Protesters confronted Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi (R) on Saturday as she left a movie screening of the new documentary about Mr. Rogers, “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?”
A video posted to Twitter shows Bondi being escorted out of the building by police officers as protesters chant slogans and demand Bondi support health care provisions from the Affordable Care Act.
“What would Mr. Rogers think about you and your legacy in Florida? Taking away health insurance from people with pre-existing conditions, Pam Bondi!” yelled Maria José Chapa, a labor organizer, according to the Tampa Bay Times. “Shame on you!”
Timothy Heberlein of left-leaning group Organize Florida took the video and uploaded it to Twitter.
Bondi, a Republican, has been quite aggressive in Florida attempting to undermine Obamacare, dropped a lawsuit against Trump University after her PAC received a donation from the Trump Foundation, and has opposed same-sex marriage.
So yeah, she is not a very nice person.
