In the midst of this impeachment inquiry talk, it is easy to forget that other 2020 presidential candidates are still trying to latch on to whatever media coverage they can get. It seems that Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey has decided that the latest "evidence" against the president shows him that his supporters who "enable" him are despicable. Booker's comments were made to MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell on Tuesday night after Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi announced a formal impeachment inquiry.
"I just want to say I've seen this. I've been saying this from the beginning of the Trump administration. Those people who are enabling him, who assuaged their conscious, witness the kind of things he does on a regular basis, and we've heard the reports I've heard the reporting, the kind of things this person does to, moral vandalism of that office, those people that are enabling him -- there is a cold frigid place under the historical eye. They will go down in history as despicable actors who have enabled one of the presidents who's doing some of the worst things to that office in the entire history of our country," Booker declared.
"The truth comes out. The truth about Donald Trump will come out. That is why we will defeat him in 2020 if he is still there. But these people...I have a very low regard for people who know he's doing wrong but still enable him, defend him, and in many ways empower him to remain in that office," the bottom tier presidential candidate continued.
This sort of rhetoric from the Left really is not surprising anymore. Democrats think that Trump supporters, those in his administration, and even those who simply believe the guy isn't all that bad are akin to racists, neo-Nazis, and some of the worst dregs of society to ever walk the planet. Democrats like Cory Booker may claim to want unity, but then take every chance they get to demonize Republicans. It's pathetic.
