On Sunday, Sen. Rand Paul’s (R-Ky.) wife responded to a flashback video tweet recalling how one MSNBC host made light of a 2017 assault that blindsided her husband and left him with six broken ribs.

After a vicious attack on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (R-Calif.) husband on Friday, Jason Howerton posted the flashback video in anticipation of left-wing media attempts to blame the attack on Paul Pelosi on right-wing rhetoric:

“I remember when @RandPaul was viciously attacked and an MSNBC anchor accidentally let her true feelings come out: ‘...the incident that left Senator Rand Paul with six broken ribs, this might be one of my favorite stories...’"

Kelley Paul replied:

“I do too, @kasie. I was caring for Rand as he struggled to breathe in terrible pain as you called his attack and injuries ‘one of my favorite stories’ on air. Yet you still have a job.”


On November 20, 2017, MSNBC Host Kasie Hunt did, indeed, call the attack on Sen. Paul one of her “favorite stories,” because the attack was, reported, prompted by a dispute over Paul’s lawn:

“New details today on the incident that left Senator Rand Paul with six broken ribs. 

This might be one of my favorite stories, although, of course, we don't…I wanted, clearly Senator Paul is still struggling. 

Paul's neighbor, Rene Boucher, is accused of beating the senator and 'GQ' reports that lawn care issues may well have been at the heart of the dispute."
