You may have noticed on that video I posted recently of Steve King being a douchebag to a young Latina that Rand Paul made a hasty exit the moment she showed up. He’s now offered two completely different explanations for why he did it. His first excuse was that it had nothing to do with the woman, he just had to go to an interview:
SEN. RAND PAUL: Now you know my life, my life on the campaign trail. But about five minutes before that or two minutes before that the video doesn’t show that another reporter came up and said will you do an interview. And I said I need to take a couple more bites and we’ll do an interview, and then I was told we had to leave and I had to do the interview.
But now he says he just didn’t want any part of the situation because he didn’t want to be “filmed and berated” by someone who was here illegally.
Explaining his departure Wednesday during a radio interview in Iowa, Paul said, “I’ll be honest with you, I’m not interested in being filmed and berated by people who broke the law and are here illegally to try and convince me about policy.”
So he Rand. He Rand so far away-ay-ay.
