Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., might think twice before he ever interrupts Sen. Chuck Grassley mid-speech again.

The Iowa Republican, the second-highest Senate official, appeared furious Thursday when he was forced to stop his energy policy remarks and yield the Senate floor to McConnell.

“I hope the next time I get a chance to have the floor, I won’t be interrupted,” he bellowed, a clip posted on Twitter showed.

According to Politico’s Jake Sherman, Grassley raised his voice to McConnell, saying “you’re rude. You’re just simply rude.”

McConnell apologized afterward, Sherman reported, and the Senate vets shook hands and both laughed.

McConnell elbowed his way to the podium to announce that President Donald Trump would sign a compromise spending bill to keep the government fully open.

McConnell also said Trump planned to declare a national emergency to get more money for a barrier at the U.S.-Mexico border. McConnell said he would support Trump's declaration, which is all but certain to face legal challenges.
