Rand Paul Hurts Every Time He Breathes—Wife

Joe Scudder
Written by Joe Scudder

She says Rand Paul hurts because of a brutal, unprovoked, surprise attack, and from media attacks.

Rand Paul hurts from broken ribs that make breathing hard and coughing “excruciating.” Kelley Paul also says he’s suffering now from opportunistic pneumonia. But Mrs. Paul says that insult has been added to injury by the media claiming that there was some sort of ongoing argument or that the injuries where inflicted as part of an “altercation.”

That was all fake news!

Kelley Paul writes at CNN.com, “Since the attack, my husband Rand Paul hasn’t taken a single breath without pain.

The average person takes 20,000 breaths a day. Since November 3, my husband, Rand Paul, has not taken a single one without pain. He has not had a single night’s sleep uninterrupted by long periods of difficult breathing or excruciating coughing.

As his wife, I have been distraught over seeing him suffer like this. There have been several nights where I had my hand on my phone ready to call 911 when his breathing became so labored it was terrifying.

Despite this, he refused to give in to the pain and was determined to fly back to Washington last week to do his job. As we walked through the airport returning from D.C., he was shivering with a 102.5 fever, and the next morning his internist diagnosed pneumonia in his damaged lung.
