Sen. Mitch McConnell confronted by protesters in Louisville

VIDEO Angry socialist protesters confront Mitch Mc Connell again shout ‘We know where you live

The incident occurred outside the Bristol Bar & Grille in Louisville on Saturday, with McConnell leaving the restaurant, where he dined with Kentucky outgoing House Majority Floor Leader Jonathan Shell, and being accosted by what Shell described as "a small group of extremists", The Courier Journal reported.

Protesters confronted Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) outside a Kentucky restaurant over the weekend.

"Why are you separating families?" one person demanded to know, while another asked McConnell, "How does he sleep at night?"

Video posted online by the Courier-Journal shows protesters running up behind the Republican leader and yelling numerous things at him, most of which were related to President Trump's zero-tolerance immigration policy and the separation of families at the southern U.S. border. "We know where you live!".

"[It's a] not-so-subtle threat right out of the Maxine Waters playbook", Shell told the Journal, referring to the US House Democrat from California, who has been urging protesters to confront White House officials. She walked a step ahead of the Senate's top Republican, and the rest of the crowd followed close behind, still chanting and shouting.

'Why don't you leave my husband alone?

The Louisville encounter was the second time in two weeks that McConnell's private life has been disrupted by a spontaneous protest - and it was the latest in weeks-long series of confrontations between powerful Republicans and those eager to shame them on camera, wherever they are found. The comments seemingly reference the thousands of migrant children who were separated from their parents from April to June under the Trump administration's "zero tolerance" policy.

Chao fiercely defended her husband then, telling protestors to "leave my husband alone".

One of the protesters also played an audio recording, published by ProPublica, in which children taken from their parents can be heard crying.

As the demonstrators continued to question why McConnell was separating families, Chao shouted: 'He is not!'

"Where are the children?" one of them asked, not for the last time.
