Rand Paul Clashes with ‘Today’ Host Savannah Guthrie in Interview about Foreign Policy

On Wednesday, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), a candidate for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, made an appearance from Nashua, NH on NBC’s “Today” to discuss his candidacy.

Co-host Savannah Guthrie took aim at Paul, suggesting he had changed his foreign policy stances, which drew the ire of Paul who insisted she was improperly framing her questions.

“Why don’t we let me explain instead of talking over me, OK?” Paul said. “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?’ That would be sort of a better way to approach an interview.”

Guthrie referred to a 2007 statement attributed to Paul, which he said Iran wasn’t a nuclear threat. The junior Kentucky senator acknowledge he had changed, but pointed out that circumstances had changed as well.

“2007 was a long time ago and events do change over long periods of time,” Paul said. “So we’re talking about 8 years ago. We’re talking about a time when I wasn’t running for office and I was helping someone else run for office.”
