Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) fancies himself as the next Barack Obama and hopes to become president of the United States, but he can’t even answer basic moral questions without turning into a coward.
In a video of a press conference, Booker was asked by a reporter about the anti-semitic, anti-Israel statements by made Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MI). Visibly nervous, Booker quickly asked, “Can we do off-topic questions when we finish?” Talk about a career-ending refusal.
Conservative reporter Liz Wheeler with One America News Network retweeted the video and said, “Dear Lord, how hard is it for Cory Booker to just say ‘Ilhan Omar’s comments were anti-Semitic & hateful & I condemn them’??”
In recent days, Congresswoman Omar has let out a string of controversial comments aimed at Israel. “It’s all about the Benjamins baby,” she tweeted, making the accusation that the relationship between The U.S. and Israel is about money.
Omar believes that “Israel has hypnotized the world” and has decried what she calls “political influence in this country that says it’s OK for people to push for allegiance for a foreign country,” once again referring to Israel.
