Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey seemed to confirm suspicions of a 2020 presidential run telling New York Magazine it would be “irresponsible not to” at least consider challenging President Trump.
“Of course the presidency will be something I consider. It would be irresponsible not to…”
Vote for Faux Spartacus?

Sen. Cory Booker (D., N.J.) said in an interview published Wednesday that it would be “irresponsible” for him to not consider a presidential run in 2020.
“Of course the presidency will be something I consider. It would be irresponsible not to,” Booker told New York Magazine.
The lawmaker has become known for his attention-grabbing antics at Senate hearings, such as berating Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen over alleged racist remarks President Donald Trump made about African countries or declaring he was having an “I am Spartacus” moment during Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation battle.
A tireless campaigner, he is a sought-after voice by liberal Democrats around the country running for office in 2018.
Booker is one of numerous Democrats rumored to be or publicly mulling a White House bid to challenge Trump, many of them also in the U.S. Senate. More
Go ahead and run… We need the comedy of another brainless progressive telling us what to do when we already know who we are pulling the lever for in 2020 and it isn’t him or his socialist party.
CORY “SPARTACUS” BOOKER says it would be irresponsible for him not to consider a presidential run in 2020 – Trump is so delighted to hear, that he probably went to the golf course & shot a 64 for a round – Booker is no more than a 2-bit showman, who belongs working in the circus!

Hope him and 50 more run. They will be slitting the democrats party and Trump will have master boost for re-election. P.S. By the way, it will provide conservatives with months of laughter. https://t.co/Kt3R5r0Tew
