Fiery Ingraham: C-SPAN Should Give Cory Booker an Award for Best Supporting Actor
"If C-SPAN handed out Best Supporting Actor awards, a gold statuette would surely go to New Jersey Senator Cory Booker," she said.
It all started when Nielsen said Tuesday during questioning that she didn't recall President Trump referring to "s***hole countries" during a bipartisan immigration meeting last week.
Booker tore into Nielsen, saying he had "tears of rage" when he heard about the comment and said her "amnesia is complicity" with Trump's bigotry.
"Tears of rage? That's actually bad acting," said Ingraham, asking why Booker did not express similar outrage last year when an illegal immigrant named Edgar Mendoza allegedly broke into a Trenton, N.J., home and raped a 6-year-old girl.
She said no public comment from Booker about the case could be found.
.@CLewandowski_: "The outrage over every single thing this president has done is so overblown. Now they are calling into question a medical doctor who also performed the same exact tests on @BarackObama and George W. Bush." https://t.co/lsTkWLDwI4 #IngrahamAngle pic.twitter.com/U3cjP8VMpo

"The crime should have never happened because that man should never have been in this country, Senator. His silence is unacceptable and complicit, at least to me," said Ingraham.
Ingraham said Booker is "obviously" testing out language and themes for a potential 2020 presidential campaign. She said Democrats, including those who are boycotting the State of the Union address, are staging political "stunts" while the president and Republicans work on solutions to fix the immigration system.
"I will take solutions over stunts any day of the week," she concluded.
