Rand Paul: Hillary Has So Much ‘Baggage’ She Needs An Extra Plane

AP

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) criticized Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton saying she had so much baggage she’d need an extra plane just to haul it, during a speech on Saturday in New Hampshire, The Hill reported.

“I’m starting to worry that when Hillary Clinton travels, there’s gonna need to be two planes – one for her and her entourage, and one for her baggage,” Paul said. “I’m concerned that the plane with the baggage is really getting heavy and teetering.”

Paul, who, like Clinton, recently announced his 2016 presidential candidacy, criticized Clinton for using a private email account while she was secretary of State, according to The Hill. The Republican candidate also reportedly took issue with the fact that the Clinton Foundation had accepted monetary contributions from foreign governments.

Paul has recently faced criticism over his comments and behavior toward women, prompting accusations that he’s sexist and forcing his wife to defend him against the claims.
