ANNALS OF LEFTIST AUTOPHAGY: Cory Booker ‘taken aback’ by Mike Bloomberg’s ‘well spoken’ comment.

“I probably shouldn’t have used the word, but I could just tell you he is a friend of mine,” Bloomberg told reporters in Georgia later Friday. “He is a Rhodes Scholar, which is much more impressive than my academic background. I envy him.”

Booker criticized Bloomberg’s use of the phrase — which is considered condescending and offensive by many African American — after he said it during a “CBS This Morning” interview earlier Friday.

“I was taken aback by it,” Booker, 50, told SiriusXM radio show Signal Boost, adding he hoped the multi-billionaire now understood why the comment was hurtful.

“It’s sort of stunning at times that we are still revisiting these sort of tired, you know, tropes or the language we have out there that folks, I don’t think they understand, the fact that they don’t understand is problematic,” he said.

Yet another Democrat declares his party to be a cesspit of racism.
