A feud that allegedly resulted in Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) being assaulted at his home last weekend started due to a dispute over landscaping, The New York Times reported.
Paul and his longtime next-door neighbor had disagreements over yard care, according to the newspaper, which cited neighbors and three Kentucky Republicans familiar with the issue.
Paul was reportedly mowing his lawn and wearing ear plugs when he was attacked.
“Rand never saw him coming or heard him coming,” a friend, Robert Porter, who visited Paul on Saturday, told the Times.
Damn, senators are out here throwing hands. It’s not safe for politicians anymore. One second, you’re minding you’re own business mowing you’re lawn and such. The next second, your neighbor from down the block is rolling up on you and breaking your ribs.
The biggest lie in this story is that Paul ‘never saw it coming’. Uh, yea he did. The second he and this hero that beat his face in, started beefing over their front yards, he knew there was a possibility of getting bodyslammed.
‘Talk shit, get hit’.
You have to keep your head on a swivel, Rand. He seems like the type of guy who would immediately crawl into a ball when face to face with any sort of man taller than him with an attitude. I mean, just look at the way he behaves around Donald Trump.

Yikes. That is the body language of a man who is going to get his ribs broken on his own front lawn by a neighbor.
RIP Rand Paul.
