GOP Senator to Corey Booker: ‘Get a Grip’
A Republican Senator from Texas chided Sen. Corey Booker on Twitter after Booker told a crowd that he “cried tears of rage” over President Dondld J. Trump’s rhetoric.
“Get a grip,” Sen. John Cornyn wrote on Twitter, linking to Daily Caller article about Booker’s speech at the Netroots Nation convention in New Orleans.

During his speech, Booker painted an abominable picture of America, befitting only of an out-of-touch leftist politician who needs to stir up division in order to attract voters.
“I’m a big believer that if America, if this country hasn’t broken your heart, then you don’t love her enough,” he said. “Because there’s things that are savagely wrong in this country. There’s a normalcy of injustice that we’ve accepted.”
Booker then spoke heroically about how his time as the mayor of Newark, NJ gave him the “sense of purpose” necessary to fight Trump.
“And I tell you, Newark has gifted me a wisdom that can only come from moons, a sense of purpose that can only come from shared pain,” Booker said. “It’s a city that at times where my heart has been broken but I’ve learned that the heart is this interesting organ that, it’s the only one that really works even if it’s gotten broken.”
Booker comes from the Obama school of American politics – the one that views America as a fundamentally evil country in need of a massive overhaul, rather than the greatest country ever conceived and built that has minor problems in comparison to the rest of the world.
Cornyn is right. Booker needs to get a grip.
