Cory Booker Puts on Theatrical Performance During Ketanji Brown Jackson SCOTUS Nomination, Calls Her His “Harbinger of Hope”


Cory Booker apparently thought that the latest SCOTUS confirmation hearing was a chance to show the world his acting skills.

In what can only be described as the most cringe moment of 2022 (the year is young), Booker spent several minutes fawning over Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson.

As can always be expected from democrats like Booker, he based his entire speech on race.

Booker broke into tears as he compared Jackson to his hero Harriet Tubman.

At one point, Booker stared at Jackson and said:

“Today, you are my star. You are my harbinger of hope.”

Cory Booker and his colleagues are bad at almost everything they do.

The one thing they are good at is fooling stupid people with their b-minus acting skills.

Naturally, democrats and media members fell hook, line, and sinker for Booker’s schtick.

Dems on Twitter went on about how they had tears in their eyes as they watched Booker speak.

The media is simply gushing about this right now:

In moving remarks, Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., said he was emotional at the nomination of Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson, and expressed frustration with the tone of the questions some of his GOP colleagues asked on the third day of Jackson’s confirmation hearing.

Booker said on Wednesday during the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing that Jackson — who would be the first Black woman on the Supreme Court — is an extraordinary testament of what can be accomplished against the odds.

“I want to tell you when I look at you, this is why I get emotional,” said Booker, the only Black member of the Senate committee and one of only three Black senators. “I’m sorry — you’re a person that is so much more than your race and gender.”

Everyone else saw this for exactly what it was, a political performance with a touch of theatre:
