Fox News contributor Lisa Boothe took a swing at Democratic Sen. Cory Booker for his self-described “Spartacus” moment last week during Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s hearings on “The Story With Martha MacCallum” on Friday evening.
“I find this hilarious and I appreciate the comedy and the levity that Cory Booker added the other week because the chaos of the Kavanaugh hearing was way too much so he added humor by embarrassing himself. So thank you very much, Cory [Booker],” Boothe began.
“You imagine he’s sitting there the night before and he’s like ‘this is what I’m going to say, I am Spartacus,'” she continued. “Pounding his chest and it turns out he’s more Sparky than Spartacus. Because the documents were cleared for release that morning, yet he still tried to grandstand – be this big guy, tried to do this tough guy act.”
On Thursday, Booker said he didn’t mean to call himself Spartacus for threatening to release confidential documents about Kavanaugh in an interview with The Hill. (RELATED: Booker Breaks Silence After Clarence Haymaker On ‘Spartacus’ Moment -Backtracks Completely)
“When ultimately the documents were already cleared. So now he’s got egg on his face and it’s very embarrassing and we have seen the grandstanding moments from him before. So I think it’s very comical he ended up embarrassing himself and added humor for everyone else,” Boothe concluded.
