Ron Paul Walks Out of CNN Interview

CNN’s Gloria Borger‘s interview with GOP presidential candidate Rep. Ron Paul came to an end as Paul began taking off his mic. Borger badgered him with questions about racially charged comments included in newsletters that carried his name in the 1980s and 1990s. It came a day after CNN’s Ali Velshi asked Paul about.

“These things are pretty incendiary,” said Borger. “Because of people like you,” shot back Paul.

“I appreciate you answering the questions and you understand it’s our job to ask them,” said Borger.
