Rand Paul assets that the Democrats have no right to accuse Republicans of waging a "war on women", because Bill Clinton "took advantage of a 20-year-old girl". This is patently false. More accurate is to say that "a 22-year-old woman took advantage of him". She sought him out, he did not seek her out. She is on record as saying that "I'm going to the White House to get my presidential kneepads."
Far from backing off from his original false statements, Rand Paul has recently doubled down on his falsities by repeating that Clinton took advantage of a "20-year old college girl". In actuality, Lewinsky had graduated from college when she got the intern job at the White House.
If this is the quality of Paul's pronouncements, his presidential aspirations will end soon.
