Rand Paul appeared on ABC’s This Week over the weekend and host George Stephanopoulos tried to back him into a corner over the 2020 election.
Rand Paul fired back and called out George for his massive political bias.
It was a great moment.
WATCH: Sen. Rand Paul Shreds George Stephanopoulos for Being a Liberal Hack
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) on Sunday spared with ABC News host George Stephanopoulos over the results of the 2020 presidential election. According to Paul, so-called “journalists” like Stephanopoulos repeatedly interject themselves into the voter fraud narrative, saying there is no evidence fraud existed.
“A threshold question for you, this election was not stolen, do you accept that fact?” the host asked…
“I have to stop you there. No election is perfect, but there were 86 challenges filed by President Trump and his allies in court, all were dismissed. Every state certified the results after counts and recounts. The Department of Justice, led by William Barr, said there’s no widespread fraud. Can’t you just say the words this election was not stolen?” he asked.
After some back and forth, Paul fired back with this:
“Sure there are. There are two sides to every story. George, you’re forgetting who you are as a journalist if you think there’s only one side,” the senator said. “You’re inserting yourself into the story to say I’m a liar because I want to look at secretaries of state who changed the laws. It happened. You can’t just sweep it under the rug—nothing to see here. You’re a fool to bring this up. A journalist would hear both sides. Not insert themselves in the story.”

Pressed repeatedly by @GStephanopoulos, Sen. Rand Paul won’t say the 2020 election wasn’t stolen, calls for investigation of fraud, but doesn’t provide evidence.

Stephanopoulos worked in the Bill Clinton administration.
The idea that he is some kind of objective journalist is ridiculous.
