Rand Paul Belittles Female CNBC Host During Tough Interview

Senator Rand Paul got angry from some aggressive questioning from CNBC host Kelly Evans and pulled a typical misogynist move.

CNBC anchor Kelly Evans confronted Sen. Rand Paul on a host of issues including the flair up of anti-vaxxers versus immunizing your children monday afternoon. (Scarce posted the video here.)

The entire interview became very heated because she dared to question him on some of his economic strategies and it culminated into Rand shushing her on camera. Such a nice man.

Of course he feels right at home shushing her to be quiet because he's a man and a woman shouldn't ever get too excited.

Paul: Well that is incorrect. Let's go back again. Your premise and your question is mistaken.

Evans: Alright.

Paul: Most of the research doesn't indicate that. In fact, there is a prominent study by Robert Shapiro looking at the holiday in 2005, when we lowered the rate to 5 percent, and his conclusion was that it brought $300 billion of new capital home. And then it brought it about $30 billion of new tax revenue. The whole purpose of doing that is to bring the money home. There's two trillion —

Evans: Right, but it works that first year, senator. But their concern is down the road.

Paul: Hey, let me finish. Hey, hey, Kelly.

Evans: I'm sorry, go ahead.

Paul: Calm down a bit here, Kelly.

Calm down, you silly woman, and let my libertarian nonsense harm more kids and destroy our economy. What a dick.

Afterward Larry Kudlow reminded Evans that her network was "CNBC, not MSNBC," chastising Evans for her unprofessionalism.
