MSNBC Spin Paul vs. Maddow Transcript

He shouldn’t be on a smear show anyway.

I’ve noticed a few recent news articles are reporting Rand had the following exchange with Rachel Maddow.

Maddow: Do you think that a private business has the right to say, “We don’t serve black people”?

Paul: Yes. I’m not in favor of any discrimination of any form…

If you go to the video however, Rand obviously never said the word “yes”. Here it is, cued up to the exact moment:

It was merely some sort of insignificant vocalization to maintain the flow of conversation that was already made difficult by the satellite delay. Now he WAS laying out what the arguments would be for “yes”, but he never actually said “yes”. It makes a BIG difference to insert that word there.
