In Congress

Rand Paul Performed Heimlich On Iowa Senator Joni Ernst

Republican Sen. Dr. Rand Paul of Kentucky performed the Heimlich maneuver on Republican Sen. Joni Ernst of Iowa Thursday, according to multiple reports.

Ernst was attending a lunch at the Senate with the Iowa Cattlemen’s Association and began choking before Paul gave her the Heimlich, according to Politico reporter Burgess Everett, and other elected officials said that the Iowa Senator was doing all right afterward. Ernst later posted about the incident on social media, thanking Paul for saving her from choking on “woke policies.”

“Can’t help but choke on the woke policies Dems are forcing down our throats. Thanks, Dr.Paul,” Ernst wrote. 

Rand Paul’s wife, Kelly, also posted about the incident, calling her husband a “hero.”

Paul’s office did not immediately respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.
