Cory Booker was interrupted by protestors during Night 2 of the 2020 Democratic Debates on Wednesday night (July 31).

The chant was actually directed at New York City major Bill de Blasio.

The protestors were referring to Officer Daniel Pantaleo who is the New York Police Department cop who engaged in the fatal struggle with Eric Garner, who died in 2014 while in a chokehold. His death prompted protests for years to come, and is one of the several police killings protested by the Black Lives Matter movement. Earlier in July, it was announced the officers involved in his death would not face any federal charges.

The mayor has been strongly criticized for not firing the officers involved.

Cory Booker Says His 'Testosterone Sometimes' Makes Him Want To Punch Trump - Watch Here!

Senator Cory Booker took some personal shots at President Trump while discussing civility in politics during his Monday night (July 22) appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers.

The 50-year-old New Jersey Senator and presidential candidate recalled a campaign event in Iowa where a supporter told him to “punch Donald Trump in the face” and his reaction was, “Dude, that’s a felony man.”

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,” Cory laughed. “Physically weak specimen, but do you see what I’m talking about here? That’s his tactics and you don’t beat a bully like him, fighting him on his tactics, on his terms, using his turf. He’s the body shamer, he’s the guy that tries to drag people in the gutter.”

Booker finished his explanation by saying America needs a leader to “call us to the best of who we are.”

Cory Booker also talked about his viral photo meme from the democratic debate, explains his beef with Fred Savage and recounts his visit to San Diego Comic-Con – Watch more after the cut!

Who Is Cory Booker Dating & Is He Married?

Senator Cory Booker is one of the many Democratic hopefuls in the running to become the next President of the United States in 2020.

However, there’s one topic in particular that many people are wondering about ever since he announced that he’s running back in February: is Cory Booker in a relationship? Is he married?

The answer is that the 50-year-old New Jersey Senator is not married, which would make him the first bachelor president if elected to office.

However, he is in a serious relationship with Luke Cage actress Rosario Dawson.

The two reportedly met at a political fundraiser for Ben Jealous, former president of the NAACP. Rosario confirmed their relationship in March.

“She is an incredible girlfriend. I’m very lucky to be in a relationship with someone who is just so incredibly special, but more importantly has taught me so much in a very short period of time,” Cory said of Rosario.
