Booker: Mentally Fit for Office?

The New Jersey Democrat erupts in a Senate hearing, accusing the DHS secretary of not feeling his hurt.

While much of the mainstream media has been questioning the status of President Donald Trump’s mental health, it appears that it is the senator from New Jersey whose mental stability could be called into question. During a Senate hearing Tuesday, Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) erupted in rage at Kirstjen Nielsen, secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, over Trump’s alleged “s—thole countries” comment.

Pounding his fists, Booker yelled, “When Dick Durbin called me, I had tears of rage when I heard about this experience in that meeting. And for you not to feel that hurt and that pain and to dismiss some of the questions of my colleagues … when tens of millions of Americans are hurting right now because they’re worried about what happened in the White House. That’s unacceptable to me.” Wow, hello snowflake-ville.

First off, it is flat out ridiculous to suggest that millions of Americans are hurting because of Trump’s alleged words. While Trump’s alleged words were crass, his point is valid. And if Booker is indeed “hurting,” then he needs to visit a mental health professional, pronto.

Secondly, and more significantly, where is the outrage from that party of outrage — those “women’s rights” feminists — over the fact that Booker, a man in a position of power, just publicly dressed down and belittled a woman? Where are the charges of sexism? Where are condemnations and demands for apologies from fellow 2020 presidential contenders Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) or Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA)? Recall how mere months ago Democrats blasted Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) for telling Warren to “sit down and shut up,” after she refused to end a speech after her allotted time had passed.

The truth is Democrats are the party of Hollywood. They play on emotions rather than truth and principles.
