Sen. Cory Booker slammed the homeland security secretary in a speech Tuesday morning for claiming ignorance to the President's slander of African countries.

Senator Booker's contribution to the dem efforts to shut down the government of America's citizens over a DACA bill is far worse than anything President Trump ever allegedly said.

Democrats think because the Republicans were blamed the last time the Government shut down they will be blamed again. That won't happen. This time we can see the Democrats are using the shut down like a club over the President's head. They would rather bankrupt the country then send their illegal aliens home.

Booker was correct to call her out.

Her need to protect her dear leader was so obvious and sickening.

Trump was close to making a deal and he blew it up because he just had to make sure his base was pacified with more racist garbage.

He could not try harder to destroy his chances of accomplishing something.

This is on Trump and all those slimy scumbags hell-bent on defending the indefensible.

Trump is not a Monarch. Deference doesn’t play in the USA.

Democrats still don't get it. We have had it with simple-minded Democrats defending foreign criminals, burning, and looting, marching in little pink vagina hats. We are only voting for grown ups now. Go home.

Trump isn’t grown up.

You are not grown up.

Grown ups use facts, common sense and reason to solve problems.

Trump isn’t capable of any of that, so when he is presented with a bipartisan bill, he destroys its chances with racist remarks.

There are better ways to handle disagreements, but Trump’s poor upbringing doesn’t allow for it.

Booker is like a damn parrot, Trump racist! Trump racist! he wasn't there but acts as though he heard it, if more of these black Politian's would get off their lazy azzes and actually try to help instead of making sh!t up day in and day out we could get this country rolling along a lot faster, Booker takes his marching orders from his masters Schumer and Pelosi, he reminds me of one of those black faced statues that white folk have in their front lawn.

Cory Booker is a hypocrite. He calls the president a racist because of statement he has no idea if it was said or not. So he is yelling at this white woman with just rage and hate all over his face. I think he just showed the world what he is. Then, if this had been a white man on the committee questioning a black woman in this manner... all HECK would break loose on the media.

Deep down he is a good man but he needs the support of his thuggish party when he runs for president and that is why he takes a hard line on Trump.

If Booker's performance were in a movie, the movie critics would be pointing out how ridiculous it is.

Booker tried to use intimidation to scare a woman from the Trump administration.

That makes Cory Booker no better than the thugs on the streets lighting police cars on fire and looting small businesses under the false pretext of advancing racial issues.

Senatory Booker's behavior is borderline criminal.

Booker puts on a good show.

The fake self-righteous indignation.

I'm sure Schumer, Pelosi, Hillary and cheesy Dick Durbin were all very proud of Bookers acting ability.

Lets see, because the president was willing to sign a bill for the Dreamers but what is usually called compromise wants a wall to protect the southern border and the citizens that live there the Dems said no way. I take it the Dreamers aren't that important to the Dems. He didn't destroy it..... the Dems did.

Cory was not at that meeting so he should not put himself out on a limb. For the record:

https://www.realclearpolitics.com/2018/01/15/...

In 2013, Politico reported:

“In a ‘negotiation’ meeting with the president, one GOP House Leader told [President Barack Obama]:‘I cannot even stand to look at you,’” Durbin wrote in a post on his Facebook page over the weekend.

However, both the White House and the House speaker’s office denied Durbin’s account of events.

Asked about the post in the White House daily briefing, press secretary Jay Carney said he checked with a participant of the meeting in question.

“I looked into this and spoke with somebody who was in that meeting and it did not happen,” Carney said.
==========
So in a private meeting, with President Obama there, Durbin claimed that a high-ranking Republican made a racist comment about Obama. It turned out to be a fantasy.

Hypocrite, say you.......ROFL

Trump spent the past 3 years making sexist personal attacks against Carly Fiorina, Hillary Clinton, Megyn Kelly and Mika Brzezinski, and the RNC said nothing. Cory Booker calls out a Trump appointee for blatantly lying in defense of Trump's bigotry, and the RNC calls him sexist.

Not to leave out.

The GOP have now declared themselves the party of Stalin and Putin, hosting the fake news Fake News Awards on their website. Donald Stalin and all his GOP fascists need an alternate reality because the ugliness of who they are has been exposed by a free press.

There were two meeting with Obama. One was televised on Feb 10 2010 not sure if the Feb 25th meeting was on television.

Those were the opening negotiations on healthcare reform
