Cory Booker’s failed “I am Spartacus” stunt at yesterday’s confirmation hearing for Brett Kavanaugh was so bad that the RNC immediately started running with it:
RNC just sent out a blast email dubbing Cory Booker "Spartacus of Newark"

Feminist and novelist Molly Jong-Fast reaction was swift and, well, predictable:
I always look to the RNC for the most racist hot takes. Bravo team of racist idiots, you’re racist. https://t.co/im9XsLq4us

It was inevitable, we suppose:

Booker refers to himself as Spartacus in an effort to portray himself as a brave victim, and you call people who quote him as racist. Please keep this up, Molly. It's entertaining to us and destructive to you. Seriously, please continue. https://t.co/kxEbeWd1QV

Corey Booker literally said he was having a Spartacus moment.
Corey Booker literally was the mayor of Newark.
"Racist!!!", she screams. https://t.co/umRP2Va04N

What's racist about calling Booker the Spartacus of Newark? https://t.co/VL1u84LLi1

It’s racist because the Left says it’s racist, darn it!
Racist like Cory, who called himself that. https://t.co/VxaogL6weZ

Racist? Cory Booker compared himself to Spartacus. Is he racist? Who is racist?🤔 https://t.co/Br4dbZKZ3o

The guy referred to himself as Spartacus. This is the wildest claim of racism since the last one I saw on Twitter five minutes ago. https://t.co/4MQudCx7v4

"I can't believe how racist Booker is for calling himself Spartacus" isn't the intellectual virtue signaling you think it is. https://t.co/CYQeLadIDK

The Left has so overused “racist” that the word now produces a giant collective YAWN.
Which is a shame because there are still actual racists but we now no longer pay attention…

Is this your entry in a "how many times you can use the word 'racist' in one tweet" contest? So disappointed. You only made it to 3.
