Dang, George Stephanopoulos is going to need some cream from the BURN Sen. Rand Paul gave him last night.
I am so sorry that I was not able to see this throwdown live but the video is just as satisfying. The leftists have been working overtime selling their lie that there was no election fraud and that Sleepy Joe won in a tremendous landslide against President Trump. However, for the rest of America that lives in reality, we all know that was not the case and that the election was rigged.
At any rate, in their efforts to continue to push this lie they need to call all those who even question their narrative liars as so-called liberal journalist hack, George Stephanopoulos did yesterday.
In an interview with Sen. Rand Paul from Kentucky, Stephanopoulos kept pushing him to admit that election fraud was fake but that didn’t happen. Instead of Paul bowing to Stephanopoulos’s demands he turned the tables on him in an epic showdown that was aired for all to see.
Here are some excerpts of this interview from the Washington Examiner:
“There were several states in which the law was changed by the secretary of state and not the state legislature,” Paul said in response to Stephanopoulos asking if Paul “accepted” that the election wasn’t stolen from Trump. “To me, those are clearly unconstitutional and I think there is still a chance that those actually do finally work their way up to the Supreme Court.”
“In my state, where we had a Democrat secretary of state, she refused, even under federal order, to purge the rolls of illegal voters. We got a Republican secretary of state and he purged the rolls,” Paul continued as Stephanopoulos interrupted him.
Stephanopoulos then continued to insist that Trump’s claims were a lie, to which Paul argued that 75% of Republicans have doubts about the election because the claims were never given a fair hearing either in court or by members of the media such as Stephanopoulos.
But Stephanopoulos did not relent, insisting that Paul admit verbatim that the election was not stolen from Trump, while Paul accused the host of calling Republicans liars and not allowing them to make a fair case.
“In Wisconsin, tens of thousands of absentee votes had only the name on them and no address. Historically, those were thrown out. This time they weren’t,” Paul continued. “They made special accommodations because they said, ‘Oh it’s a pandemic and people forgot what their address was,’ so they changed the law after the fact. That is wrong, that’s unconstitutional, and I plan on spending the next two years going state to state and fixing these problems and I won’t be cowed by liberals in the media who say, ‘There’s no evidence here and you’re a liar if you talk about election fraud.’ No, let’s have an open debate, it’s a free country!”Stephanopoulos continued repeating that the evidence “has been looked at” and insisting that there is no room for debate on the issue.
“You’re forgetting who you are as a journalist if you think there’s only one side,” Paul fired back. “You’re inserting yourself into the story to say that I’m a liar because I want to look at election fraud and I want to look at secretaries of state who illegally changed the voter laws without the permission of their state legislatures. That is incontrovertible, it happened, and you can’t just sweep that under the rug and say, ‘Oh nothing to see here and everybody’s a liar and you’re a fool if you bring this up.’”
“You’re inserting yourself into the story,” Paul continued. “A journalist would hear both sides and there are two sides to this story.”
But Stephanopoulos insisted he had the “facts” on his side, while Paul argued the host wasn’t willing to listen to the facts.
“Should we examine the fact that tens of thousand of absentee ballots did not have addresses on them and normally would be disqualified but this time they were counted,” Paul questioned. “I don’t know whether it affected the election or not but I have an open mind and if we actually examine this and found out it didn’t, that’s fine, but it still should be fixed.”
“I accepted the state certifications,” Paul continued. “But it doesn’t mean that I think that there wasn’t fraud, and that there weren’t problems that have to be investigated and it doesn’t mean that the law wasn’t broken. I believe in Pennsylvania they broke the law, and I believe that if that would ever get a real hearing in the Supreme Court. … I do believe that the Supreme Court would overrule and say that they did break the law.”
That was incredible in my opinion! I really hope that people who watched that exchange did begin to question instead of taking what these liberal talking heads say on television at face value.
