Ted Cruz Chased Out Of DC Restaurant By Anti-Kavanaugh Protesters
Republican Texas Senator Ted Cruz was chased out of a DC restaurant by protesters on Monday night, according to video posted on Twitter.
Two videos were posted by “Smash Racism DC” and they show a large group of protesters chanting “We believe survivors” in reference to sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh at Sen. Cruz and his wife, Heidi Cruz.
One video shows a protester confronting Sen. Cruz and his wife as they entered the restaurant. Sen. Cruz tells the woman “God bless you” before attempting to take a seat at a table.
After the protesters surround the table, Sen. Cruz tells Mrs. Cruz, “Let’s go ahead and go” and puts on his jacket to leave.
“Vote no on Kavanaugh!” one protester screams. “Cancel Kavanaugh for women’s rights.”
Toward the end of a video, a restaurant employee can be heard asking the protesters to leave because the area is a “private space.”
A spokesperson for Sen. Cruz did not immediately return a request for comment.
