Helloooo, major tool alert! Senator Cory Booker, who is also a 2020 presidential candidate, is telling us all how he really feels.
While appearing on "Late Night with Seth Meyers," Booker explains how the president is a "weak specimen" and states that his testosterone makes him want to punch Trump.
“Donald Trump is a guy who — you understand, he hurts you,” Booker said, “My testosterone sometimes makes me want to feel like punching him, which would be bad for this elderly, out of shape man that he is if I did that. This physically weak specimen.”
“But you see what I’m talking there? That’s his tactics and you don’t beat a bully like him, fighting him, on his tactics, on his terms, using his turf,” he added, “He’s the body shamer. He’s the guy that tries to drag people into the gutter.”
So not only does he exclaim that Trump is weak, despite his common displays of dominance, he admits to wanting to physically assault the president. What a stand-up guy...NOT!
Booker recalled a time while he was campaigning in Iowa and, prior to taking the stage at a rally, a former Stanford University tight end approached him. The football player reportedly put his arm around Booker and asked that the New Jersey senator punch Trump in the face. Booker reportedly replied that such an action would be a felony.
“This is a moral moment in America, and to me, what we need for our next leader, especially after the time for moral vandalism that we’re in right now, is we need a leader that’s not going to call us to the worst of who we are, but call us to the best of who we are,” Booker said. “In this moral moment we need to not to talk about necessarily what we’re against, but what we’re for, and the best way of looking at this is just our history.”
“The gardens of our democracy have never been free of the weeds of bigotry, hatred, demagoguery,” Booker added, “Every generation has had them.”
“We will not beat Donald Trump by trying to be more like him, but by showing that we are not like him,” he concluded, “We are not weak morally, we are not weak mentally, we’re a strong nation and we’re a nation that unites.”
