All Florida Governor Rick Scott wanted was a cup of coffee. Instead, he got berated by an angry woman at a Gainesville, Fla. Starbucks.

Cara Jennings was caught on a camera phone by another customer accosting Scott, and even calling him an a—hole.

“You cut Medicaid, so I couldn’t get Obamacare. You’re an a—hole. You don’t care about working people. You should be ashamed to show your face around here.”

Jennings commented to a local ABC affiliate, “I didn’t think about whether I should [confront him] or not. I thought, ‘Here’s my chance to tell the governor how I feel about the horrible bill.’”

Scott briefly responded in the video saying, “Oh really, cause we got a million jobs.”

Jennings continued her tirade as Scott began to leave, skipping the coffee:

You stripped women of access to public health care. Shame on you, Rick Scott! We depend on those services. Rich people like you don’t know what to do. When poorer people like us need services you cut them. Shame on you, Rick Scott! You’re an embarrassment to our state!

As Scott was leaving and during Jennings rant, Scott said, “Maybe you should [inaudible] and tell the truth.”

Possibly the best part of the entire video came at the end when the person taking the video realized what he had just recorded and simply said, “Sweet.”
