A male protester is heard in the clip saying that "hopefully" someone out there has a "voodoo doll." The female protester appears to agree.  "Just stab the motherf**ker in the heart, please," she says.
“We’re out here because [McConnell] wants thoughts and prayers, when another white man massacres people,” the protester later adds.
The hashtag "#MassacreMoscowMitch" was also dominating on social media on Monday night.
Multiple Democrats, including Rep. Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Bernie Sanders, have been calling on McConnell to bring a vote to a gun control bill that was passed by Democrat-controlled House back in February. The Senate majority leader declined to bring forward the bill but said Monday that he’s willing to consider “bipartisan” solutions in the wake of the mass shootings as long as those measures don't infringe “on Americans’ constitutional rights.”

“Today, the president called on Congress to work in a bipartisan, bicameral way to address the recent mass murders which have shaken our nation,” McConnell said in a statement. “Senate Republicans are prepared to do our part.”
This isn't the first time the Senate Majority Leader has been confronted by protesters. Last October, a man yelled at McConnell as he dined with his wife, Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, at a Louisville restaurant.
