Rand Paul Is Turning Out to Be 2016's Troller-in-Chief

Paul has mastered the art of trolling his potential 2016 rivals.

— -- Sen. Rand Paul, R-Kentucky, may be mulling a bid to be the next commander-in-chief in 2016, but he may have already earned the unofficial title of troller-in-chief with his pointed digs at his potential rivals -- Democrats and Republicans alike.

The latest came on Thursday when Team Paul released audio of a fake “secret tape” of Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush talking about their 2016 runs. Paul hits his would-be rivals for being part of a dynasty. (But of course Paul doesn’t point out that he too is following in the footsteps of a famous family member who once sought the presidency: Ron Paul).

And on Wednesday, Paul used “#ThingsToRunFrom” to describe former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.

The trolling dates back to at least November, when Paul dubbed Democrats who lost in the midterm elections as “Hillary’s losers.”
