Rand Paul recently bought an attack ad against Donald Trump. Trump wasted little time attacking back. Rand Paul may now be questioning his tactics. Cenk Uygur, John Iadarola (Think Tank), Ben Mankiewicz (Turner Classic Movies), and RJ Eskow (The Zero Hour), hosts of the The Young Turks, break it down.

Paul isn't just screwing up; he's screwing up comprehensively. His attacks on Donald Trump this last week have been an effete shitshow.
