Rand Paul Gutlessly Subtweets Trump On “Authority”

The Daily Beast reports:

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) took an unsubtle shot at the president on Tuesday, pushing back on Trump’s claim of having “total” authority over states when it comes to reopening the economy post-coronavirus.

In a tweet, Paul said that the U.S. Constitution does not allow the federal government “to become the ultimate regulator of our lives because they wave a doctor’s note.”

Trump is facing backlash for asserting during a coronavirus press briefing on Monday that “when somebody is the president of the United States, the authority is total and that is the way it’s gonna be.”
