Senator Cory Booker was the star of the Senate floor on Monday as he gave a dramatic performance in oppose to the nomination and confirmation of Judge Amy Coney-Barrett to the Supreme Court.
With a closed fist and brave facial expression, he said, “Nothing about this is normal! Reading from his notes, he added, “It is not normal that Senate Republicans are rushing through a confirmation hearing, violating their own statements and betraying the trust of the American people and their colleagues, and failing to take in this hearing even the most basic safety protections for the people around them.”
He continued repeatedly saying: “The American people should decide. The American people should decide. The American people should decide.”
“I will not be voting to confirm Judge Barrett’s nomination,” he said as he ended his remarks.
Earlier in his speech, the New Jersey senator claimed the Republicans are rushing the nomination because they wanted to overturn the ObamaCare, which could hurt the American people.
The Democrats have been trying to stop the nomination and confirmation of Barrett to the Supreme Court, despite her outstanding qualifications. They claim it is unconstitutional, while in fact, nothing in the constitution that says it is illegal for a sitting president to nominate a SCOTUS in an election year.
While Democrats are rejoicing and applauding Booker’s failed theatrical acting, many conservatives slammed the lawmaker on Twitter.
My response to Cory Booker’s overheated theatrical bombast? Yawn, zzzzz, snore. Horrible acting performance!

.@CoryBooker won’t even listen to Amy Coney Barrett and has pledged to vote NO on her confirmation before even letting her speak a single word.
Booker is one of the most vile perpetrators of partisanship in Senate, he is an embarrassment to New Jersey and our nation.

I still can’t believe Cory Booker ran for President …
He is the face of a beta male.

Cory Booker is from Bergen County. Could he not afford better acting coaches?

Cry harder @CoryBooker.
She’ll be confirmed and you’ll still be irrelevant.
