Rand Paul vs. NBC's Savannah Guthrie: "Why Don't You Let Me Explain Instead Of Talking Over Me, Okay?"

|

On Wednesday's morning broadcast of NBC's Today show, Rand Paul clashed with co-host Savannah Guthrie over "editoralizing" previous comments made by the Republican presidential candidate.

SAVANNAH GUTHRIE, NBC NEWS: You have had views in the past on foreign policy that are somewhat unorthodox, but you seem to have changed over the years. You once said Iran was not a threat, now you say it is. You once proposed ending foreign aid to Israel; you now support it, at least for the time being. And you once offered to drastically cut...

SEN. RAND PAUL: No, before we go --

GUTHRIE: Well wait, wait, wait.

[CROSSTALK]

GUTHRIE: So I just wonder if you've mellowed out.

PAUL: Yeah, why don't we let me explain instead of talking over me, okay? 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?

GUTHRIE: Have you changed your opinion?

PAUL: That's a better way to approach it.

GUTHRIE: Okay. Is Iran still not a threat?

PAUL: No, no, no, you've editorialized it. No no no no, listen. You've editorialized. Let me answer a question. You asked a question and you say 'Have your views changed?' instead of editorializing and saying my views have changed.
