Rand Paul: ‘I Don’t Think We’d Have Survived’ Confrontation With Protesters Without Police

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) is expressing his appreciation for the police after he and his wife were confronted by protesters while they were leaving the White House after the president’s acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention on Thursday night.

Appearing on Fox News on Friday, Paul detailed his experience and explained if it were not for law enforcement he is not sure he and his wife would have been safe.

Paul explained they decided to walk from the White House back to their hotel, and after they walked one block, they were met with a “mob” of 30 people.

“They all of a sudden saw me right as we got to the policeman fortunately or I don’t think we’d have survived,” Paul said.

He added, “We got to the policeman and the policeman I don’t think recognized me, and as they came closer, they were shouting my name, the crowd doubled to 60, and then it doubled again to 120.”

Watch the encounter below:

Paul said the policemen were forming a “barricade” with their bodies.

He claimed the crowd grew larger and began yelling threats, trying to push through the police to get to him, and grabbing at them.

Paul noted protesters were yelling, “Say her name,” about Breonna Taylor, a Black woman killed by police in March in Kentucky.

He argued the “irony is lost on these idiots” because he is the author of the “Justice for Breonna Taylor Act,” legislation designed to prohibit no-knock warrants.

“I promise you had we not had the D.C. police to support us, we are thankful that we have police and we’ve got to wake up. We can’t have the whole country, we can’t have Joe Biden rule the country and have no police,” Paul said.

He added, “We can’t walk down the street in D.C. safely now. That’s how bad it is.”

  1. At least I add something to the conversation general confuction. What we can do without is you and your communist/fascist party.

  2. Thanks, Confused Boob The Projectionist, for adding so much to this conversation. I don’t know what we would have done without it.

  3. I know that logic confuses general confuction and dreg and all the other trolls and assholes on these comment sites but the lies and deceit that you push are far beyond anything that most people will EVER believe. You are in the minority. The fault lies with you communist/fascist assholes who do nothing to stop the rioting, looting, murdering and arson in your blue states and blue cities. You push them to greater destruction by allowing them to continue. You are the problem NOT us. You do not want to stop them because in your pea brains you think this will help you on Nov 3rd. So far it has done the exact opposite. What I suggest is that you get out of your mom’s basement and put down the crack pipe. By the way general confuction, you and your communist/fascist party own ALL the mobs that are committing these treasonous crimes and should be put down with the Insurrection Law permanently. Let’s face the truth, none of you America haters have logic only an agenda to kill America.

  4. So, Trump is and has been president and the violence is Biden’s fault and he is not even elected?
    If not Biden’s it’s Obama’s fault but not Trumps? What the hell are people smoking?

  5. Oh? What happened to Phsyphillis, peenix or Michael or john or…

    You have obviously become even more confused, Confused Boob The Projectionist.

    “because you own the mobs” Confused Boob The Projectionist

    BWAHAHAHAHAHA! I don’t “own” the mobs.
    I “own” YOU all of the time, though. 😀

  6. The only people on this site who are garbage people are tery, general confuction and ed. I really hope that you come to great harm by one of those mobs. That is kind of a long shot because you own the mobs and you only want Americans to suffer with them and not yourselves.

  7. ….CHICKEN MAN !!….Clucking like a rooster thats about to get his….No courage coming out of that rooster….lol…In my opinion

  8. “the streets are supposed to be safe” Walter

    Yes, Walter, for EVERYONE. You, me, black & brown people, innocent people, etc. Nobody laid a finger on Paul. He said that he didn’t think that they were going to kill them. Then he says later that he did think that.

    Also, Paul recently voted AGAINST an anti-lynching bill. Come on, he is a piece of shit and has been for years. He needs to be eliminated from politics. Sooner the better.

  9. Our Cities are now ruled by mobs of mental midgets. How would these vapid basement dwellers feel if a mob of their size accosted Nancy Pelosi, or AOC, or any other Democrat politician?

  10. “There was no reason for Paul to be there except as a photo-op.”
    Excuse the hell out of me, but the streets are supposed to be safe, even for politicians!
    What happened to social distancing? What happened to th rule of law! What is wrong with you Tery, General Confusion, and Ed?

  11. There is more footage. This one starts AFTER a cop pushes a spectator and then you do see the spectator push the asshole policeman back.

    There was no reason for Paul to be there except as a photo-op.

    Rand Paul is a garbage person.

  12. this should not happen to anyone, but he put them in peril by choosing to walk into a bad situation. Poor judgement!
