Kelley Paul, wife of Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, decided to light the mainstream media on fire and deliver a scathing burn of epic proportions to all who have used the recent altercation he had with a neighbor — which left him with six broken ribs — to push their own political agenda.

Paul penned a column for CNN, which she started out by saying, “The average person takes 20,000 breathes a day. Since November 3, my husband, Rand Paul, has not taken a single one without pain. He has not had a single night’s sleep uninterrupted by long periods of difficult breathing or excruciating coughing.”

She continued on adding, “There have been several nights where I had my hand on my phone ready to call 911 when his breathing became so labored it was terrifying.”

Sounds pretty darn horrifying, doesn’t it? That’s what makes the attitude of the media and many leftists on social media so atrocious. They care very little about Paul as an actual human being. Instead, they seem him as just another political opponent. It’s disgusting.

The Kentucky senator recently made the journey back to Washington, despite the fact he was running a fever of 102. The following day he was officially diagnosed with pneumonia in the damaged lung, adding insult to injury.

One of the reasons Mrs. Paul decided to take action and pen a piece addressing the media was due to reports published in many major news outlets that seemed to twist up the facts and point the finger at Rand for the assault.

On this particular point she wrote, “It is incredibly hurtful that some news outlets have victimized Rand a second time as he struggles to recover, delighting in hateful headlines like “Not A Perfect Neighbor,” and concocting theories about an “ongoing dispute,” based on nothing more than speculation from an attention-seeking person with no knowledge of anything to do with us.”

“The fact is, neither Rand nor I have spoken to the attacker in 10 years (since before his wife and children moved away) other than a casual wave from the car. Nobody in our family has, nor have we communicated with anyone in his family.

She went on to say, “This was not a “scuffle,” a “fight” or an “altercation,” as many in the media falsely describe it. It was a deliberate, blindside attack. The impact left Rand with six broken ribs, three displaced, pleural effusion and now pneumonia. This has been a terrible experience; made worse by the media’s gleeful attempts to blame Rand for it, ridiculing him for everything from mowing his own lawn to composting.”

Boucher has pleaded not guilty to the charges of misdemeanor assault, and a statement from his attorney indicated that his client would handle the situation much more “diplomatically” if he could have a redo.

Unfortunately for him, there are no redos in this scenario, so he’s going to have to live with his actions from this day forward, knowing he did permanent damage to another human being for really no other reason than the man’s political views being different than his own.
