Senator Booker Horrified By Trump’s Vulgar Language

Recently, at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing discussing the Department of Homeland Security oversight, Senator Cory Booker from New Jersey gave Kirstjen Nielsen, our Homeland Security Secretary, a lecture which referred to the President’s recent “sh*thole” comment.

Booker whined, “Now, I’ve been in the Oval Office many times and when the commander in chief speaks, I listened. I don’t have amnesia on conversations I had in the Oval Office going back months and months. I had individual meetings with the president and I’ve had group conversations where there was, as you said, cross-talk. And why—why is this so important? Why is this so disturbing for me? Why am I frankly, seething with anger? We have this incredible nation where we have been taught that it does not matter where you’re from, it doesn’t matter your color, your race, your religion, it’s about the content of your character. It’s about your values and your ideals, and yet we have language that from Dick Durbin to Lindsey Graham, they seem to have a much better recollection of what went on. You’re under oath. You and others in that room that suddenly cannot remember. It was Martin Luther King that said there’s ‘nothing in this world more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.’ And so here we are in the United States of America, and we have a history that is beautiful and grand and also ugly—where from this nation to others we know what happens when people sit by and are bystanders and say nothing. When Oval Office rhetoric sounds like social engineering, we know from human history the dangers of that.”

“The commander in chief in an Oval Office meeting referring to people from African countries and Haitians with the most vile and vulgar language. That language festers when ignorance and bigotry is aligned with power—it’s a dangerous force in our country. Your silence and amnesia is complicity. Right now in our nation we have a problem.”

“I hurt when Dirk Durbin called me. I had tears of rage when I heard about this experience in this meeting, and for you not to feel that hurt and that pain and to dismiss some of the questions of my colleagues saying, ‘I’ve already answered that line of questions,’ when tens of millions of Americans are hurting right now because of what they’re worried about what happened in the White House, that’s unacceptable to me. There are threats in this country, people plotting. I receive enough death threats to know the reality. Kamala receives enough death threats to know the reality. Mazie receives enough death threats to know the reality. And I have a president of the United States, whose office I respect, who talks about the countries of origins of my fellow citizens in the most despicable of manner. You don’t remember. You can’t remember the words of your commander in chief. I find that unacceptable.”

    Booker really needs to go back to drama school. His performance did not fool anyone. He’s an ignorant, rude bully. What are the voters in New Jersey thinking?

    • budman

      Booker is a Socialist for one and a phony because I am positive he heard Obama spew out a lot of expletives. I spent some time assisting with briefings with the military brass and members of Congress and I can tell you foul language is very common among them including our Presidents. He can complain all he wants but certain this is more about trying to embarrass the President than anything. I don’t know if you noticed but the Booker that campaigned is totally different than the Booker you see and hear now and the true Booker is now showing. Are the residents of New Jersey paying attention to this dishonesty?

      He needs to be fitted with a pair of cement shoes.

  • Aline

    Trump will clean the floor with morons like this!

  • mrp15

    Booker’s a raving lunatic whose erratic behavior to the DHS director was a disgrace. Proof of the double standard because if the shoe were on the other foot, the Republican would have been severely chastised and maybe even forced to step down. Years ago when HRC ran for NY governor and Rick Lazlo approached her space, he lost the election over that minor infraction. Heard a rumbling about sorry Cory when he as mayor of Newark and the millions of dollars lost in connection with the Newark Housing Authority. Before Cory aspires to what he is posturing for: POTUS–maybe we need to investigate that matter entirely. He’s nothing but a pathetic clown.

  • Harland Mayes

    The pretended outrage is so incredibly transparent. Im almost embarrassed for this snowflake. So there is almost no place this idiot can go without shedding tears at the typical language he must hear. Perhaps he was kept in a padded room all his pathetic life without having to deal with any “harsh” language.

  • Mark V

    He did not look to have the emotional stability of someone who is running for president. Trump the countries were undesirable, not the people.

  • mousekiller

    Get over your self Senator Booker. YOU say worse in everyday conversations , On your phone, in person over coffee and in the Senate dinning room., Your not special. Your no different than the rest of your kind .NJ is a shit hole.has been for several generations. Get used to it. It is permeated with corruption, greed and UN-American activities by your party. Your just trying to push the guilt away from your self for raping the country by your voting for bills that make you richer. Sit down, shut the hell up .Your part of the swamp.

    I’m horrified that someone like booker can actually get elected.that’s as stupid as electing hank johnson,pelosi,feinstein,reid,waters,jackson-lee,etc.the list is too long to print.

  • cathy

    he should shut up! peelosi said pooch ca ca, that’s ok, but it is still shit. the communist party of the United States has NOTHING else to talk about. LOOSERS!

  • Timothy Toroian

    Somebody tell Corrie he looks stupid yelling bout this stuff, such unimportant stuff, almost like crying wolf. Most significantly, I’m horrified that some one who considered to be a potential 2020 presidential candidate is “horrified” over insignificant bat pucky. AND I am not trying to be funny. He seems almost childish yelling like that about insignificance in a Senate hearing. The big Dummy. His handlers goofed.

  • Rodney

    What is wrong with these morons. How is it derogatory towards the people as individuals when their government creates a s***hole place for them to live and gets called for it? Cory Booker needs to apologize to Ms. Nielson. He was a bully, arrogant, condescending and an ass. He wasn’t in the meeting, so all his info is second hand at best.

  • Tk Matthews

    Look at the mouth on this person,does he look OK??

  • Dennis Anderson

    Before Obama ran for president the first time around he was video taped. He was talking about a black man and his barbeque ribs and pussy. Thats right it was way to vulgar for AM news dont you know. Ive had enough of this crap. If Trump said lup they would say down. No means yes, and left is right around the corner hanging out with I – dont – know ! I have never in my life seen so many ignorant people.

  • mallen11

    Evil people can only spew evil and make themselves fully known to the public.

  • theicecube

    As if someone from New Jersey has not heard bad language. That said, Booker is just joining the me-to type crowd of clowns that see others acting offended so they decide to act offended also. Well, I feel offended that these morons decided to claim President Trump made references he didnt and they know what he meant but instead they play dumb for their publicity. Booker had tears of rage about something he was told President Trump said, which is not what was said which makes him a gullible opportunist liberal parrot moron. President Trump was not referring to “people” which is what Booker is lying about while joining the ‘me-lie-too’ crowd. Booker you are a scammer cry me a river of rage.

  • Kris Kristian

    SENATOR BROOKER.
    HOW CAN YOU SAY “MOST VILE AND VULGAR LANGUAGE”
    I AM SURE THAT YOU ARE SO PURE, THAT YOU HAVE NEVER SAID ANYTHING LIKE THAT.
    WHY WERE SO QUIET WHEN ISRAEL SENT A FIELD HOSPITAL AND SEARCH CREWS TO
    DISASTER AREAS AFTER AN EARTH QUAKE, SAVED MANY LIVES AND
    WHAT DID THE MUSLIMS HAVE TO SAY?
    THE IDF IS STEALING BODY PARTS AND SELLING THIS ON THE OPEN MARKET FOR GAIN
    OF COURSE WHEN IT COMES TO THE MUSLIMS LYING ABOUT THE JEWS, THAT IS NOT VULGAR, SO YOU DID NOT ‘seeth with anger”
    You are a disgusting anti Semite

    Why were you not “seething with anger, when a former French FM referred to Israel as “THAT SHITTY LITTLE COUNTRY”?
    But of course that is ONLY Israel.
    Senator Brooker
    You are a disgrace to the US Senate. I hope they will expel you from the senate.

  • teachersaide

  • old_salty_dawg99
