Sen. Rand Paul leapt at the opportunity to swipe Hillary Clinton on Friday.

The Kentucky Republican was asked on Fox News about the Democrat’s comments Thursday that climate change constituted “the most consequential, urgent, sweeping collection of challenges” facing the country and the world.

His response: “I don’t think we really want a commander-in-chief who is battling climate change instead of terrorism.”

He went on to question “whether she has the wisdom to lead the country — which I think it’s obvious that she doesn’t.”

Both Paul and Clinton are seen as likely 2016 presidential contenders.
