NORTH TEXAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Former Texas Representative Ron Paul is in a Texas hospital after suffering some kind of ‘medical emergency’ while participating in a live stream event on his YouTube channel.
The move was reportedly taken for “precautionary” reasons, after Paul’s speech turned to gibberish as he spoke about the free market. Another panelist became so concerned that they during the stream they asked Paul if he was “okay”.READ MORE: North Texas Health Departments, Pharmacies Making Plans To Vaccinate Children Against COVID-19
It wasn’t disclosed what hospital Paul was taken to but he later sent a tweet saying, “I am doing fine. Thank you for your concern.” The picture showed him giving a thumbs up while in a hospital, wearing a gown and hooked up to machines.
