Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was reportedly forced to leave popular Washington D.C. eatery Morton’s through a back door after a group of angry protesters showed up at the restaurant following a tip of his presence there.
According to Politico, “Protesters soon showed up out front, called the manager to tell him to kick Kavanaugh out.”
The report from Politico came after a post from Twitter account @ShutDown_DC stating: “We hear Kavanaugh snuck out the back with his security detail. @mortons should be ashamed for welcoming a man who so clearly hates women.”
After the incident, social media users mocked the controversial Justice, with one tweeting: “Thoughts & prayers about Brett Kavanaugh having to leave out the back door before dessert.”
“I hope he never gets a quiet meal or a moment [of] peace ever again,” another user wrote.
We hear Kavanaugh snuck out the back with his security detail. @mortons should be ashamed for welcoming a man who so clearly hates women.

A spokesperson for Morton’s issued a statement confirming the incident and expressing outrage claiming, “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.”
The statement continued, “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.”
Kavanaugh has been accused of perjuring himself after he claimed in his confirmation hearings that Roe v Wade is “… settled as precedent of the Supreme Court… it has been reaffirmed many times,” only to vote to overturn it weeks ago.
