Rand Paul Is Only Lawmaker Who Refused To Stand, Applaud Jeff Flake Trashing POTUS Trump On Senate Floor

Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ) gave a bridge burning speech on the Senate floor after news broke that he will not seek re-election in 2018. According to Daily Beast reporter Andrew Desiderio, every lawmaker who attended the speech, both Democrats and Republicans, stood and clapped for Flake — except Rand Paul.

The KY lawmaker didn’t see the virtue in trashing Trump as tax reform is on the table.

“All stood and clapped after Flake’s speech—except @RandPaul,” tweeted Desiderio.

Below is a list of all the Senators who were present.
