Singer Richard Marx and Republican Kentucky Senator Rand Paul are not friends, to say the least.

The young senator from Kentucky accused Marx of “[calling] for violence against me and my family “after a suspicious package arrived at his door, containing a non-toxic substance.

This idea that Marx called for overt violence against Paul referred to a 2017 incident where a neighbor attacked Paul while the senator was doing some yard work. Paul suffered broken ribs and an infection in a damaged lung.

Marx recently tweeted (in a now deleted post):

“I’ll say it again: if I ever meet Rand Paul’s neighbor, I’m going to give him a hug and buy him as many drinks as he can drink.”





Richard Marx replied on A late show with Stéphane Colbert with all the seriousness Paul’s accusations deserved.

And Marx delightfully played the villain.






His discussion with Colbert also revolved around whether or not Marx incited violence, which Marx said he did not want violence, but only world domination.


The fans were thrilled.





Rand Paul has been cited repeatedly for anti-vaccine, anti-mask, racist and apologist behavior against Trump.

Who better than Richard Marx to speak for these critics?

We look forward to his next musical adventure.
