Channeling black America. The frustration that Senator Cory Booker expressed at Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, for failing to remember Trump’s “sh**hole countries” comment, represents the discomfort of black people who see a rise in bigotry across the country, writes Eugene Scott of The Washington Post. Her claiming to not have heard the remark was unbelievable to Booker, who saw it as complicity in the president’s racially insensitive behavior. Black Americans and communities from the insulted countries feel that Trump mostly represents white people, not them; a reality that Booker sough to articulate.
Liberal-approved mansplaining. Senator Cory Booker’s outburst was overly emotional, quite partisan and incredibly out of place, believes David French of National Review. Making flawed arguments, insulting and chauvinistically heckling Nielsen, this conduct was simply inappropriate. It also revealed the hypocrisy of liberals, who celebrated his rant. Had the tables been turned, and had a Republican man attacked a Democrat woman so viciously, loud calls of sexism would have rung throughout the internet. Booker’s raving is representative of the spiteful narrative that the left has adopted to hypocritically undermine and attack conservatives.
