White House hopeful Cory Booker told late-night talk show host Seth Meyers on Monday night that his “testosterone sometimes makes me want” to punch “elderly, out-of-shape” President Trump.
“Donald Trump is a guy who you understand he hurts you, and my testosterone sometimes makes me want to feel like punching him, which would be bad for this elderly, out-of-shape man that he is if I did that — this physically weak specimen,” Booker said.
Had a Republican senator expressed such a violent urge on national TV toward former President Barack Obama, the left-leaning outrage media would pounce on it as evidence the right-wing is violent and Democrats would demand that the bully leave office. Instead, left-wing propagandist Meyers and his audience laughed and cheered, and Booker pretended to be the better man:
“What we need from our next leader, especially after the time of moral vandalism that we’re in right now, is we need a leader that’s not going to call us to the worst of who we are, but call us to the best of who we are.”
