Fox News’ Brit Hume joins Krauthammer slamming Rand Paul: is he even a Republican?


U.S. Sen. Rand Paul promises voters that he is a “different kind of Republican,” but Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume wonders if he’s even running for the right party’s nomination.

“He seems confused about which party he’s running in,” Hume told host Chris Wallace on “Fox News Sunday.”

Hume was referring to Paul’s rigid stance against the Patriot Act, which is set to expire at 12:01 Monday morning unless the Senate votes to extend it, and the Kentucky senator’s criticism of fellow Republicans regarding Islamic State militants.

Paul vowed Saturday to “force the expiration of the NSA illegal spy program” — which is how he described the Patriot Act.

“These stances, either on surveillance or on who’s responsible for ISIS, they’re not going to sit well with the majority of the Republican population,” Hume said.

. . . this is tyranny, terrorism right here in America’

Hume’s remarks come on the heels of Fox News contributor Charles Krauthammer eviscerating Paul over his stance on ISIS.

“You know, sometimes, Ron Paul’s ignorance really astonishes me,” Krauthammer said Friday, before joking that he made a Freudian slip, intending to say Rand Paul.

He then ripped the 2016 GOP presidential contender over his lack of understanding of circumstances between Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s government and ISIS.

With well respected media personalities like Hume and Krauthammer criticizing his policy stances, Paul can be sure that the climb to the Republican nomination just got a little steeper.
