To the shock and dismay of almost no one, Sen. Corey Booker (D-NJ) has become the 487th Democrat to drop out of the 2020 presidential primaries. This of course leaves Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) as the only remaining Person of Color in the race.
Trust us, Corey, we will all miss you. A lot.
Who could forget Corey Booker’s big “Spartacus” moment during the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings? Booker declared that he was about to release “classified” information about Kavanaugh so the whole world could see just what a shady character Brett Kavanaugh was.
Booker was going to disseminate the TRUTH, and the consequences to him were unimportant. It was his “Spartacus moment.” Only it turned out that the “classified” info wasn’t classified at all, and there was no rule against him releasing the info – making it the most non-Spartacus “Spartacus moment” in the history of Spartacus moments.
Therefore, as this meme lets us know, Spartacus has now become “Departacus.” Goodbye, Corey Booker! We hardly knew you. And what Americans did know about you, frankly, was not that inspiring.
