The encounter, which took place in a parking lot outside of a Louisville restaurant, was captured on camera by one of the protesters. In the video, you can hear the group of protesters chanting “vote you out!” and “abolish ICE!” to the Republican senator from Kentucky. One man can be heard calling the senator “turtle head” and repeatedly saying “we know where you live” as the senator and two dining companions climb into their parked vehicle.
McConnell did not respond to the protesters’ comments.
According to the Post, hundreds of people were protesting Saturday outside Louisville’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement Office, just a few miles from the restaurant. Among the protesters were members of the local chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America. When someone noticed McConnell at the restaurant, they called on the protesters to confront the senator.
“If the Leader comments on being called a fascist and a supporter of ICE by a small handful of extremist protesters then I will let you know,” McConnell’s spokesman, David Popp, told the Post after the incident.
Popp repeated the remark in a statement to CNN.
