The circus has come to town in 2019, or, more accurately, the circus has come to the entirety of the United States in the form of a bloviated field of democratic candidates vying for the White House.
The massive conglomerate of progressive politicos have been struggling to distance themselves from one another over the course of the last few months, with only one candidate, Eric Swalwell having the cognizance to bow out due to his abysmal polling.
The rest of this cacophony of liberalism are still out there, baring their teeth, and attempting to delegitimize those with whom they agree with a vast majority of the time in which they’ve worked together in Congress or other branches of the governmental tree. Democratic socialist Bernie says Biden is too mainstream. Biden has butted heads with former prosecutor Kamala Harris over prison reform. Beto O’Rourke keeps dropping F-bombs in order to maintain his youthful visage.
In other words, it’s a mess.
Now, to add to the desperation already palpable in the air today, Cory Booker is insinuating that he, at times, has felt the urge to commit bodily harm unto the leader of the free world.
Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) told Seth Meyers on Monday night, “My testosterone sometimes makes me want” to punch the “elderly out-of-shape” Trump.
“Donald Trump is a guy who you understand he hurts you, and my testosterone sometimes makes me want to feel like punching him, which would be bad for this elderly out-of-shape man that he is if I did that — this physically weak specimen,” Booker said to hoots and hollers from the trained seal audience.
Booker is far from the first democrat to intimate his desire to throw hands at the President, with Joe Biden and Trump having both publicly fantasized about a “out behind the woodshed” sort of brawl between the two septuagenarians.
Real Clear Politics shows Booker polling below the 2% mark nationally, making him largely a non-factor in the 2020 race.
