Sen. Cory Booker found himself the target of an ugly antigay smear over the weekend. And it seems to only be getting uglier.
It all started when anonymous person claiming to be a “liberal, gay man” on Twitter claimed Booker sexually assaulted him in a workplace bathroom in 2014, shortly after Booker was elected to the US Senate.
“Being a hero is a serious turn-on,” Booker allegedly told the man before groping him. “The Senate appreciates fine citizens like you. Especially this senator.”
The accusations were so over-the-top and ridiculous that not even FOX News’ resident homophobe Laura Ingraham believes them. On her program last night, she said, “I don’t like it when people do this kind of stuff. I believe it is a smear.”
But that hasn’t stopped racist homophobes from taking aim at Booker on social media, creating the disparaging hashtag #BathroomBooker and directing all sorts of awful slurs at the 49-year-old senator, including calling him a “homosexual pervert,” a “degenerate bathhouse f*g”, and a “thug/f*g”, among other things.
First, came the tweets…
He’s a homosexual pervert hiding behind women groping because he likes little boys and used that as an excuse to hide he a stoned cold child molester sucking little boy’s pee-pee’https://t.co/zqLBmCQd7C-whore-county
