Rand Paul Responds To His "Cut and Run." "I Didn't Cut and Run?

" never know what you are gonna get."

Yesterday, I published a Daily GOP Ignominious related to Steve King (R-IA) and Rand Paul's (R-KY) interaction with a DREAMer official and an immigration activist who is also a DREAMer. While I indicate yesterday's Ignominious included both King and Paul, you must look really fast to find Paul in the embed video; Paul appeared to run from the DREAMers as if they were infected with the EBOLA virus.    "Watch Paul Run" or "Twitter video."

As in yesterday;s piece MSNBC ran a quick response from Paul and his excuse for the quick exit. (Paraphrased by The Pardu) "What you don't know is prior to the sandwich I had agreed to an interview and had asked for a moment for a sandwich."

"About two minutes before that, the video doesn't show that another reporter came up and said 'will you do an interview,'" Paul explained on Fox News' "On The Record." "And I said, 'I need to take a couple more bites and we'll do an interview.' And then I was told we had to leave and I had to do the interview. So actually, I stand about ten feet from those people, who were doing sort of a kamikaze interview, and I stood ten feet from them and did another interview."
Fox News, of course, has provided an on-camera opportunity for Paul to do what he does best: deflect, lie and misrepresent.  Despite clear evidence of his un-comfort and the complete abandonment of his burger after one bite, along with  a nonverbal indicator of "lets go" from an aide, Paul goes on Fox with misrepresentation.  

Watch at the 4:15 mark of Great Van Sustren's segment. 

Let's face reality. Fox News managers and producers know of Paul's history of subterfuge and shenanigans. The know Paul has publicly stated an affinity for the occasional need for misrepresentation. People (potential voters) should ask themselves a key question.

"Why does Fox run defense for Paul?  

"Why does Paul run from the DREAMers if he seriously wants to be president of the United States.

"Isn't it uncharacteristic for anyone who aspires to the US President to cut and run like a frightened insect?
