Bill Maher Calls Out Rand Paul For Pandering To Republican Base

Bill Maher wants to know what happened to Rand Paul.

On "Real Time With Bill Maher" Friday night, the host took Sen. Paul (R-Ky.) to task, claiming the presidential candidate has recently changed many of his libertarian beliefs.

"New rule: You can't have any more Republican candidates for president until you tell me what you did with Rand Paul," Maher said, "who was last seen standing in front of an aircraft carrier setting fire to everything he used to believe."

By way of example, he said, "If you want to say, 'I'm a new kind of Republican,' don't do what all the rest of them do and stand in front of the Yorktown … and then suggest adding $190 billion to the defense budget -- the one you used to want to cut."

Elsewhere in the episode, he discussed Mike Huckabee, Carly Fiorina and Deflategate.
