About this Episode

Tony Katz talks about the sad antics of Democratic Sen. Cory Booker during the confirmation hearing of SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Booker announced that he would release confidential emails - under risk of Senate explusion! - that show Kavanaugh talking about racial profiling.

"This is what happens when you hate Trump and believe your own hype!" said Tony. "It's the picture of elitism. Booker believes that he is the arbiter of decency and justice, and that rules that get in his way must be sidestepped for the good of the country. Who votes for this guy?"

But a look into the emails shows that they aren't about racial profiling in general, but are specific to conversation that happened in the wake of 9/11; literally months after the attacks.

UPDATE - It was learned, after the show, that Bush WH lawyers had cleared the memos Booker released. Meaning that Booker's show of bravado was nothing more than bad acting from a bad actor.
