Democratic Senator Cory Booker is not known for his emotional stability, but at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing earlier this week, he had a meltdown while lecturing Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen over her testimony.
According to Breitbart, this is what he said:
“I’ve been in the Oval Office many times and when the president speaks, I listen. I haven’t forgotten the conversations I had there going back months and months. I had individual meetings with the president, as well as group conversations where there was – cross-talk. And why is this so important?
Why is this so disturbing for me and I am seething with anger?
The president in an Oval Office meeting referring to people from African countries and Haitians with the most vile language which festers when ignorance and bigotry is aligned with power. That is one dangerous force to have in our country. Your silence and amnesia is complicity. At this moment, there is a problem in our nation.
I hurt when Durbin called me. I had tears of rage when I heard about this experience. For you not to feel that hurt and to dismiss some of the questions of my colleagues saying, ‘I’ve already given answers to that line of questions,’ when millions of American citizens are hurting because of what they’re worried about what happened in the White House, I cannot accept that.”
Dear senator, grow up!
As a United States Senator, younare expected to act like one. In order to be professional, you can’t become emotional because you heard something that you do not agree with.
While we are at it, I think that Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was clear when she said to you she does not remember. She’s under oath, so obviously, she does not remember.
I’d be a little suspect about what Senator “Dicky” Durbin tells me in the future if I were you. I would take that with a grain of salt.
