Protesters confront Senator Rand Paul during a protest in Washington on Aug 27 2020

Videos circulating on social media, which could not be immediately verified by Reuters, show the senator and his wife Kelley walking down the street as crowds gathered near them shouting and shoving the police who tried to protect the couple.

"Just got attacked by an angry mob of over 100, one block away from the White House", Paul said in a tweet.

Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., center, and others, are escorted by Metropolitan Police after attending President Donald Trump's acceptance speech at the White House, Thursday night, August 27, 2020, in Washington, after a crowd had enveloped Paul as he left the event and demanded that he acknowledge police shooting victim Breonna Taylor.

Viral video caught the worrying moment a throng of shouting, pushing protesters harassed Paul and his wife as they left the White House.

In the videos, police formed a perimeter around the Pauls, telling protesters "move back".

Ruby began his career in animation at the Walt Disney Animation Studios where he worked in the inbetweeners department. It was launched as a gentler series partly in response to complaints about violence in cartoons such as Space Ghost .

As he walked into the crowd, Mast told the Daily Caller he respected the demonstrations.

Other people who attended the Republican National Convention events at the White House were also confronted by Black Lives Matter demonstrators, including Jones, a black man who has faced criticism from Democrats for supporting Trump.

"Thank you to DC Police for literally saving our lives from a crazed mob". Demonstrators shouted at the senator, calling on him to say the name of Breonna Taylor, a woman shot by police officers.

In June, Paul filed federal legislation to prohibit police officers across the country from using no-knock warrants like the one that led to the fatal shooting of Taylor.

It was unclear whether any protesters made physical contact with Paul.
