1. They left out the part where Rand Paul fled the interview.

That was a telling moment. He got up and fled, after taking one bite out of a burger, when this woman showed up and said she was a Dreamer. Poof....Rand's outa there.

See it here, and on many other sites:

4. I don't think that was a big deal.

He had other things to do, and he's entitled to that. He's also entitled, and obligated, at some time, actually to discuss Dreamers' issue.

10. Cool. You can give Rand Paul the benefit of the doubt.

I have no such responsibility. I saw the video. He was clearly leaving because the "Dreamer" showed up. Watch it again.

Oh, yes, I almost forgot: FRP!

11. Then where is the interview he said he did? No doubt someone can find it?

 

Then again, maybe he is a lying sack of shit.

5. His excuse was that he had to do an interview.

How many politicians who have been interviewed many times before and do not desperately need the publicity will take one bite out of a hot sandwich and run off to do yet another interview?

6. Paul was careful to grab his beer

How many politicians conduct interviews holding a glass of beer? Should be simple enough to check Mr. Paul's story, though. Who was the alleged journalist he scampered off to talk with?

8. I love it. He doesn't appear to me to be realizing he just had another appt. After all, he was

settling in to a fresh sandwich...if he were late for an appt. somewhere I doubt if he'd be getting the sandwich to take one bite out of it. Of course, he might have gagged on it because it wasn't any good...it's just funny that it happens the minue the young woman says she's a dreamer...

9. That's what I thought, too.

Looked to me like he didn't care to be on camera in that situation. "Oops! Uncomfortable! Gotta go!"

2. He was so condescending...

...as he kept asking if they understood "the English language.""

3. Unfortunately it wasn't a 'conversation,'

neither of the participants actually conversed. It was/is frustrating.
