Savannah Guthrie – Rand Paul Interview Gone Wrong – Was Guthrie Bullied?
Savannah Guthrie interviewed Senator Rand Paul on The Today Show on April 8, 2015, following his recent announcement he will be running for President of the United States. At least that’s what it was supposed to be. Instead Paul tried to make it a lesson on how he should be interviewed. The end result, Savannah Guthrie was trending on twitter and Rand lost millions of votes for his bully like ways.
The interview was moving along when Guthrie pointed out that Rand Paul’s view point has seemed to change over the years, saying,
“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 wanted to drastically wanted to cut defense spending and now you want to increase it 16%. So I just wonder if you have mellowed out.”
Of course, you couldn’t completely hear Guthrie because Rand was too busy speaking over her saying, no, no, no.
Rand then ranted,
“Why don’t we let me explain rather than 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 then asked, “Have you changed your opinion?” Guthrie was then interrupted by Paul saying, “No no, no, no, no, no that would be sort of a better way to approach it.” You’ve editorialized – let me answer a question. You ask a question and you say, “have your views changed instead of editorializing and saying, ‘your views have changed.'”
Rand answered the questions but viewers didn’t hear him because they were too busy slamming him on twitter saying things like:
“Sen. Paul also accused Savannah Guthrie of “talking over him” when he kept interrupting her questions. He was rude, snide, arrogant.”
“Rand Paul, you literally JUST started campaigning, so it is probably not a good idea to scream at Savannah Guthrie on National TV.”
