Presidential candidate Rand Paul just releases his new app where you can take selfies with him, make memes of him, and shoot missiles at other presidential hopefuls. It didn't take long for the internet to catch on and show their appreciation of this selfie feature. We've selected some of our favorites.
Cenk Uygur, John Iadarola (ThinkTank), Hannah Cranston (ThinkTank) and hosts of The Young Turks discuss. What picture would you take with Rand Paul’s new app? Let us know in the comments.
Don’t be fooled by the rave reviews of presidential hopeful Rand Paul’s new app—for many people, it’s just an opportunity to fuck around with memes.
The Kentucky Republican senator's app has a number of interesting features, including, as the Verge has lauded, the ability to tell him how you think he should vote on a given bill. The only part of the app that anyone seems to care about, though, is the ability to take a “selfie with Rand”—that is, to take a picture and have the app superimpose Paul in the foreground and upload the result to his campaign website.
While there isn’t an easily searchable repository of these photos, users of the app often preface their tweets with “check out this picture of me with rand,” so we were able to find a few examples.
