Rand Paul Confronted By Protestors after Republican National Convention, Claims He Was ‘Attacked by an angry mob’ – VIDEO

U.S. Sen. Rand Paul one of the more controversial members of the GOP party was surrounded by a group of vocal protesters overnight which he hyperbolically stated “threatened his life” as he was heading back to his hotel in Washington D.C. from the White House following the conclusion of the Republican National Convention.

“Just got attacked by an angry mob of over 100, one block away from the White House,” Paul wrote in a tweet at 1:39 a.m. Friday. “Thank you to @DCPoliceDept for literally saving our lives from a crazed mob.”

Videos show protesters surrounding Paul and his wife, Kelley, on a crowded block in Washington D.C. Protesters are chanting “no justice, no peace” and “say her name, Breonna Taylor.”

In Paul’s home state of Kentucky, protesters in Louisville have been marching for more than 90 days to demand justice for Breonna Taylor, the 26-year-old Black woman and emergency room technician who was unarmed when killed by police inside her home in March.
