Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was confronted by customers Friday at a Cuban restaurant in Louisville.
In a video obtained by TMZ, the Kentucky Republican and his wife, transportation secretary Elaine Chao, were eating dinner at Havana Rumba when four men began shouting at the senator.
“Why don’t you get out of here?” one of the men is heard yelling at McConnell, as other diners told him to leave the senator alone. “Why don’t you leave the entire country?”
The woman who recorded the video told TMZ the issue was over McConnell’s stance on Social Security and health care. The senator recently suggested such programs were the causes of the rising U.S. deficit, which has ballooned to $779 billion.
