Leading Republicans -and a handful of liberals- are slamming left-wing Senator Cory Booker’s outrageous attacks on Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen on Tuesday; accusing the Democratic legislator of “mansplaining” to the Director during a highly-anticipated Senate committee.
The controversy erupted when the New Jersey legislator viciously lashed-out at Nielsen over President Trump’s “tough dialogue” while discussing immigration with Congressional negotiators, saying she was “complicit” in the President’s “racism.”
“The commander-in-chief, in an Oval Office meeting, referred to people from African countries and Haitians with the most vile and vulgar language,” Booker said, screaming at Nielsen. “Your silence and amnesia is complicity.”
Booker’s aggressive and increasingly hostile posture prompted Republican National Committee Rapid Response Director Michael Ahrens to refer to the prominent Democrat’s actions as “mansplaining,” the millennial term used to describe men speaking down, or derogatorily, to women.
“Picture it,” said Ahrens. “A male Republican senator spends his entire 10 minutes ‘mansplaining’ the female DHS secretary about immigration policy, throws around the term ‘conscientious stupidity,’ yells at her the only time she tries to speak, and concludes his diatribe without even asking her to respond.”
LIBERAL BREAKDOWN: Cory Booker Cries ‘TEARS OF RAGE’ Over Trump’s Tough Talk
Liberal New Jersey Senator Cory Booker had a full-fledged meltdown in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday, telling his colleagues that he “hurts” and “cried tears of rage” after hearing President Trump’s “tough talk” regarding the ongoing immigration debate.
The left-wing legislator –and possible 2020 presidential contender- went nuclear on the Senate floor this week, screaming at his fellow lawmakers and saying “when Dick Durbin called me I had tears of rage when I heard about his experience in this meeting.”
“I hurt… 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,” Booker screamed.
Booker’s comments are the latest example of the mainstream media and liberal lawmakers total meltdown over President Trump’s “tough dialogue” in regards to immigration reform.
Trump has routinely called for a merit-based immigration system, the end to the “visa lottery” and “chain migration,” and has pledged their can be no agreement on DACA without fully funding a border wall.

BARACK STRIKES BACK: Obama Jumps into Alabama Senate Race, RIPS Roy Moore
Former President Barack Obama waded into Alabama’s special election race on Monday, blasting GOP nominee Roy Moore in a series of recorded phone messages that urged residents to “get out and vote” for Democrat Doug Jones.
“Doug Jones is a fighter for equality, for progress,” says the former President. “Doug will be our champion for justice. So, get out and vote, Alabama.”
“This one’s serious,” Obama adds. “You can’t sit it out.”
President Donald Trump recorded a similar message last week, imploring GOP supports to help send Roy Moore to the United States Congress; adding that the last thing Alabama residents want is Doug Jones representing them in the US Senate.
“We need Roy voting for us,” Trump says in the recording. “I am stopping illegal immigration and crime. We’re building a stronger military and protecting the Second Amendment and our pro-life values. But if Alabama elects liberal Democrat Doug Jones, all of our progress will be stopped cold. We already know Democrat Doug Jones is a puppet of Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, and he will vote with the Washington liberals every single time.”
Embattled GOP Senate hopeful Roy Moore is behind in recent polling, following weeks of controversies surrounding his candidacy. Last month, multiple women came forward and acused the Alabama judge of inappropriate sexual relationships while the women were teenagers nearly 40 years ago.
