- 8.4K Views
On Monday, Senator Cory Booker gave a dramatic performance on the floor of the senate as he opposed the nomination and confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court.
“Nothing about this is normal,” Booker said with dramatic flare. “It is not normal that Senate Republicans are rushing through a confirmation hearing, violating their own statements and betraying the trust of the American people and their colleagues, and failing to take in this hearing even the most basic safety protections for the people around them.”
“The American people should decide. The American people should decide. The American people should decide,” Booker said before stating that he would not vote to support Barrett’s confirmation.
(Did he forget that the American people DID decide in 2016 and 2018 when they selected our President and Senate Majority?)
Watch his emotional rant below:
Many twitter users took notice of his horrendous acting:
Later during his acting performance, Booker also melted down because he'd rather be "helping with COVID" relief....even though Democrats have repeatedly struck down a clean bill to give the American people help:
In America today, people are scared. ... Many Americans have died, isolated and — and alone, tens of millions of jobs have been lost. One in three American families with children are not getting enough food to eat. More than 100,000 small businesses have closed permanently. Lines of food banks in the wealthiest nations on the planet have stretched for miles. We should be working in a bipartisan way to try and get the virus under control, to get relief for people who are hurting, struggling, and afraid, to help people who are unemployed, to let doctors and nurses and hospital staff putting their lives on the line right now in state after state when Covid is rising know that we have their back on the pandemic. Instead of doing anything to help people who are struggling right now, we are here.
