Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) went off during a speaking event on Wednesday and urged his supporters to “get up in the face” of Republicans and those who support President Trump.
Booker was speaking at the National Conference on Ending Homelessness when he decided that this was the best time to attack the Republican party.
Booker riled up his supporters and Democratic activists saying they should “get up and please get up in the face of some Congress people.”
“Before I end, that’s my call to action here,” Booker concluded. “Please don’t just come here today and then go home.”
“Go to the Hill today. Get up and please get up in the face of some Congress people.”
Watch his call to action in the video below.
Booker’s comments sound eerily similar to what Senator Maxine Waters had to say at a small rally of her own.
Last month, Waters called for liberal supporters everywhere to harass members of Trump’s administration whenever they are seen in public outside the Wilshire Federal Building.
Hear what she had to say in the video below.
“For these members of his Cabinet who remain and try to defend him, they are not going to be able to go to a restaurant, they are not going to be able to stop at a gas station, they aren't going to be able to shop in a department store,” Waters said.
“The people are going to turn on them, they are going to protest, they are going to absolutely harass them,” she concluded.
Waters later responded to her comments on MSNBC. “I did not call for harm for anybody,” said Waters. “The president lied again.”
“But let’s not talk about that. Let’s focus on the children. That’s what this is all about,” she continued. “It is about the fact that children have been snatched from their parents’ arms.”
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi called Waters’ behavior “unacceptable” in a post on Twitter.
“They don’t really say I’m out of line. What they do is try to find a way talk about civility without attacking me or anybody else as the leader of the Democratic Party, I expect that she would do everything that she could to make sure nobody believes that Democrats are out here harassing anybody or causing any violence,” Waters said in regards to Nancy Pelosi’s denouncing of Water’s comments.
