Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., told “Fox & Friends” he believes he would have been killed if not for the police when he and his wife were surrounded and attacked by a “mob” yelling threats and pushing police upon exiting the White House after President Trump’s acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention (RNC) Thursday night.
“It was horrific,” the Republican senator — who had part of his lung removed due to a complication from the 2017 assault by his neighbor — told host Steve Doocy of the “unhinged” mob that continued to get bigger and bigger.
“They’re attempting to push the police over to get to me, so at one point they push a policeman backwards, he stumbles and he’s trying to catch his balance and I catch the back of his flak jacket to stabilize him to make sure he’s OK because he’s our defense,” Paul explained. “If he’s down, the mob’s loose on us.”
Just got attacked by an angry mob of over 100, one block away from the White House. Thank you to @DCPoliceDept for literally saving our lives from a crazed mob.

“I truly believe this with every fiber of my being, had they gotten at us they would have gotten us to the ground, we might not have been killed, might just have been injured by being kicked in the head, or kicked in the stomach until we were senseless,” he explained.
The Pauls were unharmed, but the senator is still calling on the FBI to make arrests and conduct an investigation into the “interstate criminal traffic being paid for across state lines” because people have already been killed in other cities.
Not surprising Marxist Democrat mods act line Nazi brown-shirts.
And what, may I ask, was this “mob” there to protest?
Were they from the “peaceful protest” party that ‘sometimes’ veeerrryyyyy rarely break into riots?
Or where these Trump supporters?
I can guarantee that they were democrats? how do I know? because no-where in the article does it say what they were there for!
President Trump needs to crack down in every city with federal marshals and make hundreds of arrests per night and get those 204 federal judges to prosecute quickly before November. Convicts can’t vote.
WAS THIS ON CNN-IS THIS ALSO TRUMPS FAULT??
LETS HEAR WHAT THE DUMMYCRATS SAY O THIS ONE???
I guess now he knows what it is like to feel like an African American.
We are mistaking freedom of speech for revolution. When they walk the streets heavily armed and wearing vests Challenging authority and no one stops it
That’s revolution and attempt to over throw the government that’s revolution.
It’s time to put a stop to it
Blame the Democrats for this vicious heinous attack
Oh if this would ever happen to Joe Biden & Co. the media would be all over it ANIMALS!!! LOOTERS!! THIEVES!! We need Trump and Republicans now more then ever!!
Kollel faker is right. This is revolution. This is anarchy. This is totally unrelated to peaceful protests. And it’s the gov’t that needs to dismantle these riots, and lock up every single rioter. BEFORE PEOPLE GET KILLED!
Swings, you are lying through your lying teeth. There are of course places in the USA (mostly black areas) that are dangerous, because they’re infested by criminals, and where anyone would feel at least some fear of being attacked or murdered; but there is nowhere in the USA where being black makes that fear any greater.
Swings, what is your stupid moronic point ? That innocent people should be harassed and brutalized because Democrats historically mistreated black people in the past? Why don;t you use analogy of Jews being treated similarly by Nazis on the streets of Europe in 30’s?
