LOUISVILLE, Ky. (LEX 18)– A video of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell getting heckled at a Louisville restaurant Friday night is getting national attention.

TMZ obtained video of the incident.

McConnell was at Havana Rumba with his wife when several men confronted him.

The woman who shot the video told TMZ at one point the main aggressor slammed his fists on McConnell’s table, grabbed his to-go box, and tossed the food out the door of the restaurant.

McConnell stayed calm throughout the incident and even thanked some of his supporters afterward.

The Courier-Journal reports a spokesman for McConnell said the senator and his wife enjoyed their meals, and “they appreciate those who spoke up against incivility.”
