McConnell chased from Kentucky restaurant by protesters

VIDEO Angry socialist protesters confront Mitch Mc Connell again shout ‘We know where you live

"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".

Woman dependent on oxygen tank dies after company cuts power
The family called paramedics who showed up with a portable oxygen tank. "She was trying to catch her breath". A day late and a dollar short, the power company turned on Daniels' electricity one day after she died.

"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'.

Starbucks plans to stop offering plastic straws by 2020
McDonald's said earlier this year that it would stop using plastic straws at all of its stores in the United Kingdom and Ireland. The recyclable lids are already in use in about 8,000 Starbucks locations in the United States and Canada , the company said .

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.
