Protesters Target Mitch McConnell As He Leaves Restaurant, Shouting 'Where Are The Babies?'

"Where are the babies, Mitch?" another said.

Protesters confronted Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) outside a Kentucky restaurant over the weekend.

"Where are the babies, Mitch?" shouted another protester, presumably in reference to the Trump administration's controversial "zero tolerance" policy of separating families caught illegally crossing the border.

Kentucky politician Jonathan Shell, who was dining with McConnell, confirmed Sunday that the incident took place and referred to the protesters as "a small group of extremists".

Tab Hunter, Star of Damn Yankees!, Dead at 86
The film star released his autobiography, Tab Hunter Confidential: The Making of a Movie Star in 2005, in which Mr. Glaser also told the Times that Hunter was a religious man who worked with paralyzed veterans and animals.

"Where are the children?" one protester asked McConnell. "We know where you live", one male voice could be heard saying.

It all happened when McConnell was walking outside the Bristol Bar & Grille in Louisville, according to the Courier Journal.

McConnell did not address the protesters.

He said the comment about "knowing where you live" was "a not-so-subtle threat right out of the Maxine Waters playbook" and 'very distasteful'.

British foreign secretary quits in protest over May's Brexit plan
David Lammy, a prominent member of the opposition Labour party, derided Davis as "a man who cant take responsibility". That's partly because they can't be sure they have the numbers needed to defeat her.

The Department of Transportation Secretary and the Senate Majority Leader were approached by students as they made their way to their vehicle outside the Copley Formal Lounge on the university campus in Washington, DC. McConnell does not, however, support the administration's now-reversed policy of separating immigrant children from their parents. In the meantime, most separated families have not been reunited. The separation of families drew intense criticism until President Donald Trump ended the policy by executive order last month.

The Louisville encounter was the second time in two weeks that McConnell's private life has been disrupted by a spontaneous protest - and it was the latest in weeks-long series of confrontations between powerful Republicans and those eager to shame them on camera, wherever they are found.

Protesters confronted him just a few weeks ago at Georgetown University in Washington DC.as he was leaving a dinner with his wife, Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao. "Leave my husband alone!" The protesters played audio of migrant children weeping as McConnell's SUV pulled away.
