HOT HOT: Rand Paul Angles to Become Trump's Emissary to Iran

Senator Rand Paul

Oh, this would be awesome.

Over a round of golf this past weekend, Sen. Rand Paul asked President Donald Trump’s blessing for a sensitive diplomatic mission.

Rand proposed sitting down with Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif to extend a fresh olive branch on the president’s behalf, according to four U.S. officials. The aim: to reduce tensions between the two countries. Trump signed off on the idea, reports Politico.

It is already driving the warhawks crazy. From Politico:
With Zarif in New York City this week for U.N. meetings and private sitdowns with journalists and think-tank experts, the prospect of the dovish Kentucky senator serving as the administration’s chief diplomatic emissary has rankled many administration officials, who are expressing concern that Paul’s intervention threatens to scuttle the president’s “maximum pressure” campaign against Tehran.
There is no one close to Trump that is better suited for this effort.

This is a developing story. Return to this post for updates.


It's a done deal, Rand's the man.

The Hill reports:

President Trump signed off this weekend on a proposal from Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) for him to serve as a liaison to Iran to try to reduce skyrocketing tensions between Washington and Tehran.


And the warhawk attacks begin:



  1. I hope Rand fortifies his security.

  2. Levin is an idiot. Proven idiot.
    This is great news, good luck to Sen. Paul!

    1. Agree and agree. Levin is an idiot. And much success to Rand Paul as he tries to head off the warhawks starting a hot war with Iran.

      Levin, Bolton, etc. have probably never been in a real fight - fist fight or shooting fight. If they ever got into one they would probably wet their pants.

    2. The only war that Bolton didn't like was Vietnam, and that's probably because he would have had to fight in it.

  3. Eeewww. You had to post the tweet by Levin. Now I'll have to go take a shower.
    But go, Rand!!!
    POTUS 2024 (5)?? We can hope.

  4. I approve! Great move by Orange Man Bad as president.

  5. Like clockwork! Rand for VP!
