Kentucky Senator and GOP presidential candidate Rand Paul stated that he would support fellow candidate Donald Trump if he won the nomination, but “I won’t be enthusiastic” on Thursday’s “Hannity” on the Fox News Channel. Rand said, [relevant remarks being around 2:00] “There will be people I will be very unhappy with. I think Donald Trump’s a disaster. I think he’ll hurt the country and we’ll lose in a landslide. But I will still pledge to support the nominee because I think Hillary Clinton is the worst person on the planet to run the country. And I think emails have cemented the notion that she just has bad judgment.” When asked if he would still be onstage firing up crowds to support Trump even though he thinks he’s a disaster and would campaign with him, Rand answered, “Well, the thing is is that there are relative degrees of enthusiasm when

Florida Senator and Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio stated that Europe’s migrant crisis isn’t just Europe’s problem and “ultimately it will impact us as well, because it destabilizes our allies” in an interview broadcast on Thursday’s “On the Record” on the Fox News Channel. Rubio said, “Well, first of all, we’ve allowed the Syrian situation to spiral out of control. I argued from the very beginning of that conflict that the US had a national security interest, primarily because of the rise of ISIS. We said that if there [weren’t] alternatives to Assad that we could work with, some radical jihadist group would emerge and become the most powerful force on the ground. I was issuing those warnings from the earliest days of that conflict. This administration did nothing. They moved slowly to arm and equip those groups. And as the moderate rebels were destroyed, and radical groups like ISIS and al-Nusra

Perry answered, “Well, I think if — I think you have a fair tax process in this country, lower the corporate tax rate. I think just going after one set of people is a little bit — again, that’s just rhetoric. We need to have a simplistic tax –.” Perry was then asked about people “making billions of dollars off of an investment, and instead of getting hit with normal income tax, and having

Gutfeld: ‘Trump Could Rule As a Dem,’ Turned ‘Righties Into Lefties’

Fox News Channel host Greg Gutfeld argued Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump “could rule as a Dem” and has “turned millions of righties into lefties” on Thursday’s broadcast of “The Five.” Gutfeld said of Trump signing the RNC’s unity pledge, “The good news, the pledge forces everyone, Donald included, to take the campaign seriously. He has to be less pundit, and sadly, more political. He can’t just keep saying ‘China’ until his face explodes.” Gutfeld continued, “The bad news, he just sold out to the evil RINOs. the outsider has now hopped inside. Now, obviously the pledge is not a legally binding document. It’s one step above a blood oath in a tree house made by two kids in knee socks. And we all know Donald only signs deals with escape hatches. A big fan of the prenup, his success is in maintaining a plausible way out.” Gutfeld later added, “After
