Nine Photos of Cory Booker’s Imaginary Friend ‘T-Bone’!
Newark Mayor and candidate for U.S. Senate Cory Booker is being accused of making up a hoodlum pal named “T-Bone” so that he could give stories in speeches to prove his street cred. Noted right wing extremist website National Review had this to say:
Booker’s tales of his trials and travails on the streets of Newark, the city that twice elected him mayor, are familiar, and they have helped to breed an almost mythological aura around the Stanford, Oxford, and Yale graduate. He did, after all, rescue a woman from a burning building last year, sustaining burns in the process. But sources tell National Review Online that the central character in one of Booker’s oft-repeated stories — T-Bone, the drug pusher who the mayor has said threatened his life at one turn and sobbed on his shoulder the next — is a figment of his imagination, even though Booker has talked about him in highly emotional terms and in great detail.
How do they explain all these T-Bones, then?!?!?
