    Mitch McConnell harassed again at restaurant, but other diners come to his defense

    Mitch McConnell harassed again at restaurant, but other diners come to his defense

    “the main aggressor slammed his fists down on McConnell’s table, grabbed his doggie bag and threw the food out the door of the restaurant”

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has been harassed and confronted by anti-Trump and anti-Kavanaugh protesters, including outside a restaurant, at the airport, and on the street after a Georgetown University event.

    This fits a pattern of attempts to intimidate Republican lawmakers and figures at the urging of Democrats such as Maxine Waters.

    It just happened again.

    McConnell was out enjoying a casual meal with his wife when an angry diner started screaming at him.  Within moments, the restaurant’s other diners started shouting, too . . . at the angry diner.

    TMZ reports:

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, was confronted Friday night by some angry diners who loudly berated him for his politics.

    The Kentucky Senator was eating dinner with his wife at Havana Rumba in Louisville, when 4 men confronted Mitch. The main aggressor screams at McConnell, “Why don’t you get out of here?  Why don’t you leave the entire country?”

    The woman who shot the video tells us, before she started recording, the main aggressor slammed his fists down on McConnell’s table, grabbed his doggie bag and threw the food out the door of the restaurant.

    The woman says the main gripe seemed to be the Senator’s stance on Social Security and health care.  McConnell recently said entitlement programs are the main cause of massive debt. The woman says before she started shooting, the main aggressor was screaming that McConnell was killing people with his views.

    McConnell kept his cool and afterward thanked some of his supporters, shaking their hands.

    At one point in the video, you can see a table of diners shoo-ing the screaming diner with dismissive waves of the hand.  The screaming diner then turns and attempts to shout them all down; by this point, his plan, whatever it was, was seriously derailed.

    Fox News has more:

    A small group of angry diners confronted Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell at a restaurant Friday night, but were met with calls from other customers to leave the Kentucky Republican alone.

    Video obtained by TMZ shows at least one diner berating McConnell on issues such as Social Security at a restaurant in Louisville. The video starts with him yelling at McConnell and arguing with Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao — to whom McConnell is married. The outlet reported that four men first confronted McConnell.

    “Oh yeh, why don’t you get out of here? Why don’t you leave our entire country,” the protester tells the couple.

    As Chao argues with the protester, McConnell appears unperturbed and sips on a drink. But other diners begin yelling at the protester, telling him to “leave him alone” and making shoo-ing gestures.


    McConnell spokesman David Popp issued the following statement (via Fox News):

    “The Leader and Sec. Chao enjoyed their meal in Louisville last night and they appreciate those who spoke up against incivility,” McConnell spokesman David Popp said in a statement. “They hope other patrons weren’t too inconvenienced by left-wing tantrums. As the Leader often says, the Senate will not be intimidated by the antics of far-left protestors.”

    After repeated calls from Democrats for #TheResistance to confront and hound Republicans anywhere and everywhere, it’s heartening to see that this tactic will not always be welcome . . . or go quite as planned.

    The best way for Cocaine Mitch to respond is during the lame duck session of the Senate is to approve some 40+ nominees to the bench.

    Until our half-assed leftists lose interest in their tawdry bolshevik-lite street theater, Mitch and Elaine might consider dining with a few Deplorables once in a while. We’re more than just cash cows to be tapped for this or that silly progressive pipe dream. We transcend socioeconomic categories. Many of us have all our teeth, even.

    A doggy bag, containing food purchased by the diner is the diner’s property. There are laws in every state in the Union making depriving a person of their property a criminal offense; at least misdemeanor theft. Just as with immigration, can someone PLEASE enforce our laws?

    GOP seems to be eating out more with cameras handy. Hoping to maximize the fail biggly effect of this tactic at the ballot box?

    I keep hearing it is “both sides” that are the problem. Where are the protestors throwing Maxine Waters’ or SanFranNan’s leftovers out of the restaurant? Shouting down pols at restaurants and dinners?

    Next time I hear a “both sides do this”, the lunkhead had better post a list of examples where BOTH SIDES do it. Otherwise, he better learn to change his story or shut his piehole. Conservatives do NOT do this; we want to live our own lives, not have other people tell us how to live it like the nanny lieberals like to do.
