Cory Booker is not the brightest person. It should be obvious when you’re running for president, that you shouldn’t bash the United States Constitution or America’s founders but that’s what he just did.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Booker: Founders Wrote ‘Bigotries’ Into the Constitution
Democratic presidential candidate Cory Booker said the Founding Fathers wrote “bigotries” into the United States Constitution.
Speaking to NPR’s Morning Edition, Booker called for “creating consensus,” by leveling criticism at America’s founding.
“The founders were imperfect geniuses,” Booker said. “They wrote a lot of our bigotries into [the Constitution].”
“If you think about how we have overcome those things, it’s always been by creating, first, calls to consciousness, speaking truth about the injustices, and then bringing together those uncommon coalitions,” he said.
“We are a nation of conscience, and I found partners on the other side of the aisle who agree with me on these issues,” Booker said. “And we can build from there.”
It is unclear what “bigotries” Booker is specifically referencing. Request for comment was not immediately returned.
Several of Booker’s fellow Democratic candidates for president, including Sens. Elizabeth Warren (Mass.) and Kamala Harris (Calif.), have come out in support of reparations, once a fringe position held on the far left. Booker has yet to take a position on paying reparations for slavery.
Booker is currently campaigning on the issue of legalizing Marijuana throughout the country. Maybe he’s been smoking it, too.
Cory Booker using his new legal weed and criminal justice plans to raise cash for his presidential campaign
A day after U.S. Sen. Cory Booker introduced comprehensive legislation to further overhaul the criminal justice system, the 2020 Democratic presidential candidate delivered a message to supporters.
“The scales of justice in America haven’t ever been balanced, but if we can come together to pass this legislation, we can finally restore justice to our justice system,” Booker, D-N.J., wrote on Friday. “That is what it means to dream big. Raise your hand to say you support my plan — and let’s raise our voices together.”
The preceding week, Booker sent out a fundraising email on the same day he reintroduced legislation ending the federal ban on marijuana.
“These laws fracture communities, destroy families, and make us all less safe — it’s time we fix this broken system,” this email read. “I need your voice with mine on this — sign on today and join the call to pass the Marijuana Justice Act.”
In introducing such high-profile bills, Booker has been signaling his legislative priorities — and his need for money to run for president.
Marijuana justice? Really?
