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.”

“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!
