Watch: Ted Cruz Runs Out Of Restaurant As Protesters Chase Him Shouting ‘We Believe Survivors’

On Monday night, Sen. Ted Cruz was chased out of a restaurant in Washington, DC, by a group of patrons-turned protesters — who shouted “We believe survivors” in protest of Judge Brett Kavanaugh and his Supreme Court bid.

Footage posted on Twitter by “Smash Racism DC” shows the demonstrators in action, some of whom approach the Texas lawmaker and speak to him directly.

“I know that you’re very close friends with Mr. Kavanaugh,” one woman says to him. “But do you believe survivors, sir? We believe survivors!”

Another woman, who described herself as a constituent and “survivor of sexual assault”, shouted: “Senator, I have a right to know what your position is on Brett Kavanaugh.”

The protesters eventually surround his table, prompting the Republican Senator and his wife to leave.

“Let’s go ahead and go,” Cruz can be heard saying.

Kavanaugh is facing sexual misconduct allegations from at least two women as lawmakers prepare to vote whether to place him on the Supreme Court.

Cruz has voiced his support for him but also called on the accusations to be addressed.

“Vote no on Kavanaugh!” one protester screamed at him. “Cancel Kavanaugh for women’s rights.”

Activists also gathered outside Cruz’s Austin and Dallas offices on Monday to protest against his support for Kavanaugh. Among them were sex assault survivors and members of the women’s rights group UltraViolet Action.

“A sexual predator does not belong in any position of power, let alone on the highest court in the nation,” an UltraViolet spokesperson told KVUE.

Christine Blasey Ford, Kavanaugh’s first accuser, is expected to testify at the Judiciary Committee hearing on Thursday. Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle asked the Supreme Court vote to be postponed until then.
