Rand Paul Denies Trump Lost Election During ‘ABC Sunday’ Meltdown

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) sounded delusional during an appearance on ABC’s This Week with host George Stephanopoulos over the weekend. During the show, Paul feverishly defended the idea that there’s a legitimate reason to question the duly documented outcome of the 2020 election, and he added that he even thinks that there’s still a chance that a court fight over that election could reach the U.S. Supreme Court! Days after the inauguration of President Joe Biden, Paul is apparently still holding onto the unhinged hope that there’s a chance for Supreme Court intervention.

Eventually, Paul got into rhetorical territory that rivaled infamously ridiculous comments from ex-Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway, who insisted that the Trump administration was presenting so-called “alternative facts” when their statements conflicted with reality. Over the weekend, Paul said that there are “two sides to every story,” which makes him sound as though he was struggling with the concept of basic reality. There are not “two sides to every story”! The difference between documented lies and facts is not a matter of debate.

Asked if he acknowledges the fact that the recent election was “not stolen,” Paul refused to answer in the affirmative. He refused to acknowledge that Trump conclusively lost the election. Instead, Paul commented as follows:

‘Well what I would say is that the debate over whether or not there was fraud should occur. We never had any presentation in court where we actually looked at the evidence. Most of the cases were thrown out for lack of standing, which is a procedural way of not actually hearing the question. There were several states in which the law was changed by the Secretary of State and not the state legislature. To me, those are clearly unconstitutional, and I think there’s still a chance that those actually do finally work their way up to the Supreme Court.’

Watch his unhinged comments below:

Paul’s allegation that no court actually considered the supposed evidence of widespread election fraud is false. Besides, the Department of Justice also investigated the issue, and they concluded that there was no legitimate evidence of systematic election fraud.

Subsequently, Paul began ranting against the media. He belligerently commented as follows:

‘That’s the problem with the media today is they say all Republicans are liars and everything we say is a lie. There are two sides to every story! Interview somebody on the other side, but don’t insert yourself into the story to say we’re all liars.’

The basic reality that Paul petulantly refuses to acknowledge is not a matter of debate. Presidential election results in every single state underwent comprehensive examination. There was no statewide or nationwide election-rigging scheme. Paul’s insistence that there’s at least a chance of the contrary is stunning.

He added as follows, angrily ranting directly at Stephanopoulos:

‘What I would suggest is that if we want greater confidence in our elections, and 75 percent of Republicans agree with me, is that we do need to look at election integrity, and we do need to see if we can restore confidence in the elections… Where you make a mistake is that, people coming from the liberal side like you, you immediately say everything is a lie instead of saying there are two sides to everything. Historically what would happen is if I said that I thought there was fraud, you would interview someone else who said there wasn’t, but now you insert yourself in the middle and say the absolute fact is that everything I’m saying is a lie.’
