Several ‘reporters’ attacked Rand Paul Monday when it emerged the Senator is to visit Canada to have hernia surgery, leveling claims that Paul is a hypocrite for going to a country with socialized medical care.

However, a simple Google search or a phone call (remember those?) would have helped the media understand that Paul is actually going to a PRIVATE facility that specializes in hernia care – the EXACT OPPOSITE of socialized medicine.

Paul is undergoing surgery again following the vicious attack he suffered from a mentally disturbed neighbor last year, who broke six of Paul’s ribs and caused damage to his lungs.

According to reports, the cost of the surgery will be $5,000 to $8,000 with an additional  $4,000 in medical expenses, all of which Paul is suing to recover from Rene Boucher, who was sentenced to just 30 days in prison.

Some intrepid ‘journalists’ got a hold of the lawsuit and found out that Senator Paul will undergo an outpatient surgery in Canada later this month at Shouldice Hernia Hospital, a specialist hernia facility.

In a tweet which has since been deleted, kings of fake news, The Daily Beast, declared that “Sen. Rand Paul — one of the fiercest critics of socialized medicine — is heading to Canada for surgery.”

This caused a wave of lunacy to head Paul’s way on Twitter:


Paul’s chief strategist Doug Stafford put the record straight:

“This is a private, world renowned hospital separate from any system and people come from around the world to pay cash for their services,” Kelsey Cooper, a spokeswoman for Paul, also told The Hill.

This STILL didn’t stop idiots from piling on:

Just stop. Please.

In a further statement, Stafford said “It’s an opportunity for the Left to take a cheap shot at Rand for no reason, and without any facts on their side.

“It’s disgusting clickbait for them.” Stafford added.
