Rand Paul accuses the media of hiding a key detail about the GOP baseball attacker
Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) made a stunning revelation about what an attacker yelled as he fired on Republican members of Congress playing baseball in Virginia in a harrowing 2017 attack.
“I was there at the ball field when Steven Scalise (R-La.) almost died from a very, very angry violent man who was incited really by Rhetoric on the left,” Paul said.
“And this hasn’t been reported enough,” he continued, “when he came on the field with a semi-automatic weapon firing probably close to 200 shots at us, shooting five people and almost killing Steve Scalise, he was yelling ‘this is for healthcare.’”
“He also had a list of conservative legislators, republicans, in his pocket that he was willing to kill,” he added.
“So what happens is that when Democrats say ‘get up in their face,’ they need to realize that there are a lot of unstable people out there,” Paul explained. “There are people with anger issues, there are people who are prone to violence.”
