Former Texas Congressman, Air Force veteran and longtime Libertarian icon Dr. Ron Paul appears to have had a stroke while on a live broadcast Friday afternoon.
During a live broadcast of his show, the “Liberty Report,” Dr.Paul -who is the son of Kentucky Senator Rand Paul- appeared to have suffered a stroke, losing control of his speech and one side of his face.
The guest appeared confused and asked Dr. Paul if he was alright before the feed cut.
According to Zero Hedge, the “Liberty Report” brings in hundreds of thousands of viewers every time it airs.
Several hours later, Dr. Paul was photographed giving a thumbs up and a smile from a hospital bed.
“I am doing fine,” his Twitter account quoted him as saying. “Thank you for your concern.”
Prior to politics, Dr. Paul served as a flight surgeon in the United States Air Force from 1963 to 1965 and then in the United States Air National Guard from 1965 to 1968. From there, he went to Texas, opening a private obstetrics and gynecology practice.
Dr. Paul served in Congress for three different periods, from 1976 to 1977, 1979 to 1985, and finally from 1997 to 2013.
The three-time congressman also ran for president on three occasions, as the Libertarian Party nominee in 1988, and as a Republican in 2008 and 2012, respectively.
