Stick a fork in him: Cory Booker gets busted for lying about imaginary thug friend T-Bone

An imaginary friend, that is.

Booker’s gone and gotten himself busted on a longtime lie, thanks to some intrepid reporting by NRO’s Eliana Johnson:

Rut-roh:

Booker’s tales of his trials and travails on the streets of Newark, the city that twice elected him mayor, are familiar, and they have helped to breed an almost mythological aura around the Stanford, Oxford, and Yale graduate. He did, after all, rescue a woman from a burning building last year, sustaining burns in the process. But sources tell National Review Online that the central character in one of Booker’s oft-repeated stories — T-Bone, the drug pusher who the mayor has said threatened his life at one turn and sobbed on his shoulder the next — is a figment of his imagination, even though Booker has talked about him in highly emotional terms and in great detail.

So in order to make stuff change, you have to make stuff up.

Well done, Cory Booker! (See what we did there?)

It’s a perfect plan!

Hot stuff.

Teehee!

Uh, yes please.

Snort.

Good question. Here’s another one:

What are Gregory and the media gonna do now?

Guess it’s just a “local story”.

Funny, that.

Update:

Oh. Yeah. And it’s — as T-Bone himself might say — the shizz:

Check out the rest of T-Bone’s tweets, playas.

    In a related story, T-Bone has eloped with Obama’s New York girlfriend. Julia was maid of honor and Harvey was the best rabbit.

    Richard Pryor’s old wino character, Redbone, probably is closer to someone who really existed than Cory’s imaginary drug-dealer friend.

    Anyone hear from Dingy Harry’s imaginary friend “Tommy” lately?

      Do you mean “Mudbone”?

    Between Obama’s imaginary “composite” college girlfriend, Manti Te’o’s imaginary girlfriend and Corey Booker’s imaginary friend, are there no real people who will befriend these poor demented souls?

    T-Bone is NOT imaginary – he’s on Twitter @TBoneBooker Bwahaha I love Twitter.

  • SpaceRacer423

    T-Bone isn’t imaginary, he’s simply “composite.”

  • SpaceRacer423

    T-Bone has to be real,
    he voted for Obama in the last election……..twice.

  • Jake Bradford

    He has a long way to go to catch up with Obama’s lies. Obama hasn’t been honest about his past, his agenda, even his own name is a lie.

    “Stick a fork in it”, “T-bone”, dammit, Twitchy, you’re giving me a craving!

    I’ll have mine medium rare, please.

  • Suzyqpie

    The people who support him will have no concern about this incident. Just like Liz Warren.

  • RockThisTown

    Cory Booker can see T-Bone from his house . . .

  • TJ

    He still will win. The old saying he could have a live boy, dead girl and now a complete made up person life story. What is the name of his Republican challenger and how much help does he have from the RNC. Christie will win the governorship and Booker will be the Senator. He will be the second Black senator and only “approved” black one.

      Steve Lonegan. Good guy. Hasn’t got a chance.
      *sigh*

    Pretty sure T-Bone is totally legit, I last saw him walking down the street with Carlos Danger and sobbing uncontrollably on his shoulder.

    They just shut down the t-bone twitter

    I totally thought of T-Bone from Clifford (thanks kids) when I heard this story. I even imagine his raspy voice doing all the @TBoneBooker tweets.

    Hey, didn’t Cory Booker put in a recommendation for a promotion for Richard Windsor at the EPA?

    For years and years, everyone thought Big Bird was crazy whenever he brought up Mr. Snuffleupagus. They teased him about it so cruelly. That was before the real truth came out.

    We believe you, Cory!

    T-Bone pet name for his “playmate”?

  • surfcitysocal

    No matter how self-aggrandizing and fictional this is–which seems to be
    the modus operandi for progressive statists–I doubt it will have any
    effect on his up-and-coming-rock-star status in the Democrat party.

    • fireandreamitchell

      Sadly, you are right.

    • tops116

      Hell, after Obama, Democrats consider stuff like that a requirement.

    Omar Little wished he was T-Bone.

  • praymorenow1

    He only did what Obama did……composite friend, composite girlfriend, composite college events, sort of real/sort of fake events in ones life…..just like Obama’s two best selling books.
    It is amusing to see Democrats attack another Democrat who happens to be black and a high achiever and a real life hero. Nice…..Dems eating up other Dems….

    I wonder if Bookers composite T-Bone ever dated any of Obama’s composite ex-love interests……(I did not use the term girlfriend intentionally..)

  • Terry

    Isn’t “T-Bone” just a tad racist?
