BOOKER GOES NUCLEAR: Cory Compares DHS Secretary to NAZIS, Trump to HITLER

21 January, 2018, 00:38 | Author: Kristen Ingram
  • Cory Booker and New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand- want to play hardball refusing to vote for anything that doesn't secure the fate of those who gained legal status under former President Barack Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program

Booker chastising DHS chief creates twitterstorm With the "s***hole" scandal dominating Washington, social media has erupted over DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen's comments during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing spurred by the alleged racist comments by President Trump.

Sen. Cory Booker, a New Jersey Democrat eyeing a presidential run against Mr. Trump, declared himself enraged at her answer, and later accused her of lying to Congress.

"I will just say for the record, Senator Graham spoke up in a way that I respect very much, countering what the President had said about countries in Africa", Durbin said.

"I don't dispute that the President was using tough language; others in the room were also using tough language", Nielsen said.

The White House has not substantively disputed accounts of the episode, in which Trump is said to have used the term "shithole" to describe African countries of origin for potential immigrants to the U.S. The revelations, semi-denials and continuing comments have cast a pall over the White House's legislative agenda, brought the country closer to the brink of a government shutdown and sparked worldwide outrage.

"The commander-in-chief, in an Oval Office meeting, referred to people from African countries and Haitians with the most vile and vulgar language", Booker said, raising his voice at Nielsen. Funding for the border wall and proposed solutions for the 11 million immigrants in the USA illegally were also discussed during the hearing.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina, said he wanted to talk about "two Trumps: the Tuesday Trump and the Thursday Trump" of last week.

During the hearing, Durbin grilled Nielsen on what transpired at the immigration meeting.

"I don't know where that guy went", he said. "Well, we know what happened in Europe when people just did their jobs".

Graham said that Trump of last Tuesday was someone he was "proud to golf with, call my friend" and who understood immigration reform had to be bipartisan. Those of us who stand by and do nothing are complicit in that ignorance'.

Because the President of the United States gives his opponents insulting nicknames, everyone gets to do it now?
