Former representative Ron Paul appeared to suffer a stroke or a TIA today during a live taping of his show The Liberty Report.
Paul’s medical condition has not yet been confirmed. However, a video clip from the taping showed Paul, who was interviewing a guest via Zoom, suddenly begin speaking in slurred speech. Paul has been admitted to a Texas hospital for “precautionary reasons,” Fox News reported.
Paul, 85, was speaking about federal stimulus money during a livestream on his YouTube channel when his speech began to slur earlier in the day.
Paul served as a Republican congressman for years and has made three bids to become president: in 1988 as a libertarian and twice in 2008 and 2012 as a Republican.
His son, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, did not immediately respond to a Fox News’ request for comment.
