Kellyanne Conway, the counselor to President Donald Trump, says if Democrat Senator Cory Booker were a Republican, he’d be viciously attacked as a “sexist” for choosing to run for president instead of supporting one of his female colleagues.
Obviously, Booker is running because he thinks he’s a better candidate than all the women from his party who are running.
Why Won’t Cory Booker Support His Female Peers?
“Welcome [to the race],” Conway told Fox & Friends. “He’s welcome to dive in ― along with 10, 15, 30 other Democratic candidates.”
When asked her reaction to Booker’s candidacy, Conway replied:
“I would ask him a couple questions today as he runs from my native New Jersey. One is: What’s wrong with the candidates that are already in there?
What is your objection to Kamala Harris running, Elizabeth Warren, Kirsten Gillibrand, these others who have already announced, Tulsi Gabbard, maybe?
If he were a Republican running against them, they would immediately call him a sexist for running against these women in the Democratic field.”
Conway: What Has Booker Accomplished?
Aside from his sexism, Kellyanne Conway says Cory Booker is not qualified to run for president.
Before becoming a US senator, Booker was the mayor of Newark, New Jersey from 2006 to 2013. During that time, crime in Newark soared and poverty remained a major problem in the embattled city.
“I would also ask him what exactly have you accomplished that qualifies you to be commander-in-chief and president of the United States?” Conway said.
Kellyanne also noted that Booker’s side gig as a “motivational speaker” is a disaster. She said even Democrat David Axelrod ― the former chief strategist for Barack Obama ― dissed Booker’s underwhelming “motivational-speaking” skills.
“I think people should go and look at his record in Newark, New Jersey.
Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook, about 8 or 9 years ago, gave $200 million in matching funds to Newark for its school system and a whole bunch of that ― millions and millions of dollars ― went to politically-connected consulting firms.
I first came upon Cory Booker many years ago when he was a pro-school choice advocate. But the modern Democrat party…has moved so far to the left that he can’t even bring himself to continue to help these schoolchildren.”
Trump: ‘Spartacus’ Ran Newark Into the Ground
Meanwhile, check out President Trump’s brutal takedown of Booker after he tried to hijack the Senate Judiciary hearings in September 2018 by comically declaring “I Am Spartacus!”
“How about Cory Booker? Did you watch the performance?” Trump asked. “He ran Newark, New Jersey, into the ground and now he wants to be president? What was the moment he said he had? [‘Spartacus!’] I don’t think so. We’ll take Kirk Douglas at his prime. Booker ran Newark into the ground.”
While Booker condemned Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh over uncorroborated, decades-old groping allegations, he admitted that he groped a girl’s breast in high school without her consent.
