Booker: ‘I have deep concern about the future of our country’


WASHINGTON — U.S. Sen. Cory Booker said Sunday that “people are so fearful” in the wake of Tuesday’s election and expressed “deep concern” about America’s future. Speaking on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Booker (D-N.J.) decried the tone of the just-concluded campaign run by President-elect Donald Trump, who received enough electoral votes to become U.S. chief executive…

    Exactly Jaaon. Booker is another one of those incompetent lightweights that liberals love to fawn over for the simple reason that he can make a nice speech. He has zero ideas on how to solve any problems, and the president that he supported for the last 8 years has been an unmitigated disaster for this country.
    This is the last gasp for clueless liberals like Booker as they watch someone who appears to be willing to do whatever it takes to get this country back on track without worrying what people think. He can get off to a great start by appointing a true conservative to the Supreme Court.

    that we won’t be rid of this one on the scene, for a long time: there is just something slightly “off” about him: I know the Dems do not lose well- witness the ” love trumps hate” crowd acting out in spoiled, evil, disgusting, illegal ways, coast to coast- but, if this guy is what they are looking at, to advance their already- rejected progressive big- government failures, we are in further trouble: my impression of him was/is a well- educated figurehead who never really gets his hands dirty and fixes any ills.. Agree Newark was another disaster with him at the helm- he could not wait to run to DC to escape the further deterioration..we need to make sure he doesn’t get to move up..

    I worked in Newark while Senator Booker used the Mayor’s office as a platform while waiting for Lautenberg to die.
    His claim to fame was the $100mil he convinced Zukerberg to donate to enhance the schools. Most of the money was squandered to fat cat lawyers and ” consultants” with no improvement in the student achievement. Another self serving politian using his minority constituents to get ahead.

  5. Hillary Clinton is a liar said at 1:40 pm on November 14th, 2016:

    Put a sock in it Booker. If you take out CA and New York CITY (not the entire state), Trump won the popular vote by over 2 million. The rest of this country isn’t buying what you’re selling!

  6. And if said at 11:37 am on November 16th, 2016:

    you don’t count the dead, illegals, and double- voters, Trump would likely have won in a popular vote landslide, besides the electoral win. There really needs to be a lot more diligence, nationwide, as to who gets the privilege of voting.. I am not talking about voter suppression,( as we always get blamed for,) it is about plain, purposeful, orchestrated fraud- and that undermines and ruins our democratic republic, and the concept of full, fair, and free elections.
