Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) loves Festivus, a holiday that was the focus of a 1997 episode of “Seinfeld” that features a ceremony known as the Airing of Grievances.
Yes, that’s the department Perry famously forgot in a 2011 presidential debate while trying to name three departments he’d eliminate as president.
Paul also expressed concern over the rise of fake news in 2016, while taking a jab at MSNBC’s Brian Williams.
Dan O’Keefe, the “Seinfeld” writer who penned the episode about Festivus, told HuffPost in 2015 he wants Paul to stop using the holiday “as a way to make warmed-over 10-year-old talking points.”
“I hate the guy,” O’Keefe said. “I think he’s some sort of lizard that somehow crawled into a suit and somehow’s been allowed into the Senate.”
