‘No Comfort for Fascists’

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is the latest Republican to learn going to a restaurant in this political climate is dicey.
McConnell was taunted by protesters Saturday as he left the eatery in Louisville, Kentucky … confronted over immigration policies that include separate children from their parents.
As McConnell strolled out with Kentucky House Majority Leader Jonathan Shell, protesters screamed, “Where are the babies, Mitch?” and “Abolish ICE,” and “No justice, no peace.”
Shell called the protesters “a small group of extremists” and said their comments were “out of the Maxine Waters playbook.”
As you know, Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked to leave a restaurant a few weeks back, and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was asked to leave a Mexican restaurant. Both women obliged and left.
