Failing presidential candidate Cory Booker swiped at South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg Monday; accusing the politician of “doing the NRA’s work for them” by referring to his gun buyback program as a “confiscation.”
“Calling buyback programs ‘confiscation’ is doing the NRA’s work for them, @PeteButtigieg—and they don’t need our help,” posted Booker on social media.

Cory Booker joined fellow Democrat Beto O’Rourke on gun control this week; confirming he would support a “mandatory buyback program” on “assault rifles.”
“Mandatory buyback or voluntary buyback?” asked the MSNBC moderator.
“This is another thing, to me, that’s just absurd… We’re talking about assault rifles. The overwhelming majority of Americans, over 75%, does not believe we should have weapons of war on our streets,” said Booker.
“You have a mandatory buyback program,” he added.

Booker managed to meet his last-minute fundraising deadline over the weekend; vowing to continue his quest to take-on President Trump in the 2020 race for the White House.
“Sen. Cory Booker’s (D-N.J.) White House campaign said that it met its goal of raising $1.7 million dollars a Monday deadline and announced the senator will continue his bid for the presidency,” reports The Hill.
“When we made the decision to be completely honest with folks about where we stood and what we needed to raise to put this campaign on a path to be successful, we didn’t know how people would respond,” Booker said in a statement.
“I’ve been overwhelmed by the response, and I couldn’t be more grateful to everyone who pitched in. This moment is a testimony to the power of what’s possible when people unite in common purpose and work toward a shared goal,” he added.

BOOKER GOES BERSERK: Cory Says He’d Like to Punch ‘Elderly’ Donald Trump, Blames ‘Testosterone’
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.”
BOOKER GOES BERSERK: Cory Says Kavanaugh Supporters ‘COMPLICIT IN EVIL’
Hyper-liberal Senator Cory Booker exploded on those supporting the President’s pick to join the Supreme Court Tuesday; saying those in favor of confirming Brett Kavanaugh are “complicit in evil.”
Booker was speaking alongside fellow Democrats -including Sen. Elizabeth Warren- when he viciously smeared those behind Kavanaugh’s nomination; adding the United States was in a “moral moment.”
“There’s so much at stake here, this has nothing to do with politics, it has to do with who we are as moral leaders… In a moral moment there is no neutral. In a moral moment there are no bystanders. You’re either complicit in evil […] or you’re fighting against it,” said the Senator.
“There’s a saying in the Abrahamic faiths one of the Psalms that says ‘Yea though we walk through the valley of the shadow of death.’ We are walking through the valley of the shadow of death. But that doesn’t say ‘Though I sit in the valley of the shadow of death,’ it doesn’t say, ‘I’m watching on the sidelines of the valley of the shadow of death, it says, ‘I am walking through the valley of the shadow of death,’” he added.
