Paul Slams 'Gossipy Websites' for Calling Out His Netanyahu Reaction
On "Fox and Friends" moments ago, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) laughed off critics who said he looked "unenthused" during yesterday's address to Congress by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
The National Review posted a series of tweets from people who claimed Paul looked "sour" and "disinterested" as Netanyahu spoke.
Is Rand Paul having a root canal?

Brian Kilmeade asked last week's CPAC straw poll winner about the reaction to his reaction.
Paul laughed off the story, calling out "gossipy websites who really demean themselves by putting stuff like that out."
And he pointed out that he stood up 50 times to applaud, "co-sponsored bringing [Netanyahu] here," and is also co-sponsoring a bill that says any lifting of sanctions on Iran must be approved by Congress.
Watch the full interview above as Paul discusses his victory in the straw poll, Hillary Clinton's private email account, and the content of Netanyahu's address.
