Rand Paul thanks D.C. cops for saving him from "crazed mob" after RNC

Video on social media appeared to show a crowd chasing and jeering Paul, who was escorted by D.C. police as he returned to his hotel. An officer was captured on video being shoved by a protester and was nearly knocked over. Paul appeared to help steady the officer.

Police formed a wall around Paul and his wife, Kelley Paul as protesters chanted, “Breonna Taylor” and “no justice, no peace!”
