Cory Booker Asks Dr. Ford To Please Stop Interrupting His 2020 Campaign Speech

WASHINGTON, D.C.—During a Senate hearing investigating whether Brett Kavanaugh is likely to have committed sexual assault, Senator Cory Booker asked Kavanaugh's accuser, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, to please stop interrupting his 2020 presidential campaign speech.

"Excuse me, ma'am, but I was grandstanding for my voter base, and I would appreciate it if you would stop interrupting me," he said Dr. Ford attempted to answer one of his questions. "I am here for one reason and one reason only: to rile up Democrats and get my name out there, so I can beat out all the other possible candidates for the nomination coming up here."

When Ford stuttered and attempted to reply, Booker held up a finger. "Ma'am, I was very clear. I expect you to remain silent as I pursue various lines of questioning that are designed solely for me to get some good soundbites up on my social media accounts as soon as possible. Are we clear?"

"I! AM! SPARTACUS!" he concluded.
