    Sen. Cory Booker found himself compared to actor Tommy Wiseau of “The Room” on Tuesday after raising his voice during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing. An angry exchange with Homeland Security Secretary Kristjen Nielsen became one of the top tending stories on Twitter this week when Mr. Booker recounted “tears of rage” over comments attributed to Mr. Trump. The New Jersey Democrat scolded Ms. Nielsen for “amnesia” when she testified under oath that she never heard the president refer to “sh—hole” countries during policy negotiations. “When [Illinois senator] Dick Durbin called me, I had tears of rage when I heard...

    Democratic Sen. Cory Booker seethed with anger over Trump’s alleged “shithole countries” comment during a hearing with Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen. During a hearing in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Nielsen faced numerous questions about Trump’s alleged insistence that countries like Haiti and African countries are “shithole countries.” “I hurt,” Booker cried. “When Dick Durbin called me I had tears of rage when I heard about this experience in this meeting.” “For you not to feel that hurt and that pain and to dismiss some of the questions of my colleagues saying, ‘I’ve already answered that line of...

    Now testifies against his nomination as attorney general implying Sessions is a racist We’ve long heard about the collegial nature of the Senate. If you’re a senator, you treat your colleagues with respect and decorum unless your name is Harry Reid, and you give particular deference to colleagues who are nominated for cabinet positions. That doesn’t mean you automatically vote to confirm them, but you certain afford them a great deal of respect.

    NEWARK — It was a “kumbaya” moment for Newark Mayor Cory Booker and Gov. Chris Christie, but one that will have a lasting impression in Newark. Despite being on opposing sides during Booker’s victorious U.S. Senate run against Republican Steve Lonegan, the two men once again touted their bipartisan alliance Thursday with the groundbreaking of the Springfield Avenue Marketplace, a $94 million retail and housing complex that includes a 66,000 square-foot ShopRite supermarket along one of Newark’s most troubled corridors. “This is not because of a mayor. It really is because of great leadership on many different fronts,” Booker said,...

    The crazy corrupt corporation known as Newark Watershed Conservation Development Corporation (NWC) picks up about $10 MILLION a year from taxpayers to run a shadow government that allegedly funnels largess into the pockets of pals of US Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ). But true to form, New England media lefties zip their lips while pulling “SEND” off of their keyboards. And did we expect anything else? Reformers like Jeff Tittel of the Sierra Club calls the NWC the “Newark Watershed Development & Corruption Corp.” Supposedly set up to run land holdings around northwest New Jersey reservoirs, Tittel says, “the NWCDC was...

    While you try to wrap your mind around that self-absorbed bit of self-serving political theater, take a break and enjoy the clip above where Cory Booker actually begins to muse nostalgically about first getting his driver’s license as a teen in New Jersey. His eyes turn misty as he remembers the “only trip” he ever took was to drive to Hawaii, and it was a beautiful – wait, what?!

    Newark, April 10–New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker (D) may be headed for a more difficult reelection campaign this fall than many political professionals seem to think. The reason: the mainstream press, which has been his biggest booster, is now beginning to question not only his veracity but his competence as Newark mayor, which recently took a hit from a report issued by the state comptroller. When he announced his intention to seek a Senate seat, Booker was considered a shoo-in. But the Senate campaign turned out to be no coronation. Although polls in early August had Booker with a 35-point...

    The Associated Press has declared Newark Mayor Cory Booker the winner in Wednesday's special U.S. Senate election. Booker defeated former Bogota Mayor Steve Lonegan, a Tea Party Republican, to serve out the remainder of the late Frank Lautenberg’s term. Although the race was close early on, Democrats were quick to declare Booker the winner. Only 40 minutes after polls closed at 8 p.m., the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee was declaring victory. A short time later, state Sen. Barbara Buono, who is running against Governor Christie in the Nov. 5 election, offered her congratulations to Booker.

  • Neighbors: Cory Booker never lived in Newark

    As Cory Booker looks set to win the junior Senate seat in New Jersey Wednesday, his supposed neighbors in Newark say Mayor Booker doesn’t live in the Gateway City. Multiple residents of Newark told The Daily Caller that the longtime mayor doesn’t live at any of the addresses he has claimed as home. The mayor is believed to live in New York even though he is registered to run for New Jersey’s special senate election. Booker, who filed to run for the U.S. Senate from a B.O. Box in Newark, is registered to vote at 435 Hawthorne Avenue but his...

    This week, I published a profile of Booker,  who is likely to be the next junior senator from New Jersey, after sitting down with the Newark mayor for a long interview in a Union, New Jersey  diner. Yesterday, while I was out reporting a story about how Maine’s governor hates words,  the National Review suggested that Booker likes them a little too much. It depicted Booker as a fabulist and accused him of inventing a drug dealer named T-Bone, who served as a fixture in his early political stump speeches.This is an old complaint, first lodged by the Newark Star Ledger,...

    The list of keynote commencement speakers at Ivy League institutions for 2013 does not include a single conservative, a recent study authored by the conservative Young America’s Foundation (YAF) found. Instead seven of the elite schools opted to invite ideological liberal speakers such as media billionaire Oprah Winfrey, Vice President Joe Biden (D), Newark Mayor Cory Booker (D), Mayor Michael Bloomberg (I), among others. Only Brown University, which chooses a commencement keynote from among its students, did not have a 2013 speaker who is generally associated with the left. YAF spokesman Adam Tragone told Campus Reform on Tuesday the list...

    Newark, N.J. Mayor Cory Booker says the federal government’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (food stamps), which spent $80.4 billion in fiscal 2012, is “not a government handout.” “I hope and understand that people are getting a better recognition that this is a program that really helps America, helps families in need,” Booker said on Friday, while describing his fourth day of living on a SNAP budget. "It’s not a government handout,” he said. “If anything, it’s a safety net that helps people through difficult times and bridges them towards stability.” …

    It’s bye-bye, Beltway for Cory Booker. Newark’s mayor, who was gunning for a spot in President Obama’s Cabinet, lost the chance after he shot his mouth off during a blunderingly honest TV appearance last month, sources told The Post. “He’s dead to us,” one ranking administration official said of the prevailing feelings at the White House and Obama headquarters in Chicago. Booker had been angling for the housing secretary gig in a second Obama term, according to sources in the administration and close to the mayor. The job was certainly a possibility, given Booker’s work in New Jersey’s biggest city,...
