Fox News host Tucker Carlson enthusiastically tore into Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) over his slavish, racial hero-worship of Supreme Court nominee Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, labeling the groveling Democrat as “the Jussie Smollett of Democratic politics.”

“It turns out there are confirmation hearings underway right now, you may have heard about them, for a Biden appointee called Ketanji Jackson. Jackson is a world-renowned legal genius who, for reasons that are still not clear, cannot determine what a woman is. We told you about her last night. But so far, the star of these hearings has not been Ketanji Jackson. It’s been a junior senator from New Jersey called Cory Booker,” Carlson said, launching into his roasting of Booker.

“Cory Booker is from a world you have never been to. He’s from a hard, unforgiving world of crime, decay, and raw urban authenticity. Cory Booker is from the streets of Newark. He once described his world in an interview, ‘I still remember my first month on the street,’ he said. ‘I walked up to this charismatic black guy my age called T-Bone, who was one of the drug lords. I said, ‘Yo, man, what’s up?’ And he leaped up in front of me, looked me right in the eye and said, ‘Who the blank do you think you are? If you ever so much as look at me again, I’m going to put a cap in your a**,'” he recounted.

“Now, T-Bone, as you probably concluded, was one of Newark’s most notorious drug lords. As Joe Biden might have said, he was a bad dude. But Cory Booker is a bad dude too in his own way and the two became close. The Rhodes Scholar and the crack slinger, united by a common love of the street,” Carlson continued.

“But then inevitably, tragedy struck. Cory Booker learned that T-Bone was on the lam from the law. By this point. Cory Booker was the mayor of Newark, so the friendship couldn’t last. As Booker later recalled with sadness, ‘that rift between me and T-Bone was inches. We sat there, but I felt so alienated that there was a gulf as wide as the Grand Canyon between us and I could not reach out to save this young man, and we drove back to a housing project called Brick Towers, and I’ve never seen him again since that day,'” Carlson regaled his audience.

“It’s a poignant story, but Cory Booker isn’t alone. No one has seen T-Bone since that day. In fact, no one has ever seen T-Bone at any point ever because T-Bone doesn’t exist. As we later learned, T-Bone is a fictional character. Cory Booker made him up entirely, but Cory Booker didn’t stop there. He also invented his own identity,” he added.

“It turns out that Cory Booker is not a product of the streets of Newark, not even close. He is, in fact, a blue-eyed rich kid from an all-white suburb. His parents were IBM executives. Now you can judge, but you have to concede that whatever else he is, Cory Booker is a remarkable actor. He is the Jussie Smollett of Democratic politics. A fraud? Yes, but a deeply committed one, a man who has honed his skills and those skills have been on full display this week as Booker has imploded all over Ketanji Jackson. Now Jackson is an oppressed member of the professional class too. She went to Harvard and Harvard Law School. So, the two of them have a lot in common. Watch their solidarity,” Carlson snarkily pointed out.

After playing another clip of Booker fawning at the feet of Jackson, Carlson asked, “That’s not Jussie Smollett? Did you see the footage from the sentencing? That’s not Jussie Smollett? It’s exactly Jussie Smollett. Now you could say, ‘I’m offended by it,’ but you can also acknowledge that’s art. The best part is that Cory Booker and Kamala Harris share a knowing glance, as they have for years. It’s the mutual recognition of the totally fraudulent. A faker knows a faker. ‘Oh, you’re pretending to be someone, you’re not? Me too,'” the Fox News host mocked.

“It’s easy to enjoy all this. Imagine if you worked at, say, CNN or MSNBC or NBC News, and you had to pretend that that was an authentic scene that meant something, that was rooted in some observable physical reality that people who went to Ivy League schools somehow are oppressed. Huh. So, you wouldn’t want to acknowledge any of that,” Carlson told viewers.

“You would want to point out that rather than ask a single actual question during the confirmation hearings, Cory Booker just slobbered all over the nominee. You wouldn’t be able to say any of that. So, you’d have to figure out a way to ignore it and… our media dutifully did,” he stated.

“You should know that not one of the people you just saw is a poor person. Not one of them is oppressed. Not one of them has anything at all in common with the people they claim to speak for. So, they are to a person every bit as fraudulent as the people on stage, telling you from the peak of the fake meritocracy that they’re somehow fighting against the current. Of course, the opposite is true, but you’re not allowed to say it, but imagine the reserve of energy it takes as a newsman to pretend, having shown the clips that we just did, that that was anything but horrifying, anything but so fake that the hair on the back of your neck goes up at the fraudulence,” Carlson continued.

“That’s honestly like telling you that Lia Thomas is a deeply accomplished female swimmer who’s winning because she just practiced harder than the other girls. A lot of the black women who watched that loved it, said one NBC journalist — a person who can’t define what a woman is. The problem with all this is easy to make fun of, but the problem is they are praising a sitting United States senator (remember the Judiciary Committee) for asking zero questions during a confirmation hearing, during which we’re choosing the next Supreme Court justice,” he said.

“They’re saying it is immoral because of the way that she looks, to ask her real questions, to know what we’re getting before she takes the seat for life, and of course, this was the whole point. It’s the Greta Thunberg play. You throw someone up there who represents your views, who can’t be questioned because anyone who questions the person is, of course, mean or racist or sexist or whatever. You know, pick your attack, but the person is immune from sincere questions,” the conservative host put forth.

“Yet even if you agree that because the internet makes acquiring kiddy porn easier, we shouldn’t be as tough on kiddy porn. Even if you think that’s a fair standard, it’s certainly fair to ask about it in a Supreme Court hearing, no? For comparison’s sake, and we didn’t want to go here, it’s just too obvious, but we can’t control ourselves. This is how the emotive, weepy Cory Booker treated the last nominee to the Supreme Court, someone whose politics he doesn’t agree with. He told us at the time that Brett Kavanaugh was so odious, so morally filthy, so satanic that anyone who could vote for his nomination was guilty of a mortal sin,” Carlson recalled.

“That’s the guy lecturing you about God. And like all phony people, you see a little glimpse of cruelty and meanness beneath. ‘Did you have a beer? Answer the question.’ And what’s funny is that Brett Kavanaugh actually had to answer the question, not that it mattered in the end. It wouldn’t matter what he said,” he elaborated.

“Ketanji Brown Jackson, meanwhile, still is not explaining what the meaning of the word woman is. Are women even real? Turns out that question is now above the pay grade of the U.S. Supreme Court. Maybe we’re meant to think of women as an archetype, a pastiche. Maybe they’re like T-Bone, the baddest drug lord in Newark. One minute women are here, fully female and authentic, filling you in on the gritty details of womanhood. The next thing you know, you drop them off at a housing project and they’re gone forever,” Carlson concluded ending his diatribe on Booker who was torched by conservatives for his sycophancy.
