In the heat of the moment, you may feel like calling out the rude behavior. However, you need to remember to remain professional even if the other party doesn't. Continue answering the questions, remain polite, and get ready to head out the door.
If the rudeness reaches a completely unacceptable level, you can always excuse yourself from the interview early. This is a good option if the employer becomes abusive or obscene. You should only use this option in extreme cases. Remember, an interviewer may not show off the best side of the company, so it may be worth it for you to stick out the interviewer.
You can also choose to turn down the job should it get offered to you. Even though you know the interviewer may be a bad apple, your interaction may still be enough to make you want to avoid the company at all costs.
