In what has become an annual December 23 tradition for Republican presidential candidate Dr. Rand Paul, on Wednesday the libertarian senator from Kentucky, began airing his Festivus grievances on Twitter.

Festivus is a fictional holiday from the television show Seinfeld that presents an alternative to participating in Christmas celebrations. In addition to airing grievances, celebrants also engage in feats of strength.

Paul began with the front-runner, Donald Trump, and his use of the word "schlonged" in reference to Hillary Clinton. Trump claims the word is a common Yiddish put-down. It isn't.
