Rand Paul: ‘Clintons Have This Certain Sense They Are Above the Law’

‘There’s this grand hypocrisy in the sense that we’ve got this “war on women” thing Democrats like to talk about and yet’ Hillary takes money from Saudi Arabia

TODD: “Hillary Clinton's getting into this race. You have been comfortable bringing up a lot of her past, a lot of Bill Clinton’s past and saying it should be thought about and debated. You’re hesitant about your past; you don't like your associations with your father being a part of your campaign.”
PAUL: “Right.”
TODD: “Isn’t that a little hypocritical?”
PAUL: “I think the thing is about the Clintons, there is a certain sense that they think they're above the law and I think there is also this grand hypocrisy for the Clintons in the sense that we have got this whole thing, this 'war on women' thing that they like to talk about, and yet Hillary Clinton has taken money from countries that rape victims are publicly lashed. In Saudi Arabia women was gang raped by seven men. She was publicly lashed 90 times and then she was convicted of being in car with an unmarried man. We should be boycotting, voluntarily boycotting a country, not buying stuff from a country that does that.”
TODD: “So you want a boycott? If you're the president, 'Saudi Arabia, you're no longer an ally. You are done.'”
PAUL: “Well, I think that's a little different than what I am saying. I am talking about -- remember with South Africa, there was much of it -- there was voluntary boycott saying, you know what, personally, you know, I’m going to try to tell my university not to invest in this country because of what they do to women. I think I would expect Hillary Clinton if she believes in women's rights, she should be calling for a boycott of Saudi Arabia. Instead, she's accepting tens of millions of dollars and I think it looks unseemly and there will be some explaining she'll have to come up with.”
