As NYC restaurant waiter Paul Kasenflangel related the story, it began pleasantly like most dining experiences. “I welcomed Mr. Cruz and introduced myself as I normally do and placed the menu and wine lists in front of him. He gave me a grimace that I interpreted as a smile but when I asked if he would like tap or bottled water the problems started. “Tap water!, he fairly shrieked at me and demanded that I cut out the trick questions.
As I calmly poured the water, I attempted to describe the evening’s specials, when he abruptly demanded that I stop making things complicated and bring him steak and fries with a bottle of A1. I explained that we had no A1 steak sauce but I would be happy to bring him Lea and Perrin’s Worcestershire. I saw this little vein in his forehead begin to swell and throb as he stood, slamming his fist and napkin down on the table, knocking over the recently poured tap water. He started wailing like a 2 year old having a tantrum cause mommy won’t let him ride the Merry-Go-Round again. You liberal, entitled, model/singer/actor wannabe, he sneered. How dare you? Throwing himself onto the floor, face first, he began pounding his fists, demanding to be waited on by Sean Hannity or Bill O’Reilly.”
Hearing of the abusive questioning, GOP Chairman Reince Priebus canceled Ted’s reservation tomorrow evening at the exclusive restaurant Per Se and said Ted would just pick up a slice of pizza at Ray’s.
