A Democrat congresswoman was caught on video freaking out on a diner owner for displaying a campaign poster of her potential rival.

Rep. Lois Frankel (D-Fla.) was seen admonishing Richard Kline, owner of City Diner in West Palm Beach, and threatening retaliation for his daring to hang a campaign poster for her potential opponent, Republican primary candidate Deborah Adeimy after she was informed by a customer about it.

“Not 10 minutes later did Lois come crashing through the door,” Kline said. “She didn’t come to eat. Because she comes with her elderly mother when she comes to eat. It’s a whole different mindset.”

“She came in looking around with her dark sunglasses. She was looking for that picture. Finally she found it and she started freaking out,” he added.

Adeimy’s camapign poster reads: “Retire Lois Frankel.” 

The video began after Frankel was heard yelling for the store owner after reportedly learning about the campaign poster from another customer.

“I’m gonna make sure, that every, one of my [inaudible] knows exactly what you’ve been doing here” Frankel is seen telling Kline.

“I’m not allowed to vote for who I want?” Kline asked her.

“You can vote for who you want, but let me tell you something—” Frankel continued before she appeared to take photos of the campaign poster. 

At one point Frankel told Kline, “Listen, listen, listen, Mr. Trump.”

Kline told Human Events he was shocked to see “a congresswoman in the United States House of Representatives having a meltdown because one of her constituents is voting for or supporting a different candidate— who by the way hasn’t even won her primary yet,” adding he didn’t even have any Trump memorabilia.

“Why is a sitting congresswoman having a meltdown in my restaurant over a woman who has not even won a primary?” he asked.

Kline added that he placed an Adeimy sign outside his establishment in addition to the poster after the bizarre altercation:

Adeimy also addressed the altercation, calling Frankel’s antics “inexcusable behavior.”

“This goes beyond politics. I find it appalling that a sitting member of Congress would intimidate or threaten anyone for supporting me or any reason. This is inexcusable behavior,” Adeimy said.

“I want to wish the Kline family all the best and thank them for their continued support. No American should be verbally attacked by their own Congressperson, have their workday interrupted to defend themselves for their American right,” she continued.

“It is time for Frankel to retire, she does not represent this district well. I will be a Representative that treats everyone with dignity and respect. I have heard too many stories like this from my hometown voters about Lois Frankel.”
