Spartacus Down: Cory Booker Ends His Presidential Campaign

Trying to judge the most anti-gun Democrat in the 2020 presidential nomination field is like trying to determine which which TV talking head is the most insipid and annoying. Each one is so qualified and the differences are so slight that comparisons are futile.

But with media clowns like Eric Swalwell and Robert Francis O’Rourke relegated to the ash heap of presidential electoral history, there’s a good argument to be made that Cory “Spartacus” Booker is the most outspokenly anti-gun conventional candidate left in the field (Michael Bloomberg is in a gun-grabbing world all his own).

Well, he was.

T-Bone’s best friend called it quits today, ending the slow-motion failure that was his presidential bid. As part of the long-winded bloviating goodbye he posted announcing the end of his White House quest, he had this to say:

Over the past eleven months of this campaign, we rallied around bold ideas to tackle some of the biggest challenges we face as a nation. We moved the debate forward on gun violence — introducing a plan with the most aggressive gun safety measures our country had ever seen. We advocated for progressive, swift change to our criminal justice reform system. We fought to protect and strengthen reproductive rights and access to abortion. Together, we spoke out and stood up for people and communities that have been left out and left behind.

“Gun safety.” Otherwise known as prohibition and confiscation. And double-speak, too. Booker famously said that gun control would make Americans free.

He was a stickler for semantics, calling his fellow candidates out for making the mistake of calling firearms confiscation “confiscation.”

He loved to lie about how few regulations were required for Americans to purchase a firearm…so much so that even the Washington Post called BS.

And Booker had an alarming amount of trouble comprehending the Constitution. Well, more than the average US Senator anyway.

He continually confused an enumerated right (keeping and bearing arms) with a privilege (driving a car).

Now, though, the Senator from New Jersey has thrown in the presidential towel. We won’t have him to kick around any more or be forced to listen to his airy, pseudo-intellectual takes on, well, anything (other than having to endure his bombastic performances in committee hearings).

Over the past year on the campaign trail, I’ve had the pleasure of meeting so many incredible, inspiring, engaged people all over this country, and I am more confident now than ever that together we will rise.

Thank you for believing in me. I am so proud of what we built, and I feel nothing but hope.

At least he feels good about the whole thing and that’s what really matters, isn’t it?

    The problem is that the rest of the D field is just as stupid.

      C’mon everyone, sing it with me:

        Careful with the Queen reference someone may think you are trying to out him. Forgot if it’s a thought crime as of yet.

        1. avatar JR Pollock says:

          He’s already out, so to speak. Anyone taking bets on when Thenator Thparticuth, and his UZI- toting beard part ways?

        2. avatar Out him says:

          The wanna be Spartacus is a raging heterosexual, or so he claims. He even hired some actress from a movie that didn’t bomb to pretend to be his female friend. He is so assertively hetero, you know he’s as gay as can be.

    2. avatar frank speak says:

      still…that’s one less….,

  2. avatar Dude says:

    T-Bone’s best friend had zero bold ideas, and was as fake and pandering as the rest of the field.

    At least Gabbard and Yang have their own ideas and come across as genuine. You have to respect that even if you don’t like their ideas. Fake, wide-eyed Spartacus deserves no respect.

    1. avatar Baldwin says:

      “You have to respect that …”

      No you don’t. A dumb ass is just as bad as a dumber ass. Nothing good will come of either.

      1. avatar Dude says:

        True, you don’t, and they’re all terrible, but personally, I prefer genuine people with their own ideas over fake people that follow the crowd and lean on their skin color for support.

    2. avatar I Haz A Question says:

      Naw, Yang’s done. The last thing anyone remembers about him is his “get on your knees for some whipped cream” stunt that backfired on him so spectacularly, his own aide pulled him away and told him to stop.

        Hey, look at that. That’s the first time I’ve ever seen a YouTube URL appear as text in a comment and not a thumbnail of the vid itself.

        Has the site changed its comment syntax?

      2. avatar Dude says:

        I actually never saw that before. WTH was he thinking and why were guys lining up for that?

          “WTH was he thinking and why were guys lining up for that?”

          Do you really have to ask that question? 😉

    That’s a damn shame. I could have hated on him worse than I did for Obummer. Probably not as bad as if Hitlery was elected but it would have been right up there steeped and saturated with seething hatred and disgust.

    So Rosario Dawson doesn’t have to pretend Spartacus isn’t gay anymore?!? Cool story bro😃😎😏

  5. avatar jwm says:

    1 more turd in the blue swirl. I love the flushing sound.

  6. avatar PROUD chicano says:

    All these guys are just waiting for Bloomberg to cash them out.

    1. avatar jwm says:

      It’s a thing of beauty the way the socialist have been bought out by two old white billionaires. soros and kapo bloomberg.

      Its gotten to the point that calling the gop the party of the rich is a blatant lie.

    2. avatar Rusty - Die Ruthie Die - Chains says:

      I think he is just waiting for Iowa to thin the herd before he buys out Biden. After all Biden has already shown himself available to the highest bidder, with his son as his collection agent.

  7. avatar merlin grayman says:

    well … that nails it … i won’t be able to vote democrat now … it’s just a bunch of old white people.
    no ” diversity “

    1. avatar Geoff "I'm getting too old for this shit" PR says:

      “i won’t be able to vote democrat now … it’s just a bunch of old white people.”

      That’s properly funny, but we really need to harp on that about the democrats.

      Their voters need to “Teach the DNC a lesson” and sit out this election since a POC isn’t the nominee.

      That was a part of Trump’s victory – The angry ‘Bernie Bros’ who sat out because the DNC shafted Bernie the nomination. If Bernie was the candidate in 2016, there’s a good shot he would have won…

      1. avatar Hush says:

        Bernie may get “stuck” again. Pelosi may have held the articles of impeachment this long so that 4 of the democrats running would have to be in D C for the senate trial instead on on the campaign trail in Iowa.

        1. avatar Dude says:

          That’s beyond funny. Maybe Pelosi is pulling for Biden since this would benefit him.

  8. avatar D. says:

    Good. Another worthless, lying anti-American Democrat leaves the race. If he retired fully from politics we’d all benefit.

  9. avatar Robert Messmer says:

    Fidel, Williamson, and now Spartacus. They are starting to drop out much faster now. Three this month alone and we are not even half way through the month. This means that Deval Patrick is the last black in the contest. All we need to know about him is that in relation to Ruby Ridge, he decided that killing an unarmed woman holding a baby was not use of excessive force.

    1. Not sure you can even count Patrick as being “in the contest.” He’s polling at less than 1% in New Hampshire (which borders Massachusetts) where he should have the best name recognition.

      Elsewhere, no one knows him and even fewer care. He’s a non-entity.

      1. avatar I Haz A Question says:

        LOL, I didn’t know the name or that this person is/was a candidate until I read it here just now.

        A non-entity, indeed.

  10. avatar Geoff "I'm getting too old for this shit" PR says:

    Bye, bye, Corey, bye, bye…

  11. avatar Dennis says:

    Clown show’s gettin smaller and smaller! No worry, he’ll be offered a job on CNN with all the other losers!!

    1. avatar Dude says:

      He has a pretty sweet gig making scenes in the Senate.

  12. avatar LUVITORLEEVIT says:

    This was by far the dumbest FUCK to ever walk the face of the earth! What needs to be done now is to remove his DUMB ASS from public office along with many more of his party forever, never to be allowed to serve in public office again. These Assholes are killing this country and until the American public wakes up and decides they need to go, we have no Future.

    1. avatar I Haz A Question says:

      Relax. Apparently, the public has indeed decided he needs to go…by not giving him the support needed to stay in the race. It’s all working out just fine.

  13. avatar G.W. says:

    Please, remember, all of the anti-gun gan are ANTI-CONSTITUTION!!!!! A vote for one of them is a vote against the Constitution.

  14. avatar Green Mtn. Boy says:

    Just another would be petty Communist tyrant, down the drain.

  15. avatar WI Patriot says:

    This idiot was a clown from the word go, he never had any real intention on running for POTUS, he just wanted to bolster his offshore account(s), and get what’s her name to swallow…

  16. avatar Jim from LI says:

    After watching his shameless antics during the Kavanaugh show trial I wouldn’t vote for him if he brought back $.25/gallon gasoline.

  17. avatar Bemused Berseker says:

    Ol Spartadumbassacus finally saw the writing on the wall it appears. How many millions flushed down the Democrat Crapper?

    Schmuck!

    So long, sucker!

    Does it mean his race card has been revoked?

    “Thank you for believing in me. You have chosen…poorly!”

    The twit has only ever been running for the lifetime honor of “former Presidential Candidate”.

  23. avatar possum and the"Coons of Doom" says:

    It would be a lot better system if only men whom have fought and died for this country could run for president

    1. avatar ‘liljoe says:

      But then you’d only have Democrats running… or is it only dead Democrats that vote?

      1. avatar mac says:

        No. Deceased illegals and dead prison inmates vote Dem too.

  24. avatar mac says:

    He self-describes as Spartacus to remind us that he had to overcome slavery. What a guy! Good riddance.

  25. avatar Bud Harton says:

    With Corey dropping out, that leaves Elizabeth Warren as the only black candidate left.

  26. avatar Wally1 says:

    This just is prove that democrats will even vote for a mildly retarded person. Have you ever heard this guy speak. He sounds like he is retarded, and people clap. . What happened to the east coast of America? Don’t drink the water there.
