For a while now, Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) has been touted as a possible future candidate for president. Lately, though, his progressive liberalism has been shooting his chances in the foot.

The confirmation hearings for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh were a huge opportunity for Booker to nab the national spotlight, but his humiliating “I am Spartacus” moment where he flubbed up the facts badly made him a laughing stock for conservatives.

And now he’s saying that Canada is more American than America.

During a speech in South Carolina last week at Allen University, Booker complained that “I can’t stand how they’re out-Americaning us in Canada,” the Washington Times reported.

Referencing the Canadian prime minister, he continued, “Trudeau? Give me a break. It costs about six to seven percent median income to go to college. What does it cost in America? Fifty-two percent of median income.”

“Why are other nations out-Americaning us?” he asked.

Then Booker added, “Why are they out-investing infrastructure the way we used to? Why are they out-investing in research and development the way we used to? Why are they out-investing in education the way we used to? Why are they universal pre-school and we’re not? Why are they doing paid family leave and we’re not?”

So, the more your government taxes and spends, the more American it is?

“[Other nations are] trying to beat us to the future when we used to lead in America,” he also claimed.

His remarks simply earned him even more ridicule from conservatives.
