BOOKER GOES NUCLEAR: Cory Compares DHS Secretary to NAZIS, Trump to HITLER

BOOKER GOES NUCLEAR: Cory Compares DHS Secretary to NAZIS, Trump to HITLER

Booker's grilling of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen at his initial hearing of the Senate Judiciary Committee made him a frequent figure on television and major topic of discussion the next day. She said it was a meeting of 12 people and there was "crosstalk". "There was cross-talk", she explained at a congressional hearing, but she didn't "dispute the president was using tough language".

"What I was struck with frankly, as I'm sure you were as well, was just the general profanity used in the room by nearly everyone".

She was severely criticized for her statement by Senator Cory Booker (D-New Jersey).

Nielsen's comments came five days after the president ignited what Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) repeated verbatim while countering the president's characterization of African nations.

Listen to Booker's outrageous comments above.

Trump addressed the controversy in a vague tweet claiming he used "tough" language in immigration meeting, but did not say "s****hole countries".

The White House said Trump had no intention of apologizing.

"Tuesday, we had a president that I was proud to golf with", Graham said, "call my friend, who understood immigration had to be bipartisan".

There is internal debate in the West Wing over whether Trump said "shithole" or "shithouse".

Nielsen testified to the Senate Judiciary Committee that numerous people in the meeting used rough language, including the president, but she didn't specifically recall him using the word Sen. Trump called the comments "disgraceful".

Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin of IL, who confirmed Trump's language at last Thursday's meeting, indicated one sticking point in immigration negotiations was the president's insistence that Congress appropriate all the money he wants to build a border wall with Mexico this year - rather than spreading the appropriations and construction out over a longer period. Graham said he didn't know what happened on Thursday morning before the next immigration meeting.

During the hearing, Durbin grilled Nielsen on what transpired at the immigration meeting. You know what the President of the United States is saying, especially in heated exchanges, ' he said.

Asked about Kelly, the South Carolina Republican said the chief of staff is "a fine man, but he's part of the staff".

In an interview with CNN's Jake Tapper, Sen. I'm just not going to take it. "I'll just say, what Senator Durbin has portrayed is a misportrayal", Cotton told Little Rock radio station KARN on Tuesday. "They give license to bigotry and hate in our country".
