Rand Paul Trolls Marco Rubio On Twitter

Responding to comments made by Senator Marco Rubio yesterday, Senator Rand Paul took to Twitter today to strike back at his colleague.

On “The Kelly File” last evening, Rubio had told Megyn Kelly that Paul has “no idea what he’s talking about” when it comes to Cuba. The senator from Kentucky fired back with this:

Bret Baier Helps ‘Break the Internet”

Screen Shot 2014-11-13 at 10.06.44 AM

FOX News’ Bret Baier got in on the social media buzz surrounding yesterday’s release of Kim Kardashian‘s Paper Magazine Cover.

I would be remiss if I did not have at least one post relating to Kimmy K’s “Break the Internet” campaign, so thanks Bret!
