'Let him eat cake': AOC obliterates Morton's excuses for whisking Brett Kavanaugh out the back door
United States Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-New York) on Friday shared her thoughts on Supreme Court Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh having been snuck out the back end of the posh Morton's Steakhouse in Washington, DC on Wednesday evening because pro-choice protesters had learned of his location.
Kavanaugh reportedly finished his meal in peace but was unable to order dessert. And the restaurant put out a statement to Politico that was undeniably overdramatic and triggered widespread fury due to its babying of Kavanaugh.
"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," Morton's spokesperson said. "Politics, regardless of your side or views, should not trample the freedom at play of the right to congregate and eat dinner. 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."
For AOC and the millions of American women whose reproductive rights were retracted by the Supreme Court's ruling in Dobbs, Kavanaugh's portrayal as a victim only added insult to injury.
"Poor guy. He left before his soufflé because he decided half the country should risk death if they have an ectopic pregnancy within the wrong state lines. It’s all very unfair to him. The least they could do is let him eat cake," Ocasio-Cortez tweeted.
She then laid out the hypocrisy ingrained in the theatrics that accompanied Kavanaugh's minor inconvenience.
"I will never understand the pearl-clutching over these protests," she wrote. "Republicans send people to protest me all the time, sometimes drunk and belligerent. Nobody cares about it unless it’s a Republican in a restaurant. Can someone please explain the obsession because I don’t get it."
