A few weeks ago Newark mayor Cory Booker appeared on Meet the Press where he delivered a few mild criticisms of the way Obama has administered his reelection campaign. Shortly thereafter, something resembling a hostage video of the mayor walking back his criticisms was released through Booker's social media channels, prompting Mollie Hemingway to ask, "Is Cory Booker all right?"
The answer, in short, is no.
It’s bye-bye, Beltway for Cory Booker.
Newark’s mayor, who was gunning for a spot in President Obama’s Cabinet, lost the chance after he shot his mouth off during a blunderingly honest TV appearance last month, sources told The Post.
“He’s dead to us,” one ranking administration official said of the prevailing feelings at the White House and Obama headquarters in Chicago.
Pardon the disingenuous concern trolling, but what, oh, what have the Democrats come to when a sensible guy like Cory Booker isn't even welcome within the Party?
