Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., tried to be civil during an interview with CNBC host Kelly Evans–but at one point was so visibly frustrated with the host and how she was phrasing her questions, he shushed her, telling her to calm down.
This occurred when she attempted to interrupt him during one of his answers; and when he didn’t let her, he put his finger to his lips and shushed her. She couldn’t help but laugh and allowed him to speak.
“Calm down a bit here Kelly, let me answer the question,” he said.
The interview only became more stressed; and by the end of it, when Evans asked the senator about a potential 2016 bid, he lectured the host a little more.
“We’re thinking about it and we’re looking around the United States and seeing if the message resonates,” Paul said of his potential presidential candidacy. “Part of the problem is that you end up having interviews like this where the interview is so slanted and full of distortions that you don’t get useful information. I think this is what’s bad about TV sometimes so, frankly, I think, if we do this again, you need to try to start out with a little more objectivity going into the interview.”
Evans took it in stride and said she would try her best moving forward and hoped he would come back to give them the chance.
