BOOKER GOES NUCLEAR: Cory Compares DHS Secretary to NAZIS, Trump to HITLER

posted by Hannity Staff - 1.19.18

New Jersey Senator Cory Booker continued his non-stop rampage against President Trump’s “tough talk” on immigration reform on Friday, breathlessly claiming DHS Secretary Nielsen was enabling Trump’s “racism,” adding “we know what happened in Europe” when leaders acted this way.

Booker was speaking with “The Breakfast Club” radio program when he was asked to comment on his recent rant against Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, where he “cried tears of rage” and labeled the DHS boss as “complicit” in Trump’s “racism.”

“People who stood by and did nothing when they hear bigotry are complicit in that bigotry. We know this from history and we know this from recent experiences in our communities, and it’s outrageous to see it in the highest office in the land,” said Booker.

“I don’t care who you are […] If you come after Jews, if you come after Muslims, if you come after Haitians, El Salvadorians, come after my fellow American citizens, I will not tolerate it,” he added.

“She should be the same way as opposed to just doing her job. We know what happened in Europe when people just did their jobs,” said the Senator.

BOOKER’S RAMPAGE: Cory Booker UNDER FIRE for ‘MANSPLAINING” to DHS Secretary

posted by Hannity Staff - 1.17.18

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.”
