Rand, 56, is heard attempting to respond to a man who asks to speak to him. An official, believed to be with Rand Paul, can be heard saying: 'Stop being rude.
He then responds: 'I'm not being rude, he's a public official, I have a right to speak to him.'
A woman then comes into view with her phone in her hand and shouts: 'You just ran into two people from New York, kiddo, and we're not putting up with your Republican bulls**t!.'
The man is then heard saying: 'All I am saying is that while you and I possibly, probably, don't have much in common politically, right? We are Americans.'
Paul retweeted the video and said that while 'The left blames incivility' on Donald Trump, he urged voters to 'watch this video and decide who the rude ones are.'
Sergio Gor posted the video with the caption: 'While having lunch with @RandPaul in California, we got verbally assaulted by these aggressive libs complaining about incivility. Check out the vid! #unhinged.'
Former Republican Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee was one of the first people on Twitter to defend Paul. Reposting the the video, he said in a Tweet: These unhinged old loons screaming at @RandPaul are probably someone's grandparents.
Do they hope their grandkids turn out like this? I actually feel sorry for them. Do they really think they are winning? Uncorked rage, hate, and vile. They need help.'
Similar incidents involving Republicans have occurred in the past, including Sarah Huckabee Sanders being refused service at a restaurant in Virginia last year.
