Rand Paul is a terrible sexist.
At least, that’s what the mainstream media and his critics would have Americans believe, claiming that Paul is responsible for a series of “testy interview performances with female reporters.”
Of course, anyone with half a brain is able to see that Paul is not sexist, and is merely calling out whoever attempts to falsely portray his policies and stances on important issues.
Paul does not discriminate between male and female interviewers, and he certainly does not back off or play nice just because his interviewer is a woman.
Indeed, as Paul himself has noted, to do so would actually be sexist.
Earlier this week, Paul told CNN’s “State of the Union” that it would be “sexist” to think Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton should not be treated as aggressively as a man.
“I think that that would be a sexist response to say, ‘Oh my goodness, she deserves not to be treated as aggressively because she’s only a woman,’” Paul said, adding “I would never say that about anybody.”
“I’m always polite, and even in all the interviews where I’m accused of maybe being too aggressive. I’ve never yelled or screamed. I don’t get out of control. I do try to be polite and have always treated it that way. I would treat her with the same respect I would treat a man,” said Paul of Clinton.
“I don’t come into our interview thinking, ‘Okay, it’s a woman vs. a man kind of interview.’ I just think she’s going to ask tough questions, he’s going to ask tough questions. I gotta be prepared,” he further noted regarding interviewers.
In a separate appearance this week, Paul also repeated comments he previously made regarding the hypocrisy of Hillary Clinton when it comes to women’s rights and equality.
Paul called out the media for not reporting on the fact that although Clinton has projected herself as a women’s rights candidate, her Foundation accepts donations from countries where women are treated on a par with or worse than animals.
“There’s going to be stuff coming out about the Clinton Foundation and their donations from different companies that get special approval by the Secretary of State” in the next couple of weeks, Paul stated. “Are we going to hear any questions from the media or will it be a lovefest to Hillary Clinton?” Paul asked.
“You ever hear them ask any questions at Hillary Clinton about this money she’s getting, whether it influences her decision[s]? the Senator also noted.
Paul also explained how he fought a losing battle in Congress, proposing to end aid to countries that persecute women and Christians. He only received two votes in support of the proposal, highlighting how most representatives are bought and paid for.
What a damned sexist.
