Kellyanne: If Cory Booker Was Republican, His Campaign Would Be Called Sexist

Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ), as you know, was the latest Democrat to announce he's running for president in 2020. In his Friday launch video, entitled, "We Will Rise," the senator told his supporters that "the only way we can make change is when people come together." It is full of other declarations like, "In America, courage is contagious."

To some Booker may seem inspirational. To others, he's a source of ridicule. Consider his behavior at then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation hearings in September. At one point, Booker was so proud of his questioning that he called himself "Spartacus."

White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway had a few takeaways from Booker's presidential ambitions and personality in general. One, that Booker sounds more like a Hallmark card than a serious contender.

And two, that if Booker was a Republican, his campaign would immediately be labeled "sexist." She explained why in a recent interview with "Fox & Friends." The Democrats already had a handful of women running against President Trump in 2020, so why doesn't Booker step aside and support their campaigns instead?

“What’s wrong with the candidates that are already in there?" Conway asked. "What is your objection to Kamala Harris running, Elizabeth Warren, Kirsten Gillibrand, these others who have already announced, Tulsi Gabbard, maybe?”

She concluded: “If he were a Republican running against them, they would immediately call him a sexist for running against these women in the Democratic field.”
