Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul used the Heimlich maneuver Thursday on fellow GOP Sen. Joni Ernst who was choking on her lunch.

Ernst, of Iowa, confirmed the news on the social media platform X with a dash of humor.  

"Can’t help but choke on the woke policies Dems are forcing down our throats. Thanks, Dr. @RandPaul!" she wrote. 

Another Republican senator, Lindsay Graham, of South Carolina, praised Paul for his actions. 

“God bless Rand Paul,” he said. “I never thought I’d say that.”
