Rand Paul vs. Donald Trump: Nuclear Codes, Junior High Rhetoric, Rand Paul's Looks

|

Sen. Paul goes after Donald Trump for his sophomoric rhetoric. Donald Trump says he never attacked Rand Paul's looks -- but he "has a lot of material to work with."

SENATOR RAND PAUL: Well, I kind of have to laugh when I think, "Hmm--kind of sounds like a non-sequitur." He was asked whether or not he would be capable and if it would be in good hands, being in charge of nuclear weapons, and all of a sudden he made a sideways attack at me. I think that really goes at the judgment. Do we want someone with that kind of character, that kind of careless language to be negotiating with Putin? Do we want someone like that to be negotiating with Iran? I think really there is sophomoric a quality that is entertaining about Mr. Trump, but I am worried. I'm very concerned about having him in charge of the nuclear weapons because I think his response, his his real response to attack people on their appearance, short, tall, fat, ugly. My goodness, that happened in junior high. Are we not way above that? Would we not all be worried to have someone like that in charge of the nuclear arsenal?

JAKE TAPPER: Mr. Trump?

DONALD TRUMP: I never attacked him on looks, and believe me, there is plenty of subject matter there. That, I can tell you.
