NOT A GOOD SIGN: Cory Booker Says He Hopes to Welcome ‘New Jersey Giants’ to White House

posted by Hannity Staff - 7.09.19

Failing presidential candidate Cory Booker surprised sports fans in New York this week; saying he hopes to welcome the ‘New Jersey Giants’ to the White House should he win the 2020 election.

“Can I tell you a dream?” Booker said during a recent interview. “And I’m running for president for every reason, but this.”

“But should I become president of the United States, and the stars in the universe line up, and my team is the Super Bowl champions that year, I’m telling you right now, when they’re in the White House, I will turn to the world and say — it won’t be a slip of the tongue — I will say, ‘I am proud to be here with the New Jersey Giants. At that point, I figure I will have swagger, Secret Service, the nuclear codes. Are they really going to step to me and correct me?”

“No, they’re going to be fine with it. I think you’ll get – here’s the thing. New York, you’ve got enough. You took our Nets from us,” Booker joked.

Booker unveiled his new plan to “virtually eliminate” immigration detentions for those illegally entering the United States last week; adding the proposal is not an open-borders policy.

“When kids are being stripped away from their parents and held in cages, I will not wait for Congress to solve this crisis,” Booker said in a news release Tuesday. “On day one of my presidency, I will take immediate steps to end this administration’s moral vandalism.”

“Without waiting for Congress to act, Cory will stop the treatment of immigrants as criminals, close inhumane (Department of Homeland Security) facilities, end the use of for-profit detention facilities and end unnecessary barriers for refugees and those seeking asylum to virtually eliminate immigrant detention,” the news release said.

“As president, Cory will fight for legislation in Congress to reform our broken immigration system in a comprehensive way,” the news release stated, “but he won’t wait to act to end the system of mass detention.”

NOT A GOOD SIGN: Cory Booker Says He’s Open to Meeting Rabid Anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan

Just days after trashing former Vice President Joe Biden for his prior cooperation with well-known segregationists, Sen. Cory Booker hinted he’d be willing to hold private meetings  with rabid Anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan.

“I don’t feel the need to do that, but I’m not one of these people that says I wouldn’t sit down with anybody to hear what they have to say,” said Booker. “I am very familiar with Minister Louis Farrakhan and his beliefs and values.”

Farrakhan has routinely called Jews “termites” and “spawns of Satan.”

“President Trump has repeatedly condemned racism, bigotry, and anti-Semitism,” said a statement from President Trump’s re-election campaign. “Why can’t Democrats do the same?”

Booker slammed Biden for similar comments days ago.

“At least there was some civility,” said Biden. “We got things done. We didn’t agree on much of anything. We got things done.”

This is about him evoking a terrible power dynamic that he showed a lack of understanding or insensitivity to by invoking this idea that he was called son by white segregationists who, yes, they see in him their son,” Booker said during an interview on ABC’s “This Week.” “I heard from many, many African-Americans who found the comments hurtful.”

Booker left millions of educators scratching their heads earlier this month; bizarrely endorsing a program that seeks to end the “school-to-prison” pipeline by sending disruptive students to yoga classes.

“Fort Worthington Elementary School in Baltimore hired an instructor to teach children meditation and yoga. Instead of punishing children that cause problems with detention, teachers send the children to yoga class, according to a viral video posted by NowThis on Monday,” reports the Washington Examiner.

“This is amazing. When we talk about ending the school-to-prison pipeline, this is exactly the kind of thoughtful, innovative and commonsense practice to we need to adopt,” tweeted Booker on Tuesday.

“I knew that I had to provide my students with something different, right? A means of healing, a means of transforming their lives, a means of communicating through conflict, and even just proactively communicating with others,” Fort Worthington Principal Monique Debi states in the video.

New Jersey Senator Cory Booker’s campaign continued to lose momentum in the previous weeks; with the left-wing legislator begging Facebook users for $1 to help finance a “full team in this campaign.”

“Hello everybody, it’s Cory Booker speaking to you from our campaign headquarters in Newark, New Jersey. I’m asking for your help. We need folks to chip in $1. Can you pitch in $1 today to help us make sure we continue to have the resources we need to field a full team in this campaign?” asked Booker.

“With your help, we are going to continue to make strides in winning the nomination,” he added.

Beto O’Rourke’s campaign hit a similar snag on the campaign trail this week; where he spoke to less than 20 people in Oklahoma.

“Great being in Tulsa tonight for an important conversation about fighting dangerous efforts to roll back reproductive health care, working to ensure we achieve equal pay, and mobilizing to finally ratify the Equal Rights Amendment,” posted O’Rourke on social media.

 

The failing candidate confirmed last week that he’d “absolutely” do a Fox News town hall; directly rejecting Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s flat-out refusal to speak to the most-watched cable news network in America.

“Absolutely,” O’Rourke told supporters in eastern Iowa. “This campaign is about going to where people are, and you see that physically in where I show up. But it also has to be in those channels or those social media streams where people get their news and their information. That also includes Fox.”

“Very open to doing that,” he added, though stating his campaign was not currently in talks with the news network.

Anti-Trump crusader Elizabeth Warren refused an invitation to speak before a Fox News town Hall last week; saying she’s “turning them down” despite hovering at just 8% in recent polls.

“I love town halls. I’ve done more than 70 since January, and I’m glad to have a television audience be a part of them. Fox News has invited me to do a town hall, but I’m turning them down—here’s why,” posted Warren on social media.

“Fox News is a hate-for-profit racket that gives a megaphone to racists and conspiracists—it’s designed to turn us against each other, risking life and death consequences, to provide cover for the corruption that’s rotting our government and hollowing out our middle class,” she adds. “Hate-for-profit works only if there’s profit, so Fox News balances a mix of bigotry, racism, and outright lies with enough legit journalism to make the claim to advertisers that it’s a reputable news outlet. It’s all about dragging in ad money—big ad money.”
