Ron Paul, the prominent Libertarian, was hospitalized on Friday for “precautionary reasons,” Fox News reported. In a scary video that went viral earlier in the day, Paul appeared to suffer a serious medical situation while on the air of a live stream.
Thankfully, Fox News reports that Paul is “lucid” and “optimistic,” and Paul has since tweeted from the hospital that he is doing fine:
