Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) is a man torn between darkness and light. The dichotomy is jarring.

Thanks to The Washington Free Beacon for the super cut:

On one hand, he speaks eloquently about loving his fellow America, putting aside partisanship and embracing our differences as strengths.

On the other, he speaks darkly about the “evil” of things like supporting conservative Supreme Court justice nominees and opposing Obamacare.

Booker goes from telling Jimmy Kimmel he seeks to “generate more love” to combat hate to saying those in support of Brett Kavanaugh are “complicit in the evil.”

He goes from telling CNN he loves Donald Trump to berating Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen about his “tears of rage” over Trump’s remarks about African countries.

He goes from telling the Democratic National Convention that “we are a nation of love” to saying letting Obamacare fail is “sinister” and “evil.”

He goes from saying we need to stop the “bulls—t partisanship” in America to comparing Nielsen to Nazi enablers in Europe.

Sometimes, he splits the difference, saying he supports the idea of publicly confronting Trump administration officials, but doing it with “love.”
