A less stupid form of your example would be, midday during your free time, you are questioned, "Did you murder someone?" You answer calmly and politely, "Nope."
You are woken up early in the morning, "Did you murder someone?" "No I didn't ******* murder someone! Why the **** are you bothering me with this dumb shit? Leave me the **** alone!"
To summarize, being annoyed or pissed off by the timing of something does not mean you have a problem with that thing in itself. I'm willing to bet that if they would've brought him in for testing during lunch or after, he'd have no problem with it.
And a murder example is such a horrible comparison. But if i knew i didnt do anything and they were coming in to my house and waking me up in the morning every month or so to take a lie detector test. That would be EXTREMELY annoying.
Rory Macdonald is not trying to pull out of it. He is just pointing out that being woken up randomly early in the morning is annoying. Which what person in his right mind wouldn't be annoyed by that??

Yup i said the same thing.

You guys said everything i said but maybe in slightly better wording.
Rory is doing nothing wrong here. People who are ragging on him because of this are doing so because they have their minds already made up on him and they basically want him to pop positive so they can be right.
