At the 2007 Family Research Council Washington Briefing, Rep. Ron Paul navigated through a series of ultra-awkward encounters on his way to talk to the press. The first questioner is Max Blumenthal , a liberal journalist (son of Sidney) who brings a camera and mic to conservative events to ask uncomfortable questions. The second man, name unknown, wanted Paul on the record on whether liberals do the devil's work. The third man, fringe presidential candidate Daniel Imperato , made a desperate attempt to form a rapport with Paul by talking about a shared friend who may or may not actually exist.
