Cory Booker is at it again, trying to score himself another soundbite. Though, this one came back and blew up in his face. He tried playing “GOTCHA” with Trump’s latest judicial nominee. Instead, he ended up once again proving himself to be a brainless lefty ninnymuggins.

On Tuesday, the New Jersey Democratic senator tried to turn up the heat once again while grilling Neomi Rao, the nominee to replace Kavanaugh on the U.S. Court of Appeals for D.C., on whether she ever had any LGBTQ law clerks.
Rao responded: “Senator, I’ve yet to be a judge. I don’t have law clerks.”
Oops. Who needs homework when you have such splendid jazz hands?
Booker didn’t miss a beat, and clarified that he meant “someone working for you.” Rao is currently the head of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, a position described as the Trump administration’s “deregulatory czar.”
“To be honest I don’t know the sexual orientation of my staff,” Rao responded. “I take people as they come, irrespective of their race, ethnicity, sexual orientation. I treat people as individuals.”
Take that, Spartacus!
Ms. Rao here is more concerned about hiring people based on their individual qualities. As opposed to lefties, who collect token employees to boost their “woke” status. “Yep, this one has all the melanin. That one has a peg leg. This one’s so body positive, she needs a crane to get out of bed. Ain’t I just the best boss?”
Professionalism used to mandate people keep certain details about themselves private. You didn’t introduce yourself by saying “hi, I’m Chad. I like to fondle busty blondes in French maid outfits with the lights on.” Though, according to Booker, every judicial nominee should have all the details on who their employees like to bone. This may be the closest he’ll ever come to an “I am Michael Scott” moment.
Lefties don’t care about your abilities or your accomplishments. Their only concern is which boxes you check off. So much for “the content of their character.”
