Elder: Booker 'Trashing' Jeff Sessions Was His 2020 'Coming Out Party'
Salem radio host Larry Elder said New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker's (D) testimony against Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) was his "coming out party" for a prospective 2020 run.
Booker, a former Newark mayor, became the first senator to testify against another's nomination to a cabinet post.
"Cory Booker has been ready to run [for president] since preschool," Elder said, "his coming out party nationally was to trash Jeff Sessions."
Booker's testimony against Sessions, President-elect Donald Trump's pick for attorney general, flies in the face of the fact the two have worked together on legislation recently, Elder said.
The two also worked to award medals to civil rights marchers.
"Cory Booker used Jeff Sessions to beat up on Donald Trump," Elder said.
