Yesterday, Cory Booker made a complete jackass of himself by relentlessly grilling secretary of state nominee Mike Pompeo about his personal views on gay sex. Plenty of people rightly called out it out for what it was: desperate, shameless showboating.
But not Sally Kohn:

Because of course she’d lap that crap up.

Yeah totally, I was super worried about his ability to be Secretary of State depending on his answer to that question.

Yes because the questioning was so relevant to the job…smh

Why in the world is it an important conversation?
It literally has absolutely nothing to do with the job. NOTHING.
If he were hoping to become a gay porn star, ok maybe an important question.
Most everything else… NOPE. https://t.co/K4hUFc3Sfm

It is an absolutely worthless exchange that has no impact on his ability to perform the duties of SoS, and despite his personal opinions on the matter, he's a professional that has never discriminated based on his personal feelings

Sally’s already wrecked herself, but she still needs to check herself:
It’s important only in that it is used as a cudgel so that Booker can build his cred at the expense of religious freedoms.

Yeah, it’s really important to discriminate based on religious convictions. ????

What could possibly go wrong?
