They aren’t coming back from this one.
According to Breitbart News, Sen. Rand Paul slammed Democrats stating that they are to blame for “the mess” that has been made in cities.
“They see the spreading racial tension, they see the spreading rioting, they see … Portland’s been on fire for 55 days. I think the most important thing to come of this — because you have to figure out how do we combat this,” Paul said.
He added, “You know, law enforcement can figure out who funds illegal organizations. Hopefully, that will happen. But from the voters’ point of view, it’s important to remind people, you know, who’s been running New York City for most of last 50 years? Democrats. Who’s been running Portland? Democrats. Who’s been running Minneapolis? Democrats. So really, the blame needs to accrue where the blame should accrue. Republicans didn’t create the mess in our cities. The Democrats did.” You can watch a clip of Paul’s remarks here.
