Rand Paul Takes the High Road After Paul Pelosi Assault

Paul Pelosi, husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, was violently assaulted early Friday morning by a man who entered his home. Pelosi was severely injured after the man took control of a hammer and is currently recovering in the hospital. No word yet on how Pelosi's heavy security detail failed to prevent the attack from occurring.

Republican Senator Rand Paul, who has been a repeated victim of violent political attacks, is wishing Pelosi a speedy recovery. Paul issued a statement of well wishes on Twitter, despite Pelosi's daughter previously saying he deserved to have his ribs broken by a leftist neighbor back in 2018. 

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's daughter suggested the man who attacked Sen. Rand Paul in 2018 was justified in doing so.

"Rand Paul’s neighbor was right," Christine Pelosi tweeted on Sunday, hours after the Kentucky Republican revealed he tested positive for COVID-19.

The younger Pelosi's reaction was a reference to when Paul's Bowling Green neighbor, Rene Boucher, was charged with assaulting a member of Congress after tackling Paul while he was mowing his lawn two years ago. The senator suffered five broken ribs as a result and required surgery to have part of his lung removed.

Law enforcement officials gave an update on the details of the assault Friday afternoon. At the time of their remarks, a motive was not known.
