Highlights from Rand Paul’s Testy CNBC Interview

BY:

Sen. Rand Paul (R., Ky.) went on the defensive over his statement on vaccines being "voluntary" and his bipartisan proposal with Sen. Barbara Boxer (D., Calif.) to allow domestic companies to bring home their foreign earnings on a one-time holiday of a tax rate of 6.5 percent.

When host Kelly Evans asked Paul about the expense of it all and to make the percentage permanent, Paul told Evans she was wrong. The interview quickly got weird from there, when Paul proceeded to shush Evans multiple times when she tried to ask questions to clarify his response.

"Calm down there, Kelly," Paul said, raising his finger to his lips to shush her.

Just when Evans thought Paul was finished with his statement, she began to ask another question–and Paul jumped all over her, begging her to quiet down so that he could answer the question.

"You’ve taken an interview and you’ve made an interview into something where we’ve gotten useful information because you were argumentative," Paul said. You don’t interview Rand Paul; Rand Paul interviews you.
