GOP Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky sparked a slush of mockery on Twitter over his latest attempt at bashing President Joe Biden backfired spectacularly.
Paul on Wednesday shared a photo of himself staring pensively at a wall of guns with the caption “Just looking at all the guns @joebiden is going to try to ban…”
Naturally, Twitter users rushed to respond and mockery ensued.
“TFW ur doing everything in your power to become a meme,” one person cracked at a photo the Kentucky Republican shared online.
“God forbid someone like the 19-year-old who shot 34 of my classmates and administrators killing 17 not be able to get an AR-15,” Tweeted David Hog.

Nothing says gun-toting tough guy like a tucked in Brooks Brothers oxford and nautical belt.

Do these idiots ever get tired of lying about culture war bullshit? Moderate gun regulations that will still leave hundreds of millions of guns in America is hardly a "ban" and of course Rand Paul knows that. https://t.co/ep00unGWWt

I'm looking at something that prolifically kills Americans… and also a bunch of guns.
