That blur in the striped shirt is Rand Paul running away (with his beer).
Sen. Rand Paul has a perfectly ridiculous excuse for his hilarious flight
from DREAMers Erika Andiola and Cesar Vargas, who wanted to have a chat with him and the House's leader on immigration, Rep. Steve King. He, um, oh yeah, he had another interview to do
The Kentucky Republican on Tuesday evening said that just minutes before that video began, a reporter asked him for an interview while he was eating. “And I said, I need to take a couple more bites and we’ll do an interview,” Paul said on Fox News. “And then I was told we had to leave and I had to do the interview, so actually, I stood 10 feet from the people who were doing sort of a kamikaze interview, and I stood 10 feet from them and did another interview.”
“I’ve always done an interview on immigration,” he added later. “I’m very open to discussing that I think there should be some kind of immigration reform,” he said, before pivoting to criticize President Barack Obama for taking executive action on immigration reform.
Well, I'm convinced. Though Andiola and Vargas don't look much like suicide bombers to me, but I guess they could be that scary up close. I do wonder if he found the time to drink that beer he took with him when he was running away from the interview.
