'Vote Him Out': Mitch McConnell Confronted by Protestors in Kentucky - Without Secretary Chao to Defend Him

When your own constituents protest your existence on a quiet Saturday morning, you know there's a problem. Enter: Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell from Kentucky.


A large rally was held in downtown Louisville, Ky. on Saturday morning to protest ICE. The Courier Journal reported that McConnell was a no-show and at the demonstration and issued no statements or comments in response.

Later in the day, McConnell was leaving dinner at Bristol Bar & Grille in Louisville when protesters stormed his car.

Heard among the chants were: "Where are the babies, Mitch?," "Abolish ICE," "We know where you live," and "Vote him out."

A few weeks earlier, a similar incident occurred in Washington, D.C. involving McConnell.
