“Where are the babies, Mitch?” protesters demanded.
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.
A group of Louisville residents, including several @DemSocialists members, had a message for Mitch McConnell as he left a local restaurant today. Powerful people like Mitch deserve no peace while they enable the imprisonment of babies in concentration camps. #AbolishICE pic.twitter.com/ruCXhbnKse

The resistance is on to Mitch McConnell in Kentucky. The Turtle of the Senate has been met with protesters twice in recent weeks making him as popular as Nielson. McConnell was called the most hated politician in the world by Science. More to come for McConnell? pic.twitter.com/NPbmQnsclD

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.
