Jussie Smollett’s all but confirmed hate crime hoax provided a huge misstep for lefty journalists, celebrities and politicians, who were immediately ready to take his inconsistent story at face value and hit common Americans over the head with it. As soon as the Empire actor began peddling his bizarre story, the whole showbiz world came to his support, hysterically calling it evidence of a white supremacy and anti-LGBTQ epidemic.
Going “green” will require a lot of green, apparently. Two U.S. legislators have a proposal designed to require substantial changes to every building in the U.S., create rail “at a scale where air travel stops becoming necessary,” replace all “combustion engine-vehicles” within a decade, and guarantee everyone a “job,” higher education, “healthy food,” and much more.
The tangled web of CBS journalists and Democrats continued on Monday as CBS This Morning co-host Gayle King, a “supporter” and “friend” of Cory Booker, interviewed the 2020 presidential candidate. CBS, this time, alerted viewers to the conflict of interest, something the network hasn’t done in the past. Booker is just the latest Democrat King has supported despite her supposedly neutral role as a co-host.
Newly announced 2020 presidential candidate Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) made the media rounds Friday after several other Democrats threw their hats in the ring this week. Booker made his first stop at ABC’s The View, where he was pressed from the left by co-hosts Joy Behar and Ana Navarro. Co-host Meghan McCain however questioned Booker’s reputation for inauthenticity and grandstanding, to which the Democrat contested, saying he was “proud” of his shamefully partisan performance at the Brett Kavanaugh hearings.
Along with California Democrat Kamala Harris, it’s becoming evident that, at this early moment in the 2020 presidential campaign, fellow Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) has become a liberal media darling and that was on display on New Day moments after his Friday morning announcement. In a 12-minute stretch, CNNers marveled at the “energy” and “freshness” emanating from such a “force of nature” that “people want to touch.”
Though Cory Booker has a long history of distortions and making things up, two of the three networks on Friday avoided this inconvenient fact while hyping the Democrat’s just-announced presidential bid. Only ABC’s Good Morning America mentioned Booker’s tendency towards “embellishing” the truth.
The October 25 episode of Hulu’s I Love You, America with Sarah Silverman took a break from its usual diatribe of insulting Trump and conservatives. Just kidding. This week, Silverman focused on bashing Trump and conservatives while giving praise to modern Spartacus Senator Cory Booker. She has truly become that predictable.
El senador Cory Booker (D-NJ) compareció recientemente al semanario político Al Punto de Univisión donde admitió la premisa de varios artículos que surgieron durante las pasadas semanas, es decir, que los demócratas están teniendo dificultades para persuadir a los hispanos a que voten por ellos en las elecciones de medio término de 2018.
U.S. Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) appeared on Univision’s weekly political affairs talk show Al Punto, and admitted the veracity of the basis of several thinkpieces to emerge over the past few weeks - namely, that the Democrats are having a tough time persuading Hispanics to vote for them in the 2018 midterm elections.
CNN political analyst Chris Cillizza took a typical liberal stand for Sen. Cory Booker on Friday. He criticized the Daily Caller for running a story headlined "Booker facing criticism for Kavanaugh reaction after admitting to groping friend in high school." You can't compare Kavanaugh's controversy with Cory Booker's feminist story-telling in a Stanford Daily column about how grabbing a girl's breast without her consent, he insisted:
New York Times congressional reporter Carl Hulse once again rationalized and trumpeted childish and undignified Democratic tactics during Senate Judiciary hearings, in the party’s cynical yet (so far) failed attempt to derail Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court. Hulse on Saturday celebrated the Democrats showing their voters "that they would not be bulldozed by Republicans."
The most embarrassing moment throughout the entire confirmation process for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh didn’t even involve him directly. In an obvious case of grandstanding Thursday, New Jersey Senator Cory Booker issued hollow threats about released allegedly confidential e-mails from the nominee, which he said could get him expelled from the Senate. Despite being called out for his presidential ambitions, Booker pompously declared it was his “I am Spartacus moment.”
