Corey Booker explodes into ‘tears of rage’ rant at Senate Hearing over Trump’s reported ‘sh*thole’ remark

Senator Corey Booker exploded into a rant on Trump’s reported “sh*thole” comment at a Senate hearing on Tuesday.

The New Jersey Senator stated that he had “tears of rage” after the alleged remark.

“I hurt. When Dick Durbin called me, I had tears of rage when I heard about his experience in that meeting,” Booker said. “And for you not to feel that hurt, and that pain, and to dismiss the questions of some of my colleagues, saying I’ve already answered that line of questions, when tens of millions of Americans are hurting right now because of what they’re worried about what happened in the White House. That’s unacceptable to me.”

Booker was just warming up, condemning Department of Homeland Security secretary Nielsen of being “complicit” with her statement she never heard President Trump make the reputed “sh*thole” comment.

“The commander in chief, in an Oval Office meeting, referring to people from African countries and Haitians with the most vile and vulgar language — that language festers,” Booker continued. “When ignorance and bigotry is allied with power, it is a dangerous force in our country. Your silence and your amnesia is complicity.”

“I receive enough death threats to know the reality,” Booker also said. “And I’ve got a president of the United States, an office I respect, who talks about the country’s origins, my fellow citizens, in the most despicable manner. You don’t remember. You can’t remember the words of your commander in chief. I find that unacceptable.”

Strikingly, DHS Sec. Nielsen agreed with Booker’s sentiments.

“I couldn’t agree with you more than the Department of Homeland Security has a duty to stop and prevent violence in all of its forms,” she said. “I share your passion. It’s unacceptable. It can’t be tolerated in the United States.”
