'GET A GRIP': GOP Senator Tells Cory Booker to ‘GET A GRIP’ After Anti-Trump Meltdown
Republican Senator John Cornyn implored Cory Booker to settle down after his most recent anti-Trump meltdown this week; urging the liberal legislator to “get a grip” after he called Justice Kavanaugh supporters “complicit in evil.”
Cornyn was speaking on the Senate floor Wednesday when he called-on Booker to calm down after his recent tirade; adding that “everybody’s trying to out do everybody else.”
“I thought that would pretty much take the cake until I saw a report this morning that one of our colleagues across the aisle said that supporting Judge Kavanaugh would make you ‘complicit in evil,’” said Cornyn.
“It’s hard to take statements like that seriously. It’s completely unhinged and detached from any reality […] My advice to some of our friends across the aisle is get a grip, get a grip,” he added.
DEMOCRAT DISASTER: Poll Shows 69% of Americans OPPOSED to Abolishing ICE
A stunning new poll conducted by a longtime Clinton insider may spell disaster for the Democrats heading into the 2018 midterm elections; revealing a whopping majority of Americans are opposed to abolishing the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency.
The survey -conducted by Democratic pollster Mark Penn- shows most voters are in favor of stricter border controls, think those arrested while in the United States illegally should be sent back to their home countries, and largely support ICE agents enforcing federal law.
“Penn polled the newest progressive immigration proposal, the ‘Abolish ICE’ campaign to disband U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Sixty-nine percent of those surveyed (78 percent of Republicans, 59 percent of Democrats, and 73 percent of independents) said ICE should not be abolished, while 31 percent said it should,” writes the Washington Examiner.
A growing number of leading Democrats -including NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, and others- have called for the abolishment of ICE in recent weeks, saying the agency was “broken” and failed to represent the values of the United States.
