Well, this was a rather awkward moment. NBC reporter Kasie Hunt described the assault on Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) as “one of her favorite stories.” Of course, this isn’t the best phrase to describe this incident, with Hunt trying to correct herself on air but opting to continue with her report. She concluded that Paul’s assault by neighbor, Rene Boucher, was caused by a landscaping dispute, declaring that as the reason for the attack. This was not a simple push and shove. Paul was severely injured, with six broken ribs (via Politico):
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said Wednesday he had sustained six broken ribs and a build-up of fluids between his chest and lungs as a result of an altercation with a neighbor last Friday, revealing additional maladies about the previously reported incident.
"I appreciate all of the support from everyone. A medical update: final report indicates six broken ribs & new X-ray shows a pleural effusion," Paul tweeted. The pleural effusion, which was previously undisclosed, results in a buildup of fluids around the lungs.
A top adviser for the senator had previously announced Paul had only sustained five broken ribs, including "three displaced fractures."
Doug Stafford, Paul's chief political strategist, had previously cautioned that the senator's condition could prove more severe than the initial prognosis.
Displaced rib fractures can lead to life-threatening injuries such as: hemopneumothorax, pneumothorax, pneumonia, internal bleeding, laceration of internal organs and lung contusions. Senator Paul does have lung contusions currently, Stafford said Sunday. This type of injury is also accompanied by severe pain that can last weeks to months.
Boucher is expected to face federal charges over the assault. Yet, there have been multiple reports disputing the landscaping claim. Still, and yes, we’re still playing this game, if a Democrat got the crap kicked out of him (or her) over grass clippings, “favorite story” probably wouldn’t be the descriptor—though we would have a lot of interesting takes about how all of this was somehow Trump’s fault. Oh wait:
Look no further than 'Rand Paul was asking for it' to see why these outlets are absolutely despised pic.twitter.com/SmR6ZIY6cK— Stephen Miller (@redsteeze) November 20, 2017
Liberals are very stupid!! Proof positive, but once again.
Just further shows how despicable the media is. There is no bottom as to how low they will stoop. She needs to be fired from MSNBC.
Other favorites of hers were the Scalise shooting, the Vegas shooting, and the migrant rapes in Sweden.
If it’s from anyone at CNN or MSNBC it can automatically be assumed to be a lie.
If on one of those rare occasions it isn’t, well, even a stopped clock is right twice a day.
Crap like this is why I refuse to do business with Comcast/Xfinity.
here she is as a kid.
I find it funny for a different reason.
She resembles Parker Posey. Which is not a bad thing.
Altercation sounds so equitable with some give and take in the fight, as opposed to an attack from behind like it was.

ED SCHULTZ (01:59): I just want all of you to know that I get my entertainment through NewsBusters. (laughs, then in mincing voice)
How dare [we] Democrats make fun of Dick Cheneys heart problems and turn it into a political football. (back to normal voice, to the extent possible) I can just hear some little weasel whos writing that at NewsBusters. Youre my entertainment.
Bozell, Bozell and his bozo crew. Youre damn right, Dick Cheneys hearts a political football. We ought to rip it out and kick it around and stuff it back in him. Im glad he didnt tip over. He is the new poster child for health care in this country.
Don’t forget the death of Antonin Scalia....
If once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny, consume you it will.
