The Democrat-supported effort to accost, harass and threaten anyone associated with the Trump administration continued unabated this past weekend.
Senator Mitch McConnell was confronted as he left a lunch date with a colleague by protesters calling out to “Abolish ICE,” while one even offered a not so vague threat that they know where he lives.
Meanwhile, at a bookstore in Virginia, former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon was harassed by a woman who insisted on calling him a “piece of trash” and refused to leave.
These extremists are actually becoming the norm in the Democrat Party, acting on the call to action issued by Maxine Waters and supported by her Democrat colleagues, to “create a crowd,” “push back on,” and “tell them (Trump officials) they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.” (RELATED: Maxine Waters Cancels Events After Receiving Threats).
It is flat-out disgusting at this point.
A video shows McConnell walking past Bristol Bar & Grille in Lousiville, Kentucky, where he is pursued and subjected to repeated chants of “Where are the babies, Mitch?” and “vote you out.”
Before getting into his vehicle, one protester can be heard yelling “We know where you live,” something his colleague describes as a “not-so-subtle threat right out of the Maxine Waters playbook.”

This isn’t the first (or likely the last) time McConnell has been harassed. He and his wife Elaine Chao, the Department of Transportation Secretary, came dangerously close to protesters a couple of weeks ago.

Over at the Virginia bookstore, a woman had the police called on her by the owner after she refused to leave Bannon alone while he was – *Gasp* – shopping for books!
“Steve Bannon was simply standing, looking at books, minding his own business,” said Nick Cooke, owner of Black Swan Books. “I asked her to leave, and she wouldn’t. And I said, ‘I’m going to call the police if you don’t,’ and I went to call the police and she left. And that’s the end of the story.”

In a further display that this harassment is fully condoned by prominent members of the Democrat Party, Philippe Reines, a former top adviser to Hillary Clinton, doxxed the bookstore by sharing their address and contact information, a clear attempt to get his (and Hillary’s) followers to further cause problems for them simply trying to run a business.

Reines has a history of bizarre and juvenile behavior on Twitter, having taken a vile shot at Donald Trump Jr., and his ex-wife, Vanessa earlier this year. (RELATED: Former Hillary Adviser Posts Vile Rant Mocking Donald Trump Jr.).
This is a former top aide to Hillary Clinton, doxxing business owners and openly fantasizing about the sex life of his political opponents!
These incidents involving McConnell and Bannon show the incivility touted by the Democrat Party is not going away anytime soon, and will only get reported as a major problem within the media when it escalates too far.
And even then it will be President Trump’s fault.
