On Saturday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was confronted by protesters as he was leaving a restaurant in his home state.

The incident was captured on camera as he walked out of the Bristol Bar & Grille in Louisville. In the video, you can hear protesters chanting, “Vote you out!” and “Abolish ICE!” He was even called “turtle head” by one of the protesters who also kept repeating, “We know where you live.”

Another protester was heard repeatedly asking, “Where are the babies, Mitch?” This is in reference to the migrant children who were separated from their parents.

McConnell did not seem to react or even acknowledge the protesters.

This is not the first time McConnell clashed with protesters.

About two weeks ago, McConnell and his wife, Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, also had a run in with protesters. The previous incident happened in Washington D.C. while they were leaving an event at Georgetown University.
