Protesters Swarm Rand and Kelly Paul After RNC Event

Following the Thursday night Republican National Convention, Senator Rand Paul and his wife Kelly Paul were swarmed by Black Lives Matter protesters after attempting to leave the event.

The entire confrontation was recorded by Jack Murphy in a 17 minute clip who stated that he had cautioned Paul to walk a different direction, but still attempted to continue to his destination.

In the video, protesters surround and chant at the Pauls until police show up to escort them to their hotel, using their bicycles as buffers between the senator and the protesters. Along the way, Kelly Paul appeared to lose a shoe which was taken by a protester and waved in the Senator’s face.

Clearer video from the incident also emerged showing a police officer protecting the Pauls being shoved and falling backwards, with Rand Paul stopping to steady the officer and prevent him from falling over backwards. 

Watch the short clip below.

Senator Paul Tweeted following the incident.
