Sen. Mitch McConnell was confronted by angry constituents at a Cuban restaurant in Louisville Friday night.

“Why don’t you get out of here?” a man screamed at the Senate Majority Leader in the video obtained by TMZ. “Why don’t you leave the entire country?”

The woman who recorded the video at the Havana Rumba restaurant told TMZ that “the main aggressor slammed his fists down on McConnell’s table, grabbed his doggie bag and threw the food out the door of the restaurant” before she began filming.

She added that the diner cited the senator’s stance on Social Security and health care as his main issues.

There was also reportedly “some dispute” over the bill before McConnell and his wife, Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, left the restaurant, the woman added. They spoke with a waiter and a manager about the bill before exiting.

Black voters who sat out 2016 are ready to boot ‘ignorant’ Donald Trump ‘come hell or high water’: report

In 2016, “I didn’t like either of the candidates," said Jason Hooper of Greensboro, North Carolina.

Turns out, Hooper wasn't the only one with this perspective. According to Pew Research, Black voter turnout declined in 2016 for the first time in 20 years, down from 66.2 percent to 59.6 percent. Things are different this year, though.
