Ted Cruz Chased Out of DC Restaurant

UPDATE: Cruz's Democratic challenger Beto O'Rourke has spoken out against the protesters' bullying tactics.


Another Republican leader could not enjoy a meal out on the town this week because of his political beliefs. Sen. Ted Cruz (TX) and his wife Heidi went out for a meal in Washington, D.C., only to be chased out of the restaurant. It was a scene that's becoming all too familiar these days.

As you can hear in the video, a protester demands to know if Cruz supports Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, now that multiple women have accused him of sexual assault.

"There are now three people who have come forward and said Brett Kavanaugh has attacked them," the protester said. "I know that you're close friends, can you talk to him about that?"

"God bless you, ma'am," Cruz responded, before leaving the restaurant.

Other Republican leaders like Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, and Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, have recently been bullied simply trying to live their lives. 

Asked about her call for activists to "harass" White House employees back in June, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) says she didn't mean violence. But, she recently joked that she threatens Trump staffers "all the time."

Former White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer said shame on us.

Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) may have had the most astute observation though.
