During the confirmation hearings for President Biden’s Supreme Court nominee, Democrat Sen. Cory Booker was among those gushing over Ketanji Brown Jackson, and it moved her to tears. Sen. Booker was also blasting Republicans for not respecting confirmation hearing “norms,” and The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway was among those who are rolling their eyes:
During Kavanaugh hearings, this grandstander broke every rule and norm around. https://t.co/PqXQlmZVah

Booker complaining about senators violating “norms” is some seriously rich projection. Why? Well, for starters…
didn’t he specifically brag about breaking the rules?

Yes, that’s exactly what Booker did during the Kavanaugh hearings:
Booker, who was about to run for president and who made a show of "knowingly violating the rules" during Kavanaugh hearing, now talking about norms.

Democrats such as Booker make it clearer by the day that they think (or at least hope) everybody is suffering from amnesia.
THIS GUY wants to give high-pitched weird emotional speeches about Senate/committee norms? pic.twitter.com/3rOhVsJSZL

Democrat Cory Booker, who threatened to violate Senate rules during the Kavanaugh confirmation ("I am Spartcus" moment), is now lecturing people about norms…

And yet Booker will no doubt agree with the Washington Post’s editorial today that laughably claimed Republicans have treated Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson worse than the Dems treated Judge Brett Kavanaugh. The gaslighting never stops.
