Dopey CNN Host Calls Rand Paul an 'A**' — Rand's Wife Kelley Returns Fire

In this episode of “CNN being CNN”…

“Mainstream” media sock puppets across the fruited plain continue to gnash their loser-ass teeth over the confirmation on Thursday that “infectious emerging diseases” expert (ahem) did in fact lie to Sen. Rand Paul during intense questioning from the Kentucky Republican about whether Fauci authorized — and/or had knowledge of — gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.


One of those “mainstream” media sock puppets is CNN host Brianna Keilar, who on Friday continued her hissy fit, calling Paul an “a**,”  prompting Paul’s wife Kelley to return fire at Keilar.

But we’ll get to that in a minute.

As we reported on Wednesday of last week, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) confirmed that Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergens and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), flat-out lied to Paul during a Senate hearing on May 11th, 2021.

Also on Wednesday, Sen. Paul took a well-deserved victory lap with a one-sense tweet:

‘I told you so’ doesn’t even begin to cover it.

Rand Paul: 1, Democrat COVID mouthpiece: 0. CNN hardest hit.

And Keilar? She mad. Then Paul’s wife Kelley stepped in to have a word with the host.

After the publication of the NIH letter — which directly and specifically contradicts what Fauci and NIH Director Dr. Francis Collins have repeatedly claimed (lied about) — Kelley called out Keilar and CBS host Gayle King for their typical sleazy behavior, as reported by The Blaze on Sunday.

While Rand has been demanding transparency from Fauci for over a year, lowbrow hacks like
@brikeilarcnn responded by calling Rand an a** on air. Giggling @GayleKing fangirled Fauci and ridiculed Rand, ignoring the point of his questions.

Have any comments now, Gayle and Brianna?


Ooh, that had to leave a mark.

Surprisingly, Keilar then apologized for her blatantly biased, non-professional attack against Rand Paul.

Just kidding — the CNN hack doubled down.

Keilar then fired off seven more tweets — every one of which exemplified what we’ve come to expect from Brianna Keilar, her CNN colleagues, and The Most Trusted Name in News™ in general. Here’s the first:

The virus that was studied in this research, per NIH, could not be the SARS virus that causes COVID-19 any more than Sen. Paul could be a chimpanzee.

Wait — I thought Paul was a donkey. Very confusing.


In the six subsequent tweets, Keilar kept digging.

The theory Paul constructs, that Fauci’s covering up how covid is a man-made virus unleashed on the world by the Obama administration because of an NIH research grant awarded in 2014, is not supported by this letter. It’s actually disproven by the information in the letter.

There is alarming new info here though. The NIH says the research by grantee EcoHealth Alliance wasn’t aiming to achieve gain-of-function, but it did. That’s potentially dangerous and so they were supposed to report it. They didn’t until now.

Now to the ass thing. Seeing as Paul is verifiably full of it I do think it’s an apt metaphor. He claimed NYC had “community immunity” from covid when the immunity level was estimated at a meager 22%. He told Americans at the height of the pandemic to throw away their masks.

Sen. Paul also jeopardized the health of others, visiting the senate gym while awaiting a covid test result that would later turn out positive. And at the height of the pandemic, he walked around the senate floor without wearing a mask.

He was once very concerned about the pandemic, but not the one that has killed more than 700,000 in the US. The one that killed 1: Ebola. The difference, besides a death toll larger than the size of the population of Denver, was that Ebola happened while a Democrat was president.

Dr. Fauci and American public health officials should answer questions about oversight of this US-funded research. No public official is immune from scrutiny. But Sen. Paul, a bloviator of misinformation, is certainly not the man for that job.


“A bloviator of misinformation.” Seriously, Brianna Keilar? Seriously, CNN?

I wonder if CNN ever stops to think that if it put as much effort into researching and reporting facts instead of embarrassingly shilling for the Democrat Party, it might become a legitimate source for news? (See: “Hell,” “snowball’s chance.”)

So did Kelley Paul.

Rand has been the ONLY person asking these questions. Your network certainly wasn’t. Yet when he did, you resorted to silly name-calling of Rand instead of reporting on the content of his questions or Fauci’s obfuscations. Bloviator of misinformation? Look in the mirror!

Brianna? Yeah, go ahead and throw your towel into the ring and walk the hell away.

CNN has had a stellar week, gang. In other words, CNN has been CNN. Here are a few of their greatest hits, as presented by RedState:
