Meghan McCain Makes Cory Booker Squirm By Asking About Hillary

Justin Caruso Senior Media Reporter

Meghan McCain asked Democratic Sen. Cory Booker about Hillary Clinton’s recent comments about Trump voters on “The View” Monday, and he totally avoided the question.


“Hillary Clinton last week in India saying that she won areas that were, quote, ‘forward thinking.’ Trump won places that were backward thinking on issues like race and racism,” McCain said. “I’m from one of those states that she’s talking about. And I just want to know from you, going forward in 2020, do you think this is an appropriate way for Democrats to speak about Republicans?”

“We in this country–first of all, the election is over and is past, so I know that Donald Trump in every other sentence is talking about Obama and Secretary Clinton,” Booker said. “The reality is we have to in this coming ‘18 election–forget 2020–focus on right now, we have to begin to see each other for the truth of who we are. This idea of tolerance in America, that we’re just going to stomach each other right to be different–that is such a cynical state.” (RELATED: Meghan McCain Asks Adam Schiff To Back Up His Collusion Claims.

“Patriotism is love of country. Love of country demands that we will love each other. We don’t always have to agree or like each other, but love says I see your worth, I see your value. I understand that my definition of worth is the same as yours.”

“And so while Donald Trump seems to be intent on separating, dividing, demeaning, degrading, I want Republicans and Democrats to start a new national narrative about how we need each other.” (RELATED: ‘Inside-The-Beltway Porn’ — Meghan McCain Gives The View A Brutal Reality Check On Trump’s Popularity)
