The day after Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), and his wife, Heidi, were expelled out of Fiola, a restaurant in Washington D.C., by members of “Smash Racism DC“ due to accusations of sexual misconduct against Judge Brett Kavanaugh, the restaurant broke the silence and revealed their side of the story.
The restaurant released a statement in which they explained that the Cruz family have the opportunity to return to finish their meal in peace:
Last night, protesters entered Fiola with the apparent purpose of confronting one of our guests. Recognizing that there was potential for escalation, our stellar management team immediately diffused the situation. Per our policy for events of this nature, the police were called and the guest escorted to privacy — our highest priority is always the well-being of our customers. When the situation resolved a few minutes later, our guests returned to thank the staff for their support and to finish their exceptional meal.
“The FT group welcomes all patrons and is proud of its reputation not just of culinary excellence but also of creating a welcoming space for all, irrespective creed, ideology or opinion,” their statement continued. “Chef Fabio believes politics — like elbows — are best left off the dining table and we welcome everyone’s.”
The protesters shouted and chanted at the couple while surrounding them and blocking their path several times as they tried to leave.
BREAKING. Activists just chased @TedCruz out of a fancy Washington DC restaurant, chanting “We Believe Survivors!”
Cruz has been friends with creep Kavanaugh for 20 years. Now Cruz is on judiciary committee hearing his testimony.

In a follow-up tweet that has since been deleted, “Smash Racism DC” sent a chilling warning to other Republicans.
“This is a message to Ted Cruz, Bret Kavanaugh, Donald Trump and the rest of the racist, sexist, transphobic, and homophobic right-wing scum: You are not safe. We will find you. We will expose you. We will take from you the peace you have taken from so many others,” the group tweeted.
