Failing Democratic presidential candidate Cory Booker took his attacks against the White House to new heights Monday night; saying he’d like to physically attack an “Elderly” Donald Trump due to “testosterone.”
“Donald Trump is a guy who you understand he hurts you, and 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,” Booker told comedian Seth Meyers. “This physically weak specimen.”
“You don’t beat a bully like him fighting him on his tactics, on his terms, using his turf,” Booker said. “He’s the body-shamer, he’s the guy that tries to drag people in the gutter.”
“We will not beat Donald Trump by trying to be more like him, but by showing that we are not like him,” he added. “We are not weak morally. We are not weak mentally. We are a strong nation.”
According to insiders, Booker’s campaign is rapidly running out of cash.
The packed Democratic presidential field will likely become less crowded in the coming weeks, with major campaigns of national candidates quickly running out of cash heading into the second televised debate.
“Among those with the highest burn rates, according to Federal Election Commission records, are New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke, New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker and Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard. Former Maryland Rep. John Delaney was also listed as having spent several million more than he raised, but the candidate has since said the numbers were misreported,” reports Fox News.
“It’s never a good sign,” Larry Sabato, director of University of Virginia’s Center for Politics, said. “I’m not going to write them all off, let’s see what happens in the second debate.”
“I would say that for O’Rourke, and several of the others really, a stellar debate performance is essential,” Sabato said. “No one could watch his campaign and say that Beto O’Rourke was doing really well. He’s not. They expected a lot more than this.”
