On Wednesday, a “thrilled” President Barack Obama appointed Susan Rice—notoriously linked to the White House’s Benghazi terror attack cover-up— to the as the Administration’s national security advisor.
“I am absolutely thrilled she’ll be back at my side, leading my national security team in my second term,” Obama said.
Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) delivered an appropriate response during an interview with Fox News.
“You know, I think the president’s been struggling to regain the moral authority to lead the nation and this doesn’t really encourage anyone,” Paul said.
“To reappoint or to promote, basically, the person who was guilty of misleading us over the Benghazi tragedy, I can’t imagine one, that we would be keeping Ambassador Rice in any significant position much less promoting her to an important position. How are they going to have the authority for people to believe what they’re saying when he’s promoting someone who directly and deliberately mislead the public over Benghazi?”
