Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh had his dinner at Morton’s Steakhouse completely ruined last night after a gaggle of pro-choice protesters gathered outside the front of the restaurant, forcing the accused sexual predator to flee out the backdoor.
On Wednesday night, D.C. protesters targeting the conservative Supreme Court justices who signed onto the Dobbs decision overturning the constitutional right to abortion got a tip that Justice Brett Kavanaugh was dining at Morton’s downtown D.C. location. Protesters soon showed up out front, called the manager to tell him to kick Kavanaugh out and later tweeted that the justice was forced to exit through the rear of the restaurant.
The steakhouse responded by condemning the protesters. In a statement, it said: “Honorable Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh and all of our other patrons at the restaurant were unduly harassed by unruly protestors while eating dinner at our Morton’s restaurant.”
“Politics, regardless of your side or views, should not trample the freedom at play of the right to congregate and eat dinner,” the statement continued. “There is a time and place for everything. Disturbing the dinner of all of our customers was an act of selfishness and void of decency.”
Kavanaugh, who likes beer, is one of the six conservative justices who voted to overturn Roe v. Wade last month, upending nearly 50 years of precedent which allowed abortion until about 24 weeks of pregnancy.
According to Politico, the justice was able to finish his meal before escaping out the back exit of the restaurant, although he didn’t get to enjoy a slice of Morton’s Legendary Hot Chocolate Cake® before he left.
Here’s what Twitter has to say about the whole thing…
Sorry Justice Kavanaugh. Like abortion, the right to eat in a restaurant is not in the Constitution. https://t.co/42Io22zI8D

If you’re appalled that protestors yelled outside a restaurant where Brett Kavanaugh was eating and find that to be uncivil, wait until you hear about the 10 year-old girl who had to travel to Indiana for medical care because Ohio wouldn’t permit her safe access to an abortion.

When I saw Justice Kavanaugh trend I hoped we finally discovered who paid all his dept, and that FBI was going to finally have a real investigation on him, and listen the 1000+ witness who came forwards…. But nope, he's simply upset 'cause he didn't had his dessert.

Dear @Mortons there is no constitutional right to eating your meal in peace. There's no biblical reference either. As Justice Kavanaugh is a proud constitutional originalist, I'm sure he understands the incident at your place may be considered bad manners, it's very ProAmerican

Justice Kavanaugh complains he couldn’t get a steak to go with his beer. Poor snowflake.
Lying to get appointed and then issuing bad decisions made to keep your corporate sponsors happy apparently have consequences.

"I was a Georgia Democrat. Then I heard Justice Kavanaugh didn't get to eat pie after his steak."

I feel terribly for Justice Kavanaugh.
He tried to make a choice, namely where his body should be and what should be inside of it.
Then a small group of people unrelated to him showed up and made it impossible for him to make that choice.
…hey wait a minute!

If Justice Kavanaugh doesn't want protesters to harass him because he was one of six Justices to vote to overturn Roe v. Wade, he should resign from the Supreme Court.
Facing angry constituents is part of being in the public eye, chief. Cry harder!

I hope "Justice" Kavanaugh never enjoys a peaceful meal in public for the rest of his life ?????
