As Mayor of Newark, Cory Booker spent a lot of time promoting himself on social media. The city is a trainwreck and Booker is running for president.
Because that's what you do when you run a failed city, you run for president. Just ask Booker or Buttigieg.
And you know that there won't be any hard questions once your city has a lead crisis.
Newark officials will hand out bottled water to residents starting Monday amid concerns over lead levels in water.
Mayor Ras Baraka (D) and New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy (D) said in a joint statement Sunday that clean drinking water is critically important and called on the federal government to assist their efforts.
Ras Baraka is the son of racist black nationalist poet Amiri Baraka. A former Nation of Islam member, Baraka was named the Poet Laureate of New Jersey despite insane racist rants like this.
“I got the extermination blues, jew-boys. I got the Hitler syndrome figured... So come for the rent, jewboys, or come ask me for a book, or sit in the courts handing down your judgements still I got something for you, gonna give it to my brothers, so they'll know what your whole story is, then one day, jewboys, we all, even my wig wearing mother gonna put it on you all at once.”
"We are all beautiful (except white people, they are full of, and made of shit)," Amiri Baraka wrote. "Come up, black dada / nihilismus. Rape the white girls. Rape / their fathers. Cut the mothers' throats," he wrote.
Baraka was widely celebrated by lefties. And still is.
Also Newark is a failed city. And politicians from there are absolutely entitled to run for president.
