Crowd Goes WILD After Clarence Thomas’ Epic Take Down of Cory ‘Spartacus’ Booker [WATCH]

During an interview on C-SPAN, Thomas took a shot at New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker (D), who recently referred to himself as “Spartacus.”

The crowd loved it.

From Daily Caller:

[…] one of the biggest burns of Booker came from sitting Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. Speaking with the Federalist Society, Justice Thomas was asked about the general politicization of the court by politicians and preserving the “legitimacy” of the court.

Thomas scoffed at the question, saying that justices need to be “honest,” and “follow the law.” Thomas then said that the word “honorable” needs to be used more in relation to those in public life. Thomas said “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’…”

Thomas wasn’t the only person to troll Booker:

What Booker was attempting to do during the Kavanaugh hearings was get his name out there for the public to notice.

From New York Post:

Booker was claiming he was standing up for the release of classified documents written by nominee Brett Kavanaugh about the use of “racial profiling” at airports in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks.

Booker made a point of saying he was willing to get expelled from the Senate by releasing ­emails the committee had deemed classified.

His “Spartacus” quote was a reference to the 1960 Oscar-winning movie starring Kirk Douglas as leader of a slave revolt.

Cory will most likely run for president in 2020, via Washington Times:

Some Democrats auditioned for a 2020 presidential bid while others tried to shore up support from the party’s liberal base ahead of November’s elections as they competed Tuesday to show the most resistance to President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee.

Mr. Booker and Ms. Harris also used the opportunity to blast out campaign emails, asking voters to sign a petition against Judge Kavanaugh.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, a South Carolina Republican who ran for president in 2016 but flamed out in the GOP primary, said he understood Democrats’ motivation in ganging up on Judge Kavanaugh. He said he voted for the confirmations of President Barack Obama’s two picks, Justices Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor.

“I would suggest you think long and hard if you have a political ambition of voting for this guy because it will not play well on your side,” he told Democrats.

But he said they shouldn’t be surprised when Judge Kavanaugh wins confirmation: “To my friends on the other side, you can’t lose the election and pick judges. If you want to pick judges you better win.”

Senators grandstanding in hearings to make a name for themselves is nothing new. It happens on both sides of the aisle.

But to do something like this during the Kavanaugh hearings is futile, considering even left-leaning CNN know Democrats won’t be able to stop the judge from being confirmed to the Supreme Court.

From Daily Caller:

[CNN anchor John] King said Democrats are using the tactic of delaying until after the Midterms since they don’t have the “math” to stop the nomination and “because they don’t have the votes at the end.”

“You saw Democrats right out of the box delay the hearing, postpone the hearing — it’s all about politics. We’ll get to the policy when Judge Kavanaugh starts answering questions,” King said, “He could change the court balance on abortion, on gay marriage, on health care access. So far it’s been about politics. That tells me the Democrats began this hearing knowing they don’t have the math. They’re trying to stop it at the beginning because they don’t have the votes at the end.”
