Rand Paul took such command of the interview with Chuck Todd that Congressman Jim Himes (D-CT) had to scold Todd after saying he needed to "de-combust" his head after listening.
Chuck Todd's interview with Rand Paul was an embarrassment not only for Todd but for the corporate mainstream media. It is clear that the tepidity with which they deal with Republicans and neo-liberals is a detriment to truthful, accurate, in-depth, and meaningful coverage Americans can depend on which allows them to make objective decisions and choices.
It is clear that Chuck Todd was either willfully or maybe purposely ignorant or out of his league with the multifaceted narrative that the GOP will use successfully with enough of the American populace. Why? Because we have a media ready to acquiesce to whataboutism, chumminess with the characters, and timidity.
The interview with Rand Paul, as usual, was drawn out by his effective wordiness to kill time and constantly keep Chuck Todd off keel. Below is the excerpt with the important parts along with Jim Himes' respectful scolding of Todd.Rand Paul owned Chuck Todd in Interview
