Senator Cory Booker talks about his latest book “United” and how America has been shaped by love.
Oh, Cory. What a corporal shill.
I used to like this guy, then… he endorsed Hillary Clinton.
i tuned out the whole time
Cory has gone down the same path as Howard Dean. Sold out.
Talk pretty, sold to Hillary.
I’ve missed Stephen over the weekend.
What a nice guy, but holy hell he never stops talking.
Tradition is to allow it to remain vacant, if you do not, you have chosen to be the aggressor, to attack, to increase tension, and to escalate the situation. I do not think that that is a rational decision. Typically, it is pressed on to part of the voter decision in the next election in a situation like this, or so it seems, from what I’ve been told.
Nice to hear pettiness so quickly inspired by a person with a good message. Are we at the point now that everyone has to sling crap in a party election? Can’t everyone just throw it at Trump? It’s the only message he understands!
You like chocolate?
someone tell me if this dude is black or white its hurting my head
Typical scumbag politician. Gets asked a question, spends 3 minutes avoiding it.
There’s still 10.5 months left in the election year. Almost 25% of a president’s term. I’m not familiar with the precedents, but my impression is that’s too much time to ask to wait for a new justice to be selected. Are the Senate Republicans just going to ask the other justices to sit around not hearing cases for 10.5 months + however long it takes for the selection? Instead they should do their jobs and ask for nominations and figure out which one they think would defend the Constitution and maintain the checks and balances between the 3 branches. Which probably wouldn’t work out, anyway, since both Obama and both parties in Congress has a history of ignoring the Constitution and Bill of Rights when it’s convenient.
“You know what they say about ties, it’s about like kissing your sister.” Because she’s a stale mate…?
He knows what he’s talking about. He’s received a lot of LOVE from Wall Street .
No disrespect, but this guy is full of shit. Plus, he endorsed Hillary and is owned by Wall St.
I hope this guy loses his election and ends up destitute realizing the only skill he ever had was groveling for money from Wall Street and acting like Hillary’s little slave. He probably won’t lose, he’s black and apparently half the Democratic Party just votes just according to whether somebody has a vagina or some dark skin.
The idea of the President nominating a new Supreme Court Justice during an election year being controversial is ridiculous. It’s been done before. In 1912, Taft nominated a Justice. In 1916, Wilson nominated two Justices. In November of 1987, Reagan nominated a Justice.
Plus, the Constitution is what gives the President the power to nominate Justices. The Constitution says that the President shall nominate, with the advice and consent of the Senate, Judges of the Supreme Court.
4:55 made me really happy. Steered Cory back to the question after he detoured quite a bit. Great job again Stephen!
I like that Colbert called out Booker’s evasion of the question about filling the Supreme Court vacancy.
so is this now part of the casting for Clinton’s VP slot?
The vitriol and anger from Bernie supporters directed toward anyone who hasn’t endorsed Bernie does his candidacy no good. In leaving these comments, you serve as a representative of his campaign and you aren’t doing senator Sanders any favors by being petty, malicious and negative. A huge part of Bernie’s appeal is his ability to stick to issues and not resort to personal attacks. Why should we not strive to do the same?
It’s hilarious that at 2:34, Stephen Colbert asked Cory a question about the SCOTUS replacement and Stephen had to cut him off at 4:57 because he didn’t answer the question. #OhPoliticians
not a bad guest i have no idea who he is never seen him b4
Love how Stephen brought him back to the question. The whole way through I was hoping he wouldn’t let that tap dance suffice.
What happened to you Cory. Ambition got the best of you.
i hate people that talk so much but dont answer the question
Mike “The Politician” Ross
I love his “conspiracy of love” talk. And it’s undeniably true.
Black lex luthor
What a c@*t…
Wow, he’s really warming up for a presidential run down the line. But I do kinda feel like he went back in time, murdered 2007 Barack Obama and is dancing around in his skin.
A simple google search shows what a joke this guy turned into… Come on Cory! You used to be cool…
What the hell do you people expect him to do in the era of citizens United, get the shit beat out of him over something as stupid as not knowing where the money is and getting it
The problem with the Democratic Party *isn’t* that they can’t co-operate with the Republicans. It’s that they are way too EAGER to co-operate with the Republicans while the Republicans are refusing to play along. That’s not brave or open minded, that’s just sad. And it makes me question why even have the Democratic Party if they’ll just end up agreeing with the Republicans anyway. What you need is an actual left wing party to balance out the right wing (GOP) and the constantly compromising center (the Democrats) just so you can even arrive at that center some day.
If Sanders doesn’t get the nomination, he should at least harness the momentum he’s gathered to start a third party. I don’t mean run as a third party candidate, I mean get some actual honest progressives together and found a new political party. Maybe that’d mean the Republicans would win in the short term but they wouldn’t win a majority (because there would be new voters and independents changing the numbers, as well as some possible ex-Republicans) and then the new party could ally with the Democrats and maybe finally get things done.
Getting really tired of the “pro-Sanders at any cost” comments – as in, some of the people on here completely disregard another person’s good ideas JUST BECAUSE they don’t support Sanders. That is completely the wrong mindset, and what is leading the United States into the divisive political hell its already in. Cory Booker talked about some good ideas – love, kindness, how could anyone disrespect that just because he’s pro-Clinton?
Pretty sad evolution from the guy I first saw on the Daily Show all those years ago to this person. What happened, Cory? From straight talk to literally the most meaningless drivel I’ve heard in a long time.
Why are there so few Cory Bookers and so many awful people?
What’s the beef? Why is this being downvoted?
” FOR Love of the Country” , “Don’t pre-judge ” common ground” these the highlight i got ….
Dude is weird looking, like a bald, human troll doll. Especially on the cover of his book.
he’s SERIOUSLY campaigning for 2020. the “OLD” CB wouldn’t have been so generically “campaigny” in his responses
geez there’s a lot of dragging this guy down for supporting Clinton.
WTFs with all the dislikes? The guy is making great points..
I honestly think he supports Hillary because he hasn’t researched her enough, not because he’s been paid off. I think he’s a good guy, if an ignorant one.
Not sure why he didn’t endorse Bernie. It truly makes no sense.
Positive: he’s a vegan
Colbert put him in his place while letting him run his mouth.
This bullshit artist didn’t say anything about getting money out of politics, which is the real issue. His fat ass is on the gravy train with senate pay, perks and a book to sell.
godamn he wouldn’t shutup about love and basically the message in his book, he kept repeating the same thing for like 3 minutes and i was in mental anguish, and im pretty sure colbert was in the same situation and i loved how he called him out on it and brought him back to the question which was exactly what i wanted colbert to do, just answer the question, don;t go on a 3 minute aside. love colbert
4:56 BOOM! Just answer the damn question Cory! Holy shit, how the hell did you take that question and launch into a festering pile of suck for 2 whole minutes talking about your book! Sly fucking politicians!
There’s a problem on the other side of the coin where people use “patriotisme”, albeit misguidedly, to endorse racism, xenophobia and homophobia among other things.
3:05-4:57 may as well be cut out. How was any of that a response to his question? lol
“…the truth of our history is a conspiracy of love…” Wonder if native americans feel the same way?
I thought he’s a mayor?
I just did a little research on this guy; apparently Newark didn’t do too well under his leadership and there were even a few corruption scandals. So, yeah, a conspiracy of love all right…
fake hand gestures. the Best way to spot a professional bser
of course Obama can nominate a justice, that’s what the constitution says, right? We do follow the constitution, if you can preach about how great the constitution is and put a don’t tread on me flag in your front yard ten you can follow the constitution, the answer is simple.
Booker on a soap box, Stephen has enough of it. Yeah.
I smell a cherry picker.
It’s crazy to think how recent racially-based laws were in place.
Wait, another Junior Senator of African decent out with a book when Hilary Clinton is running for office? Sounds familiar, hmm…
It’s unprecedented for a president to appoint a new judge during his *last six months in office.* That is the precedent that the Republicans are referring to. Obama has the best part of a year left. Let him do his bloody job.
Talking about love sure makes a lot of hateful people show up
To think this guy was fighting corrupt politics when he campaigned to become mayor of Newark…now he is endorsing Hilary Clinton who is as corrupt as any politican…
Thumbs up for Stephen telling him to stfu and answer the question.
wtf did i just watch.
united? certainly, feel free to unite with senators, representatives, secretaries of state, former governors against a man carrying the voice of the people. we’ll unite, you’ll unite, and from this unity on both sides we will see who stands best with our convictions.
Cory Booker is a bit off the center line of sanity….
He’s living in a Disney fantasy world.
Pretty bad when the host isn’t even pandering to your bs
careca chato do caraio se acha o Zé graça e não responde os baguio
sounds like a politician
Senator Cory Booker, You are a shining example of the Light Up The LOVE (TM) Global Movement. Thank you for all you do to “Be” and support the movement. Together, we are making a difference!
Ah Stephen you say what I’m thinking. When he was going on his rant I was thinking ‘the idealism and message is very nice but oh my god is he going to stop?’
Hearing Cory Booker talk made my day. He is so positive that it is contagious. :).
I adore his naivete.
You’re A Winrer. Hi thjre, macho hook What’s your opinion about”this 11
find some common ground
he did a horrible job of pitching his book. Seems more like a self help book than actual ways of working across any political aisles.
Cory Booker is a sell out. Please do not support him.
Dude has presidential ambition. Everyone of them writes a book like this…. and takes money from wall st.
I’m quite tired Bernie’s supporters vitriol towards any human being who supports anyone else besides their precious Bernie. You don’t see negativity towards Sander’s supporters from Clinton supporters. I’m sick of this double standard and hope Sanders fans can get their act together.
Marco Rubio v2 – memorised speech now with less repetition and added slime.
hillary supporter, fuck him
I know the USA likes to list patriotism as an exclusively virtuous ideal, but the idea that patriotism means you must necessarily love all of your fellow countrymen is bogus. If anything, it so often divides people and leads to accusations of being unpatriotic. Real mending the rifts between individuals in the USA today will come from shared humanity, not shared nationality.
We need more dudes like this!
Anyone notice how he quoted 30 rock on the “African saying”? xD
ras baraka > Booker
lol seems to me like he just didn’t want to answer the question……
A bunch of empty words… I’m glad Colbert called him out.
