Rapidly fading presidential candidate Cory Booker left millions of educators scratching their heads this week; 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. https://t.co/ilVp4BTfT9

“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.
Challenge accepted! My staff is having a donor goal competition and I want in. Would you consider chipping in $1 to our campaign? https://coryb.kr/2VEMq66

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.

Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel unloaded on Sen. Cory Booker Tuesday, slamming the New Jersey legislator for using “crocodile tears” to fundraise off President Trump’s pick to join the Supreme Court.
McDaniel blasted Booker hours after Brett Kavanaugh arrived at the US Capitol to kick-start his Senate confirmation process; saying the left-wing lawmaker was using the public hearings to raise funds for his campaign.
“Cory Booker is using his crocodile tears as a ploy to raise money. It’s pathetic,” she tweeted.

“She gave a speech where the President has pounced on words in a way that is outrageously unacceptable. It’s not only inspiring death threats against her, but it’s deepening the worst types of hatred and bigotry and this is unacceptable,” said Booker.
Rep. Omar found herself the center of a national controversy last week after she flippantly referred to the September 11th terror attacks that took the lives of nearly 3,000 Americans as “some people” who “did something.”
