'You're an Assh*le:' Woman Shames Florida Governor over Medicaid at Starbucks

Florida Gov. Rick Scott isn't shying away his tense encounter with a woman who accosted at him during his visit to a local Starbucks this week, blasting her in a video posted to YouTube on Friday.

The heated interaction was captured in a video that quickly went viral where a woman, identified by local media as Cara Jennings, goes on a tirade against the politician.

Jennings began verbally attacking Scott over his decision to approve legislation that regulates abortion providers and cuts funding for Medicaid in the Sunshine State, according to reports. In the brief confrontation that was recorded (which can be seen here or in the video above), Gov. Scott is heard saying, "We've got a million jobs."

That's when Jennings retorted: "A million jobs? Great. Who here has a great job?!"

But, in the new video posted Friday and titled "Latte Liberal Gets an Earful," Gov. Scott's political committee tries to turn the tables on Jennings by outlining how the unemployment rate was cut in half and that there were 9,300 jobs created in the Gainesville area since Scott took office in 2011.

The narrator in the video also claims "that woman clearly has a problem" and "almost everybody" has a great job in Florida -- "except those who are sitting around coffee shops, demanding public assistance, surfing the internet and cursing at customers who come in."

The narrator also describes Jennings a "terribly rude woman" and claims that she's a self-proclaimed "anarchist" who refused to say the pledge of allegiance.
