Last week’s Senate confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh were a democratic party shitshow. Dianne Feinstein lied about guns, Kamala Harris lied about abortion, Mazie Hirono lied about rape, but no one was more full of crap than Cory Booker. The NJ Senator released some documents he had permission to release and then proclaimed himself “Spartacus.” A couple of sitting Supreme Court Justices have weighed in and concluded that Booker is a major-league douchebag.
The highlight of last week’s hearings came when Booker claimed he was going to release some top-secret documents that proved Kavanaugh was racist. In reality, Booker had permission to release these documents and they showed that Kavanaugh is definitely not racist. Booker made a huge spectacle out of this, claiming he was breaking the rules to get out the truth. And with that he said, “This is about the closest I’ll probably ever have in my life to an ‘I am Spartacus’ moment.”
Liberal Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg was less than impressed with Booker and all of the democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee. Amy Wang from The Washington Post reported:
Justice Ginsburg (visiting @gwlaw) contrasts her confirmation process to Kavanaugh’s, says it was “truly bipartisan” back then. “The way it was was right. The way it is is wrong… I wish I could wave a magic wand and have it go back to the way it was.” #RBG

When you’ve lost RBG, you have truly screwed the pooch. Ginsberg is a liberal superhero and even she was disgusted by the way democrats handled Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings.
On the other side of the ideological aisle, Justice Clarence Thomas also thought the democrats made fools of themselves and took an opportunity to mock Cory Booker specifically. Thomas was speaking to the Federalist Society and the topic of Kavanugh’s confirmation hearings.
Thomas referred to his own confirmation hearing as a “high-tech lynching” and then dropped this bomb on Cory Booker:
“Honorable – if we could use that word about more people who are in public life, people who actually ask the questions at confirmation hearings, instead of ‘Spartacus,’” said Thomas.
Ouch. Thomas wasn’t done calling out Booker for the clown that he is:
“If we could use the word honorable more often, think about the difference it’ll make. Then, you’ll have a legacy. We will have left the country in better shape, morally, structurally than we found it But as long as we’re looking at our interests, or scoring points, or looking cute, or being on TV. Especially the legal system, how do we maintain it? If you can’t debate hard issues honestly, with honor, with integrity, how do we keep a civil society?” Thomas said.
Uh oh, Clarence Thomas just called Cory Booker “uncivilized” and “dishonorable.” That has to be racist, right? Sure, Thomas is black, but he’s conservative, so clearly the rules of racism, made up by liberals, dictate that Thomas is a white supremacist. I think RGB is cool with her criticism of Booker and the democrats however, because she is on the left.
The Supreme Court is usually divided along ideological lines, but here they are in agreement: Cory Booker is an embarrassment. The Justices don’t always see eye-to-eye on issues like gun control, abortion, and same-sex marriage, but they have rendered a unanimous decision that the New Jersey democrat is a grandstanding attention-whore.
