Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) was forced out of the D.C. restaurant Fiola on Monday night by protesters denouncing his friendship with Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. An activist group posted a video on Twitter showing Cruz and his wife being chased out of the restaurant by protesters chanting “We believe survivors!” At one point, a man tells Cruz that Beto O’Rourke, the Democrat running against him in November, is “way hotter” than him. Another asks if he will “confirm [his] best friend Brett Kavanaugh?” Cruz then tells the loud crowd “God bless you” and asks them to let his wife through. In a separate clip, a woman claiming to be his constituent asks him how he will vote on Kavanaugh’s confirmation and if he “believes survivors.” Cruz responds, “God bless you, ma’am.” Protesters also gathered outside Cruz’s Austin office earlier Monday to support Christine Blasey Ford and Deborah Ramirez, who have both accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct.
I support the rights of people to protest, and I certainly despise Ted Cruz, but I have to say that this public shaming still makes me uncomfortable.
It’s just not my style, and I worry that it makes us look a little out of control.
I am all in favor of showing up to town halls and asking him tough questions, protesting outside of his office, and filling his email box with demands that he vote no on Kavanaugh, but let the man eat.
Sorry, don’t mean to be a buzzkill, but that is what I think.
Feel free to disagree with me.
