Cory Booker Takes Down Meghan McCain Who Tried To Spread Her Right-Wing Falsehoods On Live TV
Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) appeared on “The View” on Friday where he shamed right-wing conservative host Meghan McCain for trying to belittle him with the “Spartacus” nickname that remains popular in conservative media.
Booker appeared on the show just hours after announcing his presidential run where McCain tried to claim that the Kavanaugh hearing overshadowed his congressional record.
“I hear what you’re saying, and it sounds great,” McCain said. “I understand what you’re saying about your record, but I do think there’s something to be said, when I think of you now, I think of, ‘I am Spartacus,’ and that I don’t know is the best reflection of you.”
“I hope you go back and watch the whole clip, because even that was twisted,” Booker said. “What we do in this culture right now, it’s a tear-down culture. The truth doesn’t really even matter. I hope you’ll go back and watch the Kavanaugh hearings — that was one of my prouder moments, sticking up for people.”
“I was threatened to be thrown out of the Senate, I told the senator that did that, ‘Bring it,’ and another senator stood up and said, ‘If you’re going to throw Cory Booker out, throw me into the pit, as well.’ That senator, I looked at them and said, ‘Wow, that’s like an I am Spartacus moment — he stepped forward to (say) if anything happens to Cory (it) happens to me.’”
Then Booker shamed McCain for her cheap shots.
“The problem with our culture, these snippets, we have people getting more and more ratings by tearing down other people,” he said. “If you’re tired of that bitterness, that trash talking, that trolling, that politics that is a race to the bottom in our country, then don’t support me, because I’m not in this race to tear people down. I’m in this race try to build our nation up.”
