Rand Paul Attacked For Not Applauding Netanyahu Enough
"Cenk Uygur (http://www.twitter.com/cenkuygur) host of The Young Turks discusses the twitter exchange between Republican Senator Rand Paul and a Washington reporter, Jennifer Rubin, over his appearing to be incredibly unhappy while applauding Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during the Prime Minister's speech to Congress.
Seeming to channel his natural Grumpy Cat, the clip of his slow clapping has become a GIF that has gone semi-viral across conservative blogs. In response Rand Paul took to 'Fox & Friends' to dispel rumors that he disagrees with the Prime Minister's speech. According to Paul he had already given over fifty standing ovations to the Prime Minister and the quick shot of his reaction is taken out of context. The Prime Minister's speech continues to be a topic of division and controversy among U.S. leaders."
