about Mr. Oil's confirmation

Stephanopoulos: what about all this hacking
Paul: Trump got 70% of the vote
in Kentucky and it wasn't because
of the Russians

threat from around the world

of Exxon as Secretary of State?

on John Bolton – he's terrifying
Stephanopoulos: Rex Tillerson
has close ties to Putin

the Iraq war a good idea

regime change in Libya and Syria

demanded the U.S. go into Libya
Paul: I will do anything to keep John Bolton
away from the State Department
Stephanopoulos: you're a spending hawk
Paul: all budgets must be balanced!
Paul: I'm a 'no' vote on all
Stephanopoulos: that could be a problem
Paul: we gonna need a better budget

to curry favor with the President by doing
business with the Trump corporation
