Chef has a CAN’T MISS recipe for dealing with Ted Cruz protesters — just add water!

cruz-rsg15An Arkansas restaurateur thought some Ted Cruz protesters were all wet — then he made sure of it!

The Texas senator and Republican presidential hopeful was enjoying a meal with Republican Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson in Little Rock last week when the loud group of protesters arrived.

“We wanted to make sure that [Cruz] heard from us,” protester Robert Nunn told ABC affiliate KATV.

They made sure a lot of people heard them. Including a guy who dumped a bucket of water right down on them.

“I looked up and I saw, it was clearly one of the employees, he had a white jacket on and he had a bucket and I was like, ‘Hmm, what’s going on with that?’” Nunn told reporters. “And before I knew what happened, he had dumped it.”

It was executive chef and co-owner of the restaurant, Payne Harding, who apologized afterwards:

“On behalf of myself, Cache Restaurant and my family I would like to issue my sincerest of apologies to …  every individual affected by the events that took place last evening.  This was a heat of the moment action driven by frustration; these actions were in no way shape or form politically motivated.   Customers were having difficulty entering and exiting the restaurant and I thought it was causing a problem for my business.  I did not know who the protesters were or what they were protesting.  It was as simple as a poor decision that, given the opportunity to make again, I would obviously think about the consequences before I acted.  Cache is, and will always be, an establishment that welcomes everyone.  There is no excuse for my actions, and I sincerely apologize.”

Now, maybe the protesters will apologize for disrupting a man’s business.
