As we previously reported, Republican Senator Mitch McConnell was dining at Havana Rumba with his wife, Elaine Chao, in Louisville, Kentucky, last week when a group of angry liberals began to verbally harass him.
One man began to pound on McConnell’s table, then proceeded to throw his bag of leftovers out the front door of the building.
The video below actually shows the attack on McConnell and his wife, but if you watch until the end, you can see a man wearing a camouflage hat defending the Republican Senator against his attacker.
“Oh yeah, why don’t you get out of here? Why don’t you leave our entire country,” the man in the camo hat said to the unhinged liberal.
The woman who recorded the attack told TMZ that “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.”
She also stated that “the main gripe seemed to be the Senator’s stance on Social Security and health care.” She also said that “the main aggressor was screaming that McConnell was killing people with his views” before she began filming.
It was reported by TMZ that McConnell and his wife were confronted by four men in total.

“The Leader and Secretary Chao enjoyed their meal in Louisville last night and they appreciate those who spoke up against incivility. 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,’ press secretary Stephanie Penn said in a statement.”
The restaurant’s statement to WLKY read, “We deeply regret the incident that took place at our restaurant this weekend. We strongly believe everyone should feel welcome and safe in our restaurants. It was Friday night in the middle of the rush and our staff was caught off guard as the incident developed quickly. Once we were aware of the situation we acted quickly and efficiently to assure that everyone was safe. For 14 years, we have properly handled every situation that has arisen with no complaints of any kind. We will continue to do so, training our staff and management better. Havana Rumba has always been a welcoming place to all who want to enjoy delicious Cuban cuisine and we are committed to continue bringing that to our Louisville community.”
It was reported that McConnell remained calm through the entire attack, going on to thank those diners who helped to defend him as he left the restaurant.
Why do liberals think they’re doing the Democratic Party any favors with these ridiculous outbursts? They are simply making themselves look bad. This is just another nail in the coffin, and with the midterm elections quickly approaching, the Democrats had better pull themselves together if they have any hope of a “blue wave.”
