Cory “Spartacus” Booker Drops Out of the 2020 Race
New Jersey Senator Cory Booker, a man who alleged to cry “tears of rage” when President Trump might have called some countries “s–tholes”, is no longer in the running for 2020.
To be fair, we’ve all seen this coming for a while now. Despite Booker’s entertaining antics, which usually amounted to him pretending to be emotional about something, he’s basically been running for a cabinet position (or perhaps a VP pick) for months now. Even during the earlier days of the election season, he’s been very hard to take seriously.
There are a lot of things to take from this. For one, the DNC and its media acolytes are clearly pushing Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren to the top — giving each of them all of the favorable coverage they could possible ask for. This isn’t to suggest that they had a problem with Booker, but their agenda is making sure a Democrat wins in 2020. That just wasn’t possible with the New Jersey senator.
Booker has, among other things, come off as blatantly inauthentic. And when things started to look tough after Kamala Harris dropped out, he pivoted to focusing on identity politics exclusively. The “I’m the only black person running” routine is getting old, and let’s face it — the powers that be are likely betting on the idea that a Democrat will nix the minority vote regardless.
