Rand Paul Is Upset Because Orrin Hatch Makes Better Weed Jokes

A Festivus is for the rest of us. If you’re a “Seinfeld” fan, you know the satirical holiday created by the show, which includes a Festivus dinner, the undecorated Festivus pole, and an “airing of grievances,” among other things.

Kentucky Senator Rand Paul celebrated Festivus this year, as he’s done in years past, and displayed his holiday spirit by sharing his “Airing of Grievances” on Twitter. He used the holiday tradition to take stray shots at Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, and Harry Reid, as it was recently revealed that he personally urged the Pentagon to investigate UFOs.

But his best mention revolved around cannabis and Utah Senator Orrin Hatch, who this month condemned the “regulatory acrobatics” involved with cannabis research. What grievance was Paul airing that included Hatch and marijuana?

Simple. He’s upset that Hatch makes better pot jokes than him.

If you were curious about just what kind of cannabis jokes Hatch is prone to making, look no further than last week. Coming across a New York Times story about an elderly couple caught with more than 60 pounds of marijuana that were to be Christmas presents, Hatch couldn’t resist some self-deprecation.

Hope everyone else had a happy Festivus.
