WATCH: Cory Booker SHUTS DOWN Heckler, Marries First Gay Couple In New Jersey

Cory Booker conducted his first ever wedding — gay or otherwise — Monday, as he had refused to officiate any until gay marriage was legalized. The first couple Booker married, and the first to tie the knot as same-sex marriage became legal in New Jersey, were the Newark mayor cum U.S. Senator’s old friends Joseph Panessidi and Orville Bell.

Of course, someone had be the asshole when Booker asked if there was anyone present who would object to their union. Speaking now rather than forever holding his peace, or any sense of decorum, said asshole began yelling about how the marriage was “unlawful in the eyes of god” and blah-blah-no-one-gives-a-crap. Booker, after having the man removed “and not hearing any substantive, worthy objections,” proceeded with the vows. He even got a hug in with the new grooms.

Meanwhile, if Hillary’s not running in 2016: Cory Booker.

      How could they possibly throw out that poor Christian for simply exercising his god given first amendment rights of free speech. Jesus! He was so victimized. Fox News should have him shout that from the mountain. Should increase donations to the FRC.

      What a true A-hose to disrupt someone else’s wedding… Best wishes to the couple. Mr. Booker all the best wishes in the Senate.

      @zenileon: My original reply to you is awaiting moderation for some reason, but ignore it if it does go through as I misunderstood your question. lol I have no idea if the man holding the mic is gay or not. I don’t know who he is.
