Cory Booker: Sometimes I Feel Like Punching Donald Trump
2020 hopeful mocks president and admitted he wanted to take a swing at him
Presidental 2020 hopeful Cory Booker has confessed he has to resist urges of violence against President Donald Trump, according to reports.
Booker admitted he felt like punching the president during an appearance on NBC’s “Late Night With Seth Meyers."
The Democrat mocked the president’s physique, adding that his “testosterone” sometimes makes him want to take a swing at Trump.
“Donald Trump is a guy who, you understand, he hurts you, and my testosterone sometimes makes me want to feel like punching him, which would be bad for this elderly out-of-shape man that he is if I did that,” Booker told the audience.
But Booker didn't stop there, he continued to attack Trump’s appearance, calling the president a “physically weak specimen,” while calling him a “body-shamer,” and a “bully.”
“He’s the body-shamer, he’s the guy that shows — tries to drag people in the gutter,” Booker said.
Not missing out on a political opportunity, Booker then pushed his campaign message, saying that Democrats have to demonstrate what they’re for, and not just what they’re against.
“In this moral moment, we need not to talk about necessarily what we’re against, but what we’re for. And the best way of looking at this is just our history,” Booker said.

"The gardens of our democracy have never been free of the weeds of bigotry, hatred, demagoguery. Every generation has had them.”
This is not the first time Booker expressed violence.
Last year, the Democrat issued a call to action to his supporters, calling for violence against Conservatives.
Booker called on his followers to "get up in the face" of Trump supporters.
The former Mayor of Newark echoed Maxine Waters' aggressive rhetoric when she called on her supporters to use violent confrontation against Republicans and their supporters during a rally in June.
Following Waters' call for violence, a number of President Trump's supporters were violently attacked.
A Flordia man was punched in the face and dragged 30 feet while his arm was trapped in a car by a man who was angry that he was displaying a Trump flag in his front yard.
