Cory Booker is one of the top Democrat candidates for President.
And like every candidate in the field, Booker is racing as far to the left as fast as humanly possible.
But he just tripped himself up and now all hell is breaking loose after he attacked the military in this terrible way.
Booker made his initial swing through Iowa to court voters in advance of the 2020 Iowa Caucus.
It did not go well.
Booker told the crowd that he endorsed Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s communist “Green New Deal.”
But in doing so, he insulted every veteran by comparing the fake news global warming hoax to battling the Nazis.
Friday at a campaign event in Mason City, IA, Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) compared Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Sen. Ed Markey’s (D-MA) so-called Green New Deal to fighting Nazis.
Booker said, “We have to deal with this. Our planet is in peril, and we need to be bold. It’s one of the reasons I signed on to the resolution. I co-sponsored the resolution for the Green New Deal. There’s a lot of people blowing back on the Green New Deal. They’re going, ‘Oh, it’s impractical, oh it’s too expensive, oh it’s all of this.’ If we used to govern our dreams that way, we would have never gone to the moon.”
He added, “We need to be bold again in America. We need to have dreams that other people say are impossible. We need to push the bounds of human potential. Because that is our history. When the planet has been in peril in the past, who came forward to save the earth from the scourge of Nazi and totalitarian regimes? We came forward. Who came forward to save the planet or continents from financial ruin? We came forward with the Marshall Plan.”
These comments will not hurt Booker in the primary.
Rank-and-file Democrats look down their noses at the U.S. military.
So insulting the troops’ fight against the evils of Nazism may win him votes in a Democrat primary.
The problem is, once you get out of the primary, regular Americans revere the U.S. military and don’t take kindly to politicians that put down their heroism.
