Cory Booker Embarrasses Himself Grilling Court Nominee

Sen. Cory Booker embarrassed himself Tuesday questioning U.S. Court of Appeals for D.C. nominee Neomi Rao about her views on LGBTQ rights.

The 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful asked, “Have you ever had any LGBTQ law clerks?”

“Senator, I’ve yet to be a judge,” responded Rao. “I don’t have law clerks.”

When Booker clarified that he meant “people who work for you, Rao added, “To be honest I don’t know the sexual orientation of my staff. I take people as they come, irrespective of their race, ethnicity, sexual orientation. I treat people as individuals.”
