Senator Rand Paul (KY) on Thursday used the Heimlich maneuver to save a fellow Senator who choked on some food at a Senate lunch.

Rand Paul, a physician, performed the Heimlich maneuver on Senator Joni Ernst (IA).

Joni Ernst thanked Dr. Rand Paul and cracked a joke about woke Democrats.

“Can’t help but choke on the woke policies Dems are forcing down our throats. Thanks, Dr. @RandPaul!” Senator Ernst said in a post on X.

Senators gathered for lunch on Thursday.

“Yummm an Iowa chop from Sen Ernst & the Iowa Cattlemen’s Association for lunch,” Grassley said on Thursday before the choking incident.
