Booker: Senators Who Support Trump's SCOTUS Pick Are 'Complicit in Evil'
'Outnumbered' calls out the 'ridiculous' rhetoric.
Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) urged all Democrats to oppose President Trump's Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, saying anyone who supports him is "complicit in the evil."
“I’m here to call on folks to understand that in a moral moment there is no neutral. In a moral moment there is no bystanders,” Booker said, alongside senators Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders.
“You are either complicit in the evil, you are either contributing to the wrong, or you are fighting against it.”
He went on to reference the Bible's passage about "walking through the valley of the shadow of death."
“It doesn’t say that I sit in the valley of the shadow of death. It doesn’t say I’m sitting on the sidelines in the valley of the shadow of death. It says I am walking through the valley of the shadow of death. It says I am taking agency, that I am going to make it through this crisis."
Warren said Democrats "are on the moral side of history," while Sanders argued the U.S. Constitution is at stake. Senators Heidi Heitkamp, Joe Donnelly and Joe Manchin - all red state Democrats in tough re-election battles - could opt to vote for Kavanaugh's confirmation, as they did with Justice Neil Gorsuch.
Former Republican House member Jason Chaffetz said on "Outnumbered" Wednesday that Democrats cannot claim the "moral high ground" and refuse to even meet with Kavanaugh to hear his point of view.
Melissa Francis said she believes many Americans are growing tired of the rhetoric from the left that anyone who disagrees with them is "evil."
"I couldn't roll my eyes any harder listening to that press conference. It was so ridiculous," said Katie Pavlich, questioning why Democrats never call the MS-13 gang "evil."
