"I think Donald Trump has a long way to go to convince many of us that he is a conservative. He supported President Obama in 2008. He supported the single payer system. He supported higher taxes, gave money to Harry Reid, gave money to Charlie Rangel. ... In many ways he may be a fake conservative... It still boggles my mind that anybody in the Tea Party, the movement I came out of, could really be supporting Donald Trump."

---Rand Paul's reaction to Sarah Palin endorsing Donald Trump

2016 GOP presidential candidate, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul called into Kilmeade & Friends to talk about Sarah Palin endorsing Donald Trump, how it boggles his mind Trump is getting Tea Party support, the need to re-evaluate how we do background checks on those applying for visas, why Ted Cruz's lack of authenticity is more of an issue than his temperament and why he feels he will win in Iowa.

Listen here:

(BRIAN) Your reaction to a conservative like Sarah Palin deciding to go with Donald Trump?

(RAND PAUL) I think Donald Trump has a long way to go to convince many of us that he is a conservative. He supported President Obama in 2008, he supported the single payer system, he supported higher taxes, gave money to Harry Reid, gave money to Charlie Rangel. So call me a conservative, a Tea Party conservative, that's not really convinced that Donald Trump is a real conservative. In many ways he may be a fake conservative because he supports the abuse of eminent domain, he built his business model on the government taking away peoples private property and giving it to him. It still boggles my mind that anybody in the Tea Party, the movement I came out of, could really be supporting Donald Trump.
