It’s open season on Republican lawmakers.
First, a Bernie Sanders-supporting clown shot up a Congressional baseball practice which left Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) nearly dead.
Now, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is faced with potentially life-threatening injuries after being tackled to the ground by a person whom you’d have to imagine voted for Hillary Clinton.
From BizPac Review:
The man responsible for attacking Sen. Rand Paul Friday afternoon was an avowed liberal who frequently fought with his neighbors about politics, according to a report Sunday from The Washington Post.
Local citizens say Rene Boucher, the 59-year-old man who assaulted Paul, was a socialist who frequently fought with neighbors about health care policies and other liberal issues. Boucher and Paul, a Republican from Kentucky, are on the opposite end of the political spectrum, they told reporters.
Paul’s injuries were far worse than initially reported. He has lung contusions, or bruises, caused by the broken ribs, Doug Stafford, Paul’s chief of staff, said in a statement Sunday. The type of fractures the senator sustained can cause other significant medical problems, including internal bleeding and pneumonia.
The liberal mainstream media reported Paul suffered ‘minor’ injuries.
One person notes Paul’s injuries can be ‘life threatening.’
3 of them are displaced fractures. Can be life threatening. This is NOT minor injury. https://t.co/kbjeAcKsOk

"misdemeanor fourth-degree assault with a minor injury" "minor" means different things, I guess

Five BROKEN RIBS? So much for minor injuries. Attacker should go to prison for a long damn time. https://t.co/rLVGfJcCjf

If the shoe were on the other foot, the MSM would never – ever – stop talking about these two happenings.
Since Republicans were the ones affected, they move on quickly.
What a shame.
Hang in there, Rand. We’re rooting for you!
