U.S. sen Cory Booker, D-N. J., left, was found guilty of using “overheated rhetoric”, according to U.S. Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas.

A prominent Senate Republicans had a simple, three-word response this week after Democratic colleague Cory Booker from New Jersey to a conference audience said that he had used to cry “tears of rage” over rhetoric, the trump management.

“Get a grip,” John Cornyn of Texas, wrote in a retweet of a news-story about Booker’s speech at the Netroots Nation conference in New Orleans on Friday.

For Cornyn, it was a continuation of the theme he introduced last month, after Booker asserted that these were against judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme court of the United States “complicit in evil.”

Cornyn said at the time: “My advice to some of our friends across the aisle are engaged in this kind of overheated rhetoric … my advice, get a grip. In the grip of the Washington Free Beacon,” reported.

“My advice to some of our friends across the aisle are engaged in this kind of overheated rhetoric … my advice is, get a grip. Get a grip.”

In addition to Booker, other speakers at the New Orleans event, including Democratic Sens. Elizabeth Warren in Massachusetts, and Kamala Harris, of California, and independent sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, the hill reported.

Political newcomers Cynthia Nixon and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez New York, is running for Governor and U.S. house seat, and there were, according to the report.

But it was Booker to draw the rail, which attracted the most attention with his comments about the Trump administration, and how, in his view, things are gone “is brutally wrong” in America since trump took office.

“I’m not a big believer in that, if America, if this country is not yet broken your heart, you know love is not enough. Because there are things that are brutally wrong in this country,” Booker said, according to the Washington Times.

Booker also complained that the have lost to a democratic party that seems, in his view, “our way.”

“I think a lot about the democratic party, the National-and, it seems, the connection to the people — where they are, what their experiences are, their struggles, their injuries and their pain — as we seem to have lost our way,” he said.

Cornyn, was focused in the meantime on other issues lately, such as the support of Kavanaugh’s nomination.

“Judge Kavanaugh is an exceptionally qualified lawyer, is said to be a fair and impartial arbiter of the law and not legislating from the bench,” Cornyn last month. “During his tenure, judge Kavanaugh has served with a high moral standard and showed a clear commitment to be faithful to the Interpretation of the Constitution.”
