Mitch McConnell and his wife Elaine Chao were eating in a Kentucky restaurant this weekend when a leftist began to harass them. But then something fascinating happened. Other diners intervened and said to leave them alone.
Have we finally reached a turning point on the left’s public harassment campaign?
FOX News reports:
Diners confront Mitch McConnell at restaurant, get told to ‘leave him alone’ by others
A small group of angry diners confronted Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell at a restaurant Friday night, but were met with calls from other customers to leave the Kentucky Republican alone.
Video obtained by TMZ shows at least one diner berating McConnell on issues such as Social Security at a restaurant in Louisville. The video starts with him yelling at McConnell and arguing with Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao — to whom McConnell is married. The outlet reported that four men first confronted McConnell.
“Oh yeh, why don’t you get out of here? Why don’t you leave our entire country,” the protester tells the couple.
As Chao argues with the protester, McConnell appears unperturbed and sips on a drink. But other diners begin yelling at the protester, telling him to “leave him alone” and making shoo-ing gestures.

The left is not going to like the effect this nonsense will have on the midterms.
