Rand Paul gets bitchy with NBC’s Savannah Guthrie. Serious character flaws here. Paul clashed with NBC’s “Today” show co-anchor Savannah Guthrie over his previous statements on Iran, aid to Israel and defence spending.
“Why don’t we let me explain instead of talking over me, OK?” “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.” “No, no, you’ve editorialized,” Paul said when Guthrie interjected to ask if his views had changed. “No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no,” Paul said. “Listen, you’ve editorialized.”
Asked about his statements in 2007 that Iran wasn’t a nuclear threat, Paul acknowledged his position had shifted.
“2007 was a long time ago and events do change over long periods of time. So we’re talking about 8 years ago. We’re talking about a time when I wasn’t running for office and I was helping someone else run for office,” he said.
“There has always been a threat around gaining nuclear weapons and that’s greater now than it was many years ago.”
