WASHINGTON — Well, that’s precious.
Sen. Rand Paul trolled fellow GOP presidential contender Donald Trump, so to speak, on Wednesday by saying that Trump is out for power rather than to fix the government — and likening his opponent to Lord of the Rings villain Gollum. (Wait, is Gollum a villain?)
“This race should not be about who can grasp the ring,” Paul wrote in a Facebook note. “Electing Gollum should not be our objective. This race should be about which candidate will best protect you from an overbearing government.”
