In an interview with Today Show host Savannah Guthrie, 2016 presidential candidate Rand Paul gets overly heated over a question about whether or not his views on foreign policy have calmed down over the years.
You have had views in the past on foreign policy that are somewhat unorthodox,” Guthrie said, referring to Iran, Israeli aid, and defense spending. “But you seemed to have changed.
After being well-known for lashing out on interviewers in the past, Paul immediately goes off on Guthrie arguing that she should have had a better approach when making such statements (an approach that didn’t offend him, of course).
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 a better way to approach it. You’ve editorialized,” Paul says after interrupting Guthrie in the middle of her sentence.
In addition to his disrespectful antics, Paul then acts completely annoyed when Guthrie brings up a previous statement he made in 2007 in which he claimed that Iran was not a threat.
2007 was a long time ago and events do change over long periods of time,” Paul said. “We’re talking about a time when I wasn’t running for office and I was helping somebody else run for office.
Word of advice to Rand Paul: If you can’t take the heat, stay out of the kitchen (or in this case the presidential election).
