Rand Paul Calls Out Fox News Host for ‘Lying’ on Live TV

Kentucky Republican Senator Rand Paul slammed Fox News over a discussion about the recently passed legislation to ban Chinese social media app TikTok.

As we reported on Wednesday, the new bill passed the House of Representatives, which would force ByteDance, TikTok’s parent company, to divest from and sell the app.

The legislation, dubbed “Protecting Americans from Foreign Adversary Controlled Applications Act,” was approved by a 352-65 vote.

Fox News’ Fox & Friends co-host Brian Kilmeade told Paul that ByteDance is owned by the Chinese government, to which he responded, “No, it’s not, see, that’s a lie.”

“You’re defaming the company,” Paul said.

“Sixty percent of it is owned by international investors, 20 percent is owned by the software developers who are Chinese and 20 percent is owned by the employees, 7,000 of whom are Americans.”

Kilmeade continued to argue that ByteDance is owned by the Chinese government, to which the Paul disputed this remark again, saying: “No they don’t, see you just told a lie Brian.”

As reported last week, Joe Biden said he would happily sign the legislation into law if it reached his desk.

While boarding Air Force One en route to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Biden said of the bill, “If they pass it, I’ll sign it.”

A press release from the Select Committee on the Chinese Communist Party said:

The “bill prevents app store availability or web hosting services in the U.S. for ByteDance-controlled applications, including TikTok, unless the application severs ties to entities like ByteDance that are subject to the control of a foreign adversary, as defined by Congress in Title 10.”

The legislation says the app will face a clampdown unless ByteDance sells TikTok within 180 days of the bill being enacted.
