Twitchy mentioned this in passing in an earlier thread on political harassment, but it really deserves its own post. Apparently, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and his wife, Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, were having dinner at a restaurant when they were confronted by “a small group of diners” Friday night in Louisville, Ky.

TMZ obtained the footage, which The Hill describes in its piece:

At the beginning of the clip, the diner can be seen yelling at the Republican and arguing with his wife, Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao.

“Oh yeah, why don’t you get out of here? Why don’t you leave our entire country,” the diner can be seen telling the couple as others at the restaurant shooed the diner and told him to leave the senator alone.

“They’re going to come for Social Security,” the diner continued before appearing to be approached by restaurant staff.

The woman who recorded the incident told TMZ the diner also slammed his fists on the couple’s table and threw out his food.

According to TMZ, McConnell was confronted by four men in total during the incident.

Isn’t this what Rep. Maxine Waters encouraged? Lefties seem to have no problem with harassing politicians who are on the wrong side of the issues; it’s this self-righteous attitude, fueled by apocalyptic reporting from the papers and cable news, that leads to this sort of thing.

No, not full stop.

Disorderly conduct?

This is the blue wave we have to hold back, understand?
