Senator Rand Paul is finding out first-hand just how violent an anti-Trump liberal can be.
Rand was “blindsided” and attacked at his home in Kentucky on Friday afternoon, according to local news reports.
Kentucky State Police responded to Rand’s residence at 3:21 p.m., according to news reports.
59 year-old neighbor Rene Albert Boucher was arrested and charged with assault. Rand is said to have suffered minor injuries. The attack appears to have been a sucker-punch.
Boucher is a registered Democrat and a known anti-Trumper. The suspect has shared social media posts calling the Republican Party the most dangerous institution in “world history.”
More from Daily Caller:
“Senator Paul was blindsided and the victim of an assault,” Kelsey Cooper, Paul’s communications director in Kentucky said in a statement to the Bowling Green Daily News.
“The assailant was arrested and it is now a matter for the police. Senator Paul is fine.”
Boucher was taken to Warren County Detention Center.
His bond is listed at $5,000 and a court date has not been set.
According to the Bowling Green Daily News, Boucher was awarded a patent in 2003 for a pain relief product called a Therm-a-Vest. Boucher sold the device on QVC in 2005, according to a news report at the time.
A Facebook account that appears to be maintained by Boucher contains numerous anti-Donald Trump postings.
On May 17, Boucher posted, “May Robert Mueller fry Trump’s gonads,” a reference to the former FBI director’s investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian government.
Rand has now been shot-at and physically assaulted by a pair of crazed Democrats over the past year!
