  1. Cory Booker wears his ass for a hat.

  2. to all the negative comments; you should learn how listen and comprehend what the man is actually saying before making false accusations. he is anti-racist and wants to actively stand up against racism.

  3. And yet, all of the Newark residents have lead in their water. Good job Corky!

    2020 Democratic candidate Cory Booker is making the environment one of the central pillars of his campaign. But when he was the mayor of Newark, New Jersey, he was at the center of a water scandal that is coming back to haunt him.

    ABC News reports:

    For Cory Booker, water crisis awakens ghosts of past Newark water scandal
    As a presidential candidate, Cory Booker has made environmental

    protections a central tenet of his social justice platform. As a United
    States senator, he emerged as a leading voice on the front lines of safe
    water for urban-dwellers.

    But a growing water quality crisis gripping Newark, New Jersey,
    is bringing fresh attention and scrutiny of Booker’s own record when he
    was that city’s mayor — at a time when the water system was marred by
    scandal.

    The two crises may be separated by time, but as images spread of
    Newark officials handing out bottled water to residents grappling with
    dangerous water pollution, ongoing water problems could prove
    increasingly uncomfortable for his 2020 presidential campaign.

    “This is something that he will have to answer for,” said Krista
    Jenkins, a professor of political science at Fairleigh Dickinson
    University. “As with anyone who is a chief executive of a large city,
    everything that happened under his or her watch is going to become
    fodder for any of his or her rivals.”

    This could be a big problem for his campaign, which is already struggling.

    Former mayor Cory Booker shares in blame for Newark, NJ’s water crisis, critics say: ‘He left a mess’

    As thousands of residents of New Jersey’s largest city are
    provided with bottled water amid a contamination crisis, its former
    mayor – Democratic presidential contender, Sen. Cory Booker – is facing
    renewed backlash from critics who claim he mismanaged the city’s water
    commission during his time at City Hall.

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency urged local officials
    last Saturday to administer free water bottles to Newark residents after
    nationally certified filters in two of three homes tested showed they
    were not removing lead from drinking water.

    Officials handed out 38,000 filters last year to Newark residents
    who were potentially at risk of having contaminated drinking water due
    to outdated lead piping in the city’s water system…

    “Booker has no credibility, especially on water,” Brendan
    O’Flaherty, an economics professor at Columbia University who put
    together a 2011 report on the commission, told the Washington Times. “He
    did not leave a legacy of a well-functioning water treatment plant and
    engineering corps. He left a mess,” O’Flaherty said.

    Will he be asked about this in the next debate?

  6. Once again, a Democrat puts words in Trump's mouth. Never ONCE did he ever say, or even IMPLY, that he favors "one race" or "one religion". These people are such liars it's pathetic. You can almost smell the fear and desperation coming off of them, they're so terrified of the thought of Trump winning again in 2020. They'll do anything, say anything, and make up whatever "crimes" they need to in the hope of preventing it, but in the end, it will avail them nothing. It's easy for them to act like they're a bunch of "giant slayers" amongst themselves, but when they actually face Trump on the debate floor, it's gonna be shark and guppy time. Hes gonna eat them alive.

  7. He is so full of shit. What a joke!

  8. Cary and Carolyn met in Washington, DC, where they were both working for IBM. They were among the first African American executives in the company. In 1969, when Cory was a baby, the couple moved to New Jersey in 1969 and started a family. They settled down in Harrington Park, New Jersey, which has been described as a wealthy and mostly white suburb near Newark. Cary later said was a “cheap” and affordable neighborhood at that time. After Cory was born, both of his parents remained with IBM; Cary got promoted to the New York office and Carolyn got a job in White Plains, N.Y.

    It wasn’t easy for the Bookers to buy a home in the predominately white suburb of Harrington Park.

  9. America is one big Gangland folks their not telling you! Give up your guns you will be a kid in a candy store to them.

  10. You really are CRAZY! I don't believe this Bullshit! Yet nobody talks about all the killings in Chicago and so on..Get rid of the Gangland!When you listen to these yoyos do research on all the gangs in this country…

  11. Let’s take guns from the people and just let the cops and criminals shoot everyone? I’m more afraid of cops than klansmen!

  12. booker its morons like you that cause all this hate and your dem party maybe if you all worked together with the greatest president of all time things might get done and you may not have all this hate and killing going on. You do nothing but lie and say the most stupidest thing face the fact you will never be president

  13. when the Booger talk about moral LOL

  14. Because speeches like this Supremacist rise more and more. Enough of BS.

  15. Booker I believe is a congressman, he can bring it up in the congress and then the Democrats can write a bill to ban it including the communist party and the Nazi party. this is if they really mean what they say, congress has a majority. its simple.

  16. What about black supremacist, the black panthers group is nothing more than a black supremacist terrorist organization. The Democratic clowns need to focus on this group as well as the KKK.

  17. Has h*** ever frozen over before?

  18. cory bye bye zionist stooge.

  19. This dope has no clue what "accountability" means. It means that the shooters should be held accountable, not his political opponents. Cory is either naive that he thinks he can force terrorists to change or he is just evil and knows he can't as he is just the lead parasite in a ruse to take control of the country for his own benefit by saying what he thinks voters want to hear and he can't deliver.

  20. Thank Cory Booker for the Active shooting going on in PHIL.PA.RIGHT NOW!!! His constant trashing of LAW ENFORCEMENT gives these PSYCHO'S The Push to SHOOT COPS!!ADD ABC,CNN,MSNBC and all of the CRAZY "Guests" they put on to TRASH OUR LAW ENFORCEMENT!!!
