2016 presidential candidate Martin O’Malley yelled at acting deputy secretary of the Department of Homeland Security Ken Cuccinelli when they ran into each other at a D.C. bar on Wednesday.
O’Malley, the former Democratic governor of Maryland, was at the Dubliner, a Capitol Hill Irish pub popular on Thanksgiving Eve, and was speaking to Villanova University’s Siobhan Arnold at the time Cuccinelli walked in. He promptly unloaded on the Trump official for the administration’s family separation policy at the southern border.
“O’Malley was shouting,” Arnold told the Washington Post. “I don’t think Cuccinelli was responding. I think he’s like, ‘Time to go. Just got here and I’m leaving.’ He pretty much retreated.”
She also said that O’Malley brought up Cuccinelli’s grandparents as the event unfolded. The two men went to the same school, Gonzaga College High School, but graduated five years apart.
Martin O’Malley just drove Ken Cuccinelli out of the Dubliner in DC w/ a passion-laced and shame-invoking tirade on behalf of immigrant refugee children!!!
