Rand Paul was harassed by leftist protestors while he was out eating lunch at a California restaurant.
Video of the incident has hit social media, and it includes a woman flipping off the camera and saying, “You just ran into two people from New York, kiddo, and we’re not putting up with your Republican bulls***.”
The camera then pans over to a man who appears to be lecturing Paul.
“I’m not being rude, he’s a public official, I have a right to speak to him,” the man says at one point.
“While you and I possibly, probably, don’t have much in common politically, we are Americans,” the man says at another point right before the video cuts off.
“While having lunch with @RandPaul in California, we got verbally assaulted by these aggressive libs complaining about incivility. Check out the vid! #unhinged,” Sergio Gor, the deputy chief of staff for Paul, wrote on Twitter about the incident on Friday.

Paul also shared the video and pointed out the incivility that has taken over politics.
“The left blames incivility on @realDonaldTrump. Watch this video and decide who the rude ones are,” Paul tweeted. read more
