Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) became the latest victim of violent intolerance and hatred from the opposite end of the political spectrum when he and his wife were accosted and harassed by a mob of people outside their home on Tuesday.
The crowd, lacking all civility, surrounded McConnell and his wife, hurling insults and peppering them with misinformed questions such as ‘why are you separating families?”
McConnell’s wife, Elaine Chao can be heard on the video imploring the mob to leave her husband alone. They refused.
The harassment comes just days after Congresswoman Maxine Waters urged her followers to harass and attack President Trump, members of his administration and anyone who supports the president.
If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere,” Maxine told her followers.
The actions taken against President Trump, his administration, supporters and Republicans is increasingly disturbing! Please pray for healing in this country!
