Booker Discusses ‘Cozy’ Relationship in Cosmo Puff Piece

In a recent interview with Cosmopolitan, 2020 White House contender Cory Booker discussed his “cozy” relationship with actress girlfriend Rosario Dawson.

Asked what makes him feel “cozy,” Booker replied, “This is so Cosmo. What makes me feel cozy? I’m literally going to be mocked by my own girlfriend because: cuddling up with my girlfriend watching TV… Can we talk about football again? Yeah, but isn’t that great to cuddle up with somebody?” Asked if he prefers a blanket, he said he likes to be “chilly and cuddling up.”

“She keeps me grounded,” said Booker, who has been dogged by gay rumors for years. “She doesn’t let me take myself too seriously. She thinks I’m really corny, but she thinks it’s really adorable. But we just definitely have personalities I think that resonate like a symphony and not a cacophony, so I feel very, very lucky.”

To be fair, one doesn’t expect hard-hitting news journalism from Cosmopolitan. But try to imagine the women’s mag doing a similarly fluffy profile of a Republican politician.
