Rand Paul Teaches Lady Reporter How To Talk To Him, Again
The next not-president from the great state of Kentucky, Rand Paul, has a bit of a lady problem. As in, he just doesn't seem to like them very much. Especially when they step out of line and ask him questions he'd rather not answer.
His latest catfight was with the Today show's Savannah Guthrie, who was all kinds of unfairly and unladylikely asking him to explain why his views on pants-crapping over Iran and sending aid to Israel have changed from "no" and "no" to "Awwww, hell yeah!"
“Why don’t we let me explain instead of talking over me, OK?” Paul interjected. “Before we go through a litany of things you say I’ve changed on, why don’t you ask me a question, ‘Have I changed my opinion?’ That would be sort of a better way to approach an interview.”
“Is Iran still not a threat?” Guthrie asked in the cross-talk.
“No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. Listen, you’ve editorialized,” Paul said. “Let me answer a question. You ask a question, and you say, ‘Have your views changed?’ instead of editorializing and saying my views have changed.”
That is the proper way to interview Rand Paul, dumb lady reporter lady. And besides, bringing up things Paul said a million years ago, in 2007, is out of line:
Yeah, 2007 was a long time ago, and events do change over long periods of time. So we’re talking about eight years ago. We’re talking about a time when I wasn’t running for office, and I was helping someone else run for office.
A real journalist would know that when a man says words expressing his views for some other candidate, they do not count whenhebecomes a candidate. Now that Paul is running for office, of course his views are going to change. Hello, LADY, do you even know ANYTHING?
Besides, Paul says, "I think my position on Iran is one that reflects the events and reflects the current history with regards to Iran." See, there's a perfectly good reason for Rand Paul changing his positions, based on no-longer-operational history, to the opposite of what he used to believe, based on the new history. Come on, female reporter, this ain't eye surgery!
This also ain't the first time Rand Paul's panties have gotten twisted over a chick "journalist" being SO RUDE to him when he is talking. In February, Paul had to teach another dumb woman reporter, CNBC's Kelly Evans, how to do her job because she also insisted on asking him questions he did not like, and he was forced to tell her, "Hey, Kelly, shh. Calm down a bit here, Kelly. Let me answer the question."
Yeah, he really doesn't care for the ladies, does he? Maybe that is why, on his presidential campaign website, there are many ways you can support his run -- as an Iowan for Rand, a Lawyer for Rand, a Musician for Rand, a (sweet Jesus) Jewish for Rand -- but a Woman for Rand? Nope, that's not an option. Maybe even his advisers understand "current history" shows there's no point in that.
