Little could Florida Gov. Rick Scott have known when he entered a Starbucks in Gainsville that he was about to get an earful from a liberal activist who had noticed him walk in.

Starbucks in downtown Gainesville today a woman tells Rick Scott what she thinks.

A liberal activist Cara Jennings said : " You strip 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 poor people like us need health services, you cut them. Shame on you, Rick Scott! You’re an embarrassment to our state!"

Richard Lynn "Rick" Scott is an American businessman and politician who has been the 45th Governor of Florida, since 2011. He is a member of the Republican Party of Florida.

In 2014, he won re-election over former Republican turned Democratic challenger, former governor Charlie Crist and several third-party and independent candidates.

Scott's net worth was estimated at $218.6 million in 2010, $83.8 million in 2012, and $132.7 million in 2013. On July 1, 2015, it was reported that Scott's net worth had grown to $147 million.

For the United States presidential election in 2016 Scott endorsed fellow Republican Donald Trump.

The politician Mike Huckabee shared on Facebook : "This must-see video of former Gainesville, Florida, city commissioner and liberal activist Cara Jennings has gone viral. How did civil discourse degenerate to the level that anyone would find this kind of behavior anything other than obnoxious? Gov. Rick Scott entered a Starbucks, and Jennings started screaming and cursing him for not going along with the ruinously expensive Obamacare Medicaid expansion, which 18 other states also refused to adopt. Instead of taking advantage of this opportunity to make a persuasive case to the governor, she made a public spectacle of herself, ironically calling him an embarrassment to the state.

While some are lauding her “in-your-face” protest, most just gave her a face-palm for being rude and counterproductive. Greg Gutfeld blasted her for demanding more free stuff from the government while using an expensive laptop and drinking a $7 coffee. Judging from her actions, she might want to drink a little less coffee. If I could make a polite suggestion to her, it would be to use that laptop to visit Amazon, where for only $1.99, you can get the Kindle edition of Dale Carnegie’s “How To Win Friends And Influence People.” Hint: it doesn’t involve screaming and cursing at them in public."
