Lee and Rando voted NO? Are THEY Russian agents? Or just nuts (which we knew)?

According to a Tuesday Hill report, Sens. Mike Lee (R-UT) and Rand Paul (R-KY) were the only lawmakers to vote against the nonbinding motion.

Rand Paul famously questions why ice cream has to be cold.

“non-binding” = “no resistance-to-Trump skin in this game”

What’s Paul’s problem? NATO refuse to help tidy up his lawn or something?

Hmmm, seven of the GOP Senators who voted yes were in Moscow on our nation’s birthday kumbayaing with the Russian parliament.

Actions vs. words, etc.

The motion was proposed by Sen. Jack Reed (D-RI) who called American commitment to NATO “ironclad.”

And to show he was serious, he made the resolution “non-binding.”

It’s pretty straightforward-Paul is hoping for his twice yearly Trumpian tongue bath.
And Lee? He came this close to getting SC nomination. He’s counting on brownie points for next time.

He has time. 2024 is a few years down the road.

The broken ribs are messing with the oxygen delivery to his brain? I take an unchristian pleasure thinking how every deep breath Paul takes causes him excruciating pain.

It would if the market offered it an adequate incentive to.

So most Repub senators are petrified of the unhinged Russian agent we have as president, and this symbolic vote is all they can muster to stand up for our country. In a way this makes them seem even more pathetically ineffectual.

Rand Paul is a publicity-grubbing odious little wanker who likes to pose as a principled Libertarian. His vote is completely in character, or what passes for character in his case.

Not sure what Lee’s rationale is, though.

…and then the Moron-in-Chief comes out this morning guns blazing insulting our allies and paling around with the despots. JHC. I am embarrassed and mad as hell.

Lee was pissed that he was passed over for Supreme Court and Paul is simply an asshole.

So the Senate only has balls to oppose Trump when Trump is out of the country? What was the point of the motion anyway other than to show what weenies they are?
