Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh had to leave through a back door after pro-abortion protesters showed up at the DC steakhouse where he was having dinner.
Morton’s Steakhouse, where the incident took place, is a popular downtown hangout for Republicans.
We hear Kavanaugh snuck out the back with his security detail. @mortons should be ashamed for welcoming a man who so clearly hates women.

I wish every Supreme Court Justice a very fuck you, leave through the kitchen. I hope you paid for and didn’t get dessert. pic.twitter.com/ITvvMeBJhu

The pro-abortion group Ruth Sent Us, who previously doxed the home addresses of conservative Supreme Court justices took credit for the protest and claimed that they were tipped off by a Morton’s employee.
The tip about Kavanaugh dining at Morton’s came through our text line 413-FOR-RUTH. No privacy for us? No peace for you, #SCOTUS6! https://t.co/OhaGPNaoDe

“The tip about Kavanaugh dining at Morton’s came through our text line 413-FOR-RUTH. No privacy for us? No peace for you, #SCOTUS6!” the group tweeted.
One of our regular Wed #SCOTUS6 protestors sent this text: “Morton’s needed me to work tonight but mother f*cking Brett Kavanaugh is here eating. He could probably hear you from the street.” RT
The nation’s rage is growing. What would you do if you were his waiter? #SummerofRage pic.twitter.com/LFbFnFpYxZ

In a follow up tweet, the group said, “one of our regular Wed #SCOTUS6 protestors sent this text: ‘Morton’s needed me to work tonight but mother f*cking Brett Kavanaugh is here eating. He could probably hear you from the street.’ RT The nation’s rage is growing. What would you do if you were his waiter? #SummerofRage”
The restaurant issued a statement defending their customers right to eat in peace and is now being targeted by left-wing activists for doing so.
“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. 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,” Morton’s said in a statement, according to a report from Politico.
In response to their statement, prominent figures on social media began calling for people to harass them on social media, leave poor ratings and reviews, and book fake reservations at all of their locations — not just the one where the incident took place.
I normally wouldn’t support this because denying customers to a restaurant is going to deny tips to waitstaff who had nothing to do with their manager’s behavior. But according to Indeed, Morton’s servers have a base salary well above minimum wage so… go for it. https://t.co/ph6E9S0LEX

People exercised First Amendment rights on public property outside Morton’s. A company spokesperson called it “selfishness and void of decency.” https://t.co/Ts8Y36cVuq

Politico reported that Justice Kavanaugh’s meal was able to finish his meal without being confronted, “While the court had no official comment on Kavanaugh’s behalf and a person familiar with the situation said he did not hear or see the protesters and ate a full meal but left before dessert, Morton’s was outraged about the incident.”
