One of the Republican senators whines, which is so unattractive in a child or a pet, and completely off-putting in an adult male. Senator Rand Paul acts like a spoiled eighth-grade boy, dragging his tennis shoes as he reluctantly walks. Paul’s next-door neighbor grew so disgusted with him, that he beat the senator up, which must have brought him a great deal of relief.

Some on Twitter claim videos show Paul sat for most of the standing ovation the Senate gave the medal-winning Capitol police officer who saved innumerable legislators’ lives.

Finally, Paul very, very reluctantly stood. As a result, many called Paul a “liar.”

Back at the Paul homestead, Boucher’s attorney Matt Baker said, according to The Salon:

‘Dr. Boucher is going to accept his punishment and he has sincerely apologized to the Pauls again today. He wants to put this behind him.’

The Kentucky junior senator tweeted a comment that was belied by the video right beneath it:

‘There is no bigger supporter of the Capitol Police than me. They saved our lives on the ball field. Yesterday I stood and cheered and clapped as we awarded the Congressional Gold Medal to Officer Goodman. Any deceptive media edits are from lying scum bags.’

As the Senate clapped and after Paul managed to drag his body out of his chair and into a standing slump, the one-time presidential candidate neither clapped nor cheered.

Back in 2017, the one-time presidential candidate came to work with a black eye and “multiple broken ribs and later underwent lung and hernia surgeries that he linked to the attack,” according to The Detroit News. 

NBC explained what happened:

‘Earlier accounts of the incident suggested bad blood between the neighbors, who have known each other for roughly 17 years, including a dispute over a property line and possible distaste for Paul’s politics, as well as those of his father, former Texas Rep. Ron Paul.’

Well aware of all of this, Paul built an untidy brush pile on the two men’s property line, and Dr. Rene Boucher just lost it. He ended up serving jail time for his offense. His attorney Matt Baker said:

‘Dr. Boucher is going to accept his punishment and he has sincerely apologized to the Pauls again today. He wants to put this behind him.’

Boucher served eight months of jail time and six months on house arrest. He also paid “$580,000 in damages and medical expenses.”

Paul claimed he “feared for his life.” He said he could not breathe. That was due to Boucher knocking the breath out of him.

His father was a twelve-term U.S. Representative, Ron Paul of Texas. Paul senior ran for president three times, in 1988, 2008, and in 2012.

What is wrong with the Republicans? Boucher has since sold his home.

Twitter world went nuts over Paul’s hypocrisy. Take a look at some of our favorites below
