Sen. Rand Paul responded this morning after being branded by New York magazine as the "most loyal stooge" of President Donald Trump.
In an article yesterday, Jonathan Chait wrote that Paul has "attached himself to Trump" and refused to support an investigation into Trump's alleged ties to Russia.
"Haters are gonna hate. ... If I like what the president is doing - and I think a lot of what he's doing is good - I'm happy to support it. I'm not embarrassed to support conservative policies," said the Kentucky Republican, noting that he was the only Republican senator to oppose the budget.
