BOOKER BACKLASH: RNC Chair RIPS ‘Pathetic’ Cory Over Kavanaugh Hearings
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.”
