Well, that didn't take long.

If you had one day into the campaign in your "when will Rand Paul have another CNBC moment with a female interviewer," you won.

"Why don't you let me explain instead of talking over me," replied Paul, before repeatedly accusing Guthrie of "editorializing."

Then he gave her some free journalism advice: "Before we go through a litany of things you say I've changed on, why don't you ask me a question, 'Have I changed my opinion?' That would be better way to approach an interview."

Watch the entire interview below.
