Rand Paul Hails 40k+ Linemen Gathered to Assist with FL Hurricane Recovery as ‘The Backbone of America…’

U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) today hailed 40,000 plus linemen gathered to assist with Florida hurricane recovery as “the backbone of America.”

Paul made the declaration in a quote tweet of a Barstool Sports video that showed the linemen gathered in a parking lot.

“40k+ linemen are waiting by in Florida right now ready to go to work when they can. Legit superstars,” Barstool Sports said in a tweet that included the video.

The video has been viewed over 7 million times as of noon today.

Paul said in the quote tweet, “The backbone of America…”

One left-wing Twitter troll attempted to suggest in response that Paul “never said anything when the tornados and floods hit KY….just saying.”

Another Twitter user however reminded them of an Aug. 9 tweet where Paul shared a clip of an interview that he gave.

“Today I surveyed the damage in Eastern Kentucky. I formally requested both President Biden and Gov Beshear issue waivers to use unspent COVID-19 relief funds to repair the damage from this disastrous flooding,” Paul said in the tweet.
