Twitter rips Rand Paul over his sell-out trip to Moscow to meet with Russian lawmakers: “Enjoy your visit to your homeland, Comrade Paul.” Judging from the reaction on social media, Paul’s trip to Russia just backfired big time.
Paul tweeted: “Engagement is vital to our national security and peace around the world. Today, I met with Chairman Kosachev, and we agreed on the importance of continued dialogue.”

Meanwhile, Special Counsel Robert Mueller has indicted more than 10 Russians and Russian entities in connection with interference in the 2016 presidential election. Further, Maria Butina, a Kremlin-linked operative, is sitting behind bars on a host of charges after she was to infiltrate the Republican Party.
Paul also met with Sergey Kislyak while in Moscow. You will recall Kislyak met with members of the Trump campaign. Trump also leaked classified information to Kislyak and Sergey Lavrov during their visit to the White House.
Well, Twitter wasn’t taking too kindly to Paul’s trip or his tweet:

Can you please issue a statement as to how this meeting and bringing RUSSIAN LAWMAKERS TO THE UNITED STATES will be helpful to the people of Kentucky, and the people of the United States of which YOU REPRESENT? It seems quite clear you’ve forgotten who YOU WORK FOR SENATOR.

Your dad wrote for the John Birch Society and you work for Russia. Traitor, I hope you fare well in prison, though it’s shameful that you will go to a camp while someone who sells a little weed goes to hell.
