With 24 Democrats currently running for president, it’s getting hard for some to stand out. Now that the first round of Democratic debates are over, it has become clear which candidates are getting desperate to remain relevant.
Democratic New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker is currently polling at less than 2 percent in most polls — and he apparently thinks committing a felony is a good way to help his lackluster camapign.
During an interview Monday night with NBC’s Seth Myers, Booker attacked President Donald Trump with several personal insults and threatened to physically assault him.
It is a felony to threaten and/or attack the president of the United States.
Booker began his threatening diatribe by claiming that a former football player approached him recently while he was campaigning in Iowa.
“He’s a big guy, he puts his arm around me and goes, ‘Dude, I want you to punch Donald Trump in the face,’” Booker said. “And I stop in my tracks and I go, ‘Dude, that’s a felony, man.’”
That’s when Booker insulted Trump’s physique and said he wanted to assault the president:
“And, you know…Donald Trump is a guy who you understand he hurts you, and my testosterone sometimes makes me want to feel like punching him, which would be bad for this elderly out-of-shape man that he is if I did that. This physically weak specimen…”
This is the second time in less than a month that Booker has likely committed a felony.
On July 5, Booker illegally escorted five migrants across the border from Mexico into the United States.
Booker broke the law and could face the possibility of arrest for his brazen act — which was undoubtedly a political stunt aimed at helping his failing campaign.
Booker crossed the El Paso, Texas, port of entry into Ciudad Juarez with immigrant rights attorneys and advocates to help five women get admitted into the U.S. after they had been sent back to Mexico.
Aside from Booker likely committing two felonies in less than a month, he’s not the only 2020 Democratic presidential candidate who has threatened Trump with physical violence.
During an interview earlier this month with CNN’s Chris Cuomo, former Vice President Joe Biden compared Trump to a bully and said he wanted to “smack” him in the mouth.
“Sure it worries me, in the sense that I’m looking forward to this, man. You walk behind me in a debate, come here, man. Don’t you think — you know me too well. The idea that I’d be intimidated by Donald Trump? He’s the bully that I knew my whole life,” Biden stated.
“He’s the bully that I’ve always stood up to. He’s the bully that used to make fun when I was a kid that I stutter, and I’d smack them in the mouth,” the former vice president added.
Biden continued, “But I think the American people want a president who has some dignity, who has a value set, who is actually trying to restore the soul of this country so when they turn on the television they look up and their kids say, ‘I want to be like that guy or that woman.’”
Joe Biden says he's looking forward to a chance to "slap @realDonaldTrump in the mouth" during a presidential debate.

Nice going, Booker and Biden.
Threatening the president of the United States is a felony.
But don’t hold your breathe waiting for the media to hold either Democrat accountable for their disturbing actions.
