Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) appeared on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace and said that President Obama and former President George W. Bush could have “conceivably been put in jail” for using drugs.
Sen. Paul said: “Look, the last two presidents could have conceivably been put in jail for their drug use and I really think – look what would’ve happened, it would’ve ruined their lives. They got lucky. But a lot of poor kids, particularly in the inner city, don’t get lucky and they don’t have good attorneys and they go to jail for some of these things and I think it’s a big mistake.”
Um, I think he forgot former President Bill Clinton, but as host Chris Wallace said, “Actually, I think it would be the last three presidents, but who’s counting?”
