Rand Paul in Contentious Interview with Stephanopoulos: "Where Do You Get Your Talking Points? The DNC?" - Video
NOTE: Sorry for the video trouble earlier.
Here is video of Kentucky GOP U.S. Senate candidate Rand Paul in an interview with George Stephanopoulos where he defended himself against the hatchet-job attacks launched on him by the media since his nomination victory.
Stephanopoulos started with a long diatribe against Paul, who began his response with "Good Morning, George. Good Morning, Robin (Roberts). When does my honeymoon period begin?"
Paul said he has been "trashed" ever since his nomination earlier this week, and said these are "DNC talking points" being used against him.
He later asked Stephanopoulos point blank, "Where do you get your talking points? The Democrat National Committee?"
Paul said he has never favored repeal of the Civil Rights Act, and challenged Stephanopoulos to "bring me on with Senator (Robert) Byrd, and we'll talk about how he filibustered the Civil Rights Act. . ."
Paul did an outstanding job here handling the hostile press. It was a mistake for him to go on a show like Rachel Maddow, because he should have known that would be a total ambush. But he made a very nice recovery here.
