.S. forces from Syria, saying leaving troops would overextend military: “[Trump] doesn’t want us to get involved in another Iraq war in Syria. If anything, Syria is more complicated.” https://t.co/qx8S09byZT pic.twitter.com/kzZllctUfu
