Ted Cruz Heckled at D.C. Restaurant for Supporting Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh

Posted By on Tue, Sep 25, 2018 at 11:55 AM

Sen. Ted Cruz may have had a bad taste in his mouth after being heckled while dining at a Washington D.C. restaurant.

On Monday night, Cruz ran into a group of activists who oppose Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, chanting "We believe survivors!" The incident was caught on camera and, of course, shared to Twitter via @SmashRacismDC.

In the video, a woman confronts Cruz and tells him she's a sexual assault survivor.
"Do you believe survivors?" she asks Cruz. "Senator, I have a right to know what your position is on Brett Kavanaugh."

Cruz is a known Kavanaugh supporter despite the Supreme Court nominee being accused of sexual misconduct.

The senator appeared to be flustered, saying "God bless you, ma'am."

Another activist bluntly told Cruz "Beto is way hotter than you, dude."
After the group chased Cruz out of the restaurant, one activist can be heard yelling, "Ted Cruz and Brett Kavanaugh are best friends!"

Also on Monday, survivors of sexual assault gathered outside Cruz's office in Austin to express support of Christine Blasey Ford and Deborah Ramirez, the women who have accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct in the '80s.
