When your two US Senators are Democrats you're bound to be repeatedly embarrassed by their antics. But sheesh, Cory Booker and Bob Menendez really outdid themselves today.
Booker broke with 228 years of tradition and became the first sitting US Senator to publicly speak out against the confirmation of his colleague Jeff Sessions as Attorney General. Why? Because he's running for president in 2020, and he's a horse's ass.
As Democrats look to regroup after their unexpected loss to Trump, Booker's name has been floated as a potential front-runner to lead the Democratic Party's presidential bid in 2020. Publicity is likely a big motivator behind Booker's commitment to thrust his own views of Sessions into the spotlight.
He's gotta appear to be more radical than Lizzie "Fauxcahontas" Warren. And face it, the libtard wing of the Democratic party eats this shit up. Too bad he's an empty suit, with little appeal outside of New Jersey and other coastal enclaves. And then there's the small matter of his entanglement with the rampant corruption in the Newark Watershed Commission, where his protege Linda Watkins-Brashear pleaded guilty to multiple felonies involving bribery and official misconduct. Not to mention his sweetheat deal with his old law firm of Trenk, DiPasquale wherein they continued to pay him a salary when he was mayor of Newark while he steered lucrative no-bid city contracts their way.
It's like the Clinton Foundation, only without the foreign "investments." (Ah, give him time, I'm sure he can rustle up a few checks from the United Arab Emirates. -- Ed.)
Cory Booker won't be president. Of that I can assure you.
Meanwhile, his partner in mendacity, Bob Menendez, was busy making a fool of himself questioning Secretary of State nominee Rex Tillerson. Bob wanted to know why Tillerson supported Trump's border wall with Mexico.
I also want to point out that the last time a country tried to wall itself completely from its neighbor was in Berlin in 1961, and that wall was constructed by communist East Germany.
Yo Bob. The Berlin wall was created to keep East Germans in. Trump's wall is gonna keep illegal aliens out. But other than that, the two walls are like totally the same.
Try reading a book Bob. You might learn something.
Hey New Jersey. You elected this bozo? Shame on you.
Oh BTW, he's under indictment. It's gotta take a boatload of corruption for a Democratic administration to indict a US Senator of their own party. Heck, the case must be ironclad, or political hack Paul Fishman wouldn't have put his John Hancock on it, because Fishman didn't touch Jon Corzine and you'd have to be blinder than Stevie Wonder not to see his guilt.
Sorry Bob, but your credibility is shot. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law.
Completely unrelated, but fun to point out, the Feds raided Orange city hall today in an ongoing fraud investigation. Is Orange, NJ run by Democrats? Is there a mustache in Mexico? Yes to both! But you already knew that.
Cory and Bob, your ineffective and unsuccessful attempts at character
assassination are noted, and rejected. Sit down. Shut up. Jeff Sessions
and Rex Tillerson will both be confirmed. And then the Real Fun will begin!
