For each Clarence Thomas’ fanciful jurisprudence, if Morton’s was not cited by the Founders, Kavanaugh has no privacy rights or protected freedoms at stake in “dinner at Morton’s.”
Sorry, them’s the policies.
Thomas makes them, the rest of us just check out to stick to his wild, deranged tango.

Happy that Morton’s has weighed in with their lawful viewpoint that Kavanaugh has a ideal to “eat evening meal.” Though if we’re doing away with Unenumerated Legal rights predicated on the 14th amendment, I’m afraid “eat dinner” could possibly be the subsequent to go.

Brett Kavanaugh and Morton’s MAGA Steak House consider lying SCOTUS have a “appropriate” to eat in restaurants and not have protestors outdoors, but that 4th graders do not have a “proper” to go to faculty and be risk-free from becoming slaughtered by youthful MAGA adult males armed with AR-15’s.

So Morton’s Steak Home thinks the “flexibility to eat meal” is significantly much more critical than the flexibility to not be pressured into baby bearing. I guess they don’t want to give up their large income from Kavanaugh’s bar expenditures. #FuckMortonsSteakHouse
