Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was accosted again this weekend, after a group of protesters confronted and hounded him as he walked to his car.
The incident, as first reported by TMZ, also included an unidentified man yelling at McConnell “We know where you live.”
The comments come at a time in which a Rep. Steve Scalise was nearly killed by a left-wing shooter and Sen. Rand Paul was assaulted in his front yard by a neighbor who did not like his politics.
After Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) called on people to harass and confront Republicans, numerous instances of incivility have lowered the nation’s level of discourse and raised serious questions about the security of Republicans and members of the Trump administration.
Recently, even White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders has been given Secret Service protection in response to the potential dangers.
According to TMZ, as McConnell was leaving a restaurant in Louisville, Kentucky along with Kentucky House Majority Leader Jonathan Shell when the protesters confronted them screaming “Where are the babies, Mitch?” and “Abolish ICE,” and “No justice, no peace.” The protesters were reportedly upset with immigration policies set in motion by the Obama administration and continued by the Trump administration in which children were separated from their parents who entered the country illegally.
Shell called the protesters “a small group of extremists” and said their actions were “out of the Maxine Waters playbook.”
In recent weeks, Sarah Sanders and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen were also accosted in restaurants.
Here is the video, as posted to YouTube.
Who the protesters are has not yet been identified.
