"When Rand Paul pulls a stunt like this, it easy to understand why it's hard to be Rand Paul's next door neighbor", Rep. Charlie Dent (R-PA) told Politico.

Songstress and comedic actress Bette Midler took to Twitter last night and seemingly wished Rand Paul ill as he continued to hold up the vote that would avoid a government shutdown. "First of all, has Bette Midler been relevant since, like, Beaches in 1988 when I was four?" Rene A. Boucher was charged with assaulting the senator after he was initially arrested in November.

Midler, who often posts caustic and sarcastic tweets, wrote that she wished Paul's infamous neighbor, who violently beat him during a lawn dispute a year ago, would show up. As the government prepared to shut down at midnight Thursday, Paul expressed his opposition to the bill based on the large deficit that would result.

Paul was hospitalized after the attack and suffered six broken ribs.

Boucher pled guilty to one count of assaulting a member of Congress and faces up to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000.

Midler frequently tweets her vehement criticism of President Donald Trump and Republicans.
