Cory Booker Asks Idiotic Questions of District Court Nominee


Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) embarrassed himself while questioning D.C. Circuit Circuit Court of Appeals nominee Neomi Rao during her confirmation hearing.

Booker asked, “Have you ever had any LGBTQ law clerks?”

Rao responded, “Senator, I’ve yet to be a judge. I don’t have law clerks.”

Her next answer was terrific when Booker asked about LGBTs on her current staff.

“To be honest I don’t know the sexual orientation of my staff. I take people as they come irrespective of their race, ethnicity, sexual orientation. I treat people as individuals. Those are the values I grew up with and those are the values I would apply if confirmed,” she said.

“I treat people as individuals”.

Why is this numbskull asking about her employees’ personal lives? Who cares as long as they can do the job?


He asked her if she thought “gay relationships are immoral.” Her answer was, “I do not.”

Then he wanted to know if she thought it was a sin. She said she puts her religious views aside for her position. This is the rest of the ridiculous dialogue:

“So you’re not willing to say whether you believe it is sinful for a man — for two men — to be married?” the senator pressed once again.

“No,” Rao responded.

“Excuse me?” Booker said.

“My response is that these personal views are ones that I would put to one side. Whatever my personal views are on the subject, I would faithfully follow the precedent of the Supreme Court,” the nominee said.

Senator Cruz blasted him for it:

“We’ve seen a growing pattern among Senate Democrats of hostility to religious faith. I have to say I was deeply troubled a few minutes ago to hear questioning of a nominee, asking your personal views on what is sinful,” he said.

“In my view that has no business in this committee. Article Six of the Constitution says there should be no religious test for any public office.”

Booker is just seeing if he can get lucky with some of the male staff if she is confirmed. Funny nothing has come from the allegations of Spartacus trying to force a guy to give him a blow job in the men’s room.

Someone said it best, a vacuous gasbag on the Democrat party 2020 clown car.

Cory Booker has two defective brain cells that keep banging into each other and confusing him just when he’s trying to impress the public with his intelligence. There are several other Democrat politicians with similar defective brain cells, but they somehow managed to become elected officials with presidential ambitions. How can we make them go away forever? That’s more difficult than trying to rid a building of cockroaches, especially when they have the Deep State and it’s drug cartels supporting them. Please, please, please, President Trump and Q team, send them to Gitmo.

Until Cory puts his own homosexuality on the public record, his asking others about their beliefs and actions falls on deaf ears. Isn’t that true, Cory?

Cory Booker has been a mental midget and class clown for most of his adult life, why is this even remarkable? You cannot fix this much stupid in one person and it would take a life time to make Booker look or act like an intelligent human being.
