“They had no respect for the restaurant or the staff or the other people dining or people like me who simply have different political views,” Greene tweeted. “They are self-righteous, insane, and completely out of control.”
She says that she and her staff were working at a table in the restaurant and were not aware of the duo’s presence until they started shouting.
