Booker: GOP Questioning of KBJ ‘Triggered a Hurt in So Many’

Booker: GOP Questioning of KBJ ‘Triggered a Hurt in So Many’

April 6, 2022

Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) claimed that Republicans “triggered a hurt in so many people” with how they questioned Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson during her confirmation hearings.

“I am hearing from people, not just Black women, who are relating to me their stories about having to come into a room where you’re more qualified than the people who are sitting in judgement of you and having to endure the absurdities of disrespect that we saw Judge Jackson endure,” he said.

Republicans showed KBJ no personal disrespect; Booker and his fellow Democrats simply equate tough questions with “disrespect.”

“How could they disrespect a person like [KBJ] who’s done everything right in her life and in her journey?” Booker whined.

In his typically grandstanding, pontificating style, Booker went on to cite Maya Angelou’s famous poem And Still I Rise: “You may write me down in history. With your bitter, twisted lies, you may trod me in the very dirt. But still, like dust, I’ll rise.”

Insert eye-roll here.

You may recall that during the confirmation hearings, Booker literally cried about GOP leaders questioning Jackson about her record of soft-sentencing for sex offenders and child pornographers. You may also recall that Booker grandstanded about Trump nominee Brett Kavanaugh, whom the left smeared as a sexual predator and tried to destroy his life during his confirmation hearings. And yet Booker has the nerve to rail against the purported “disrespect” shown to his Party’s nominee.
