CLARK – U.S. Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) slammed Newark Mayor Cory Booker this afternoon at a rally in support of GOP U.S. Senate candidate Steve Lonegan.
“Do you want a senator with an imaginary friend?” Paul asked an outdoor crowd at Gran Centurions.
The remark was a reference to reports of Booker embellishing a meeting with a street character named T-Bone, which Booker reiterated actually happened.
Paul suggested Booker is not the only one with an imaginary friend, recalling a character in a book by President Barack Obama that people later identified as a composite of women.
“I heard they are dating,” Paul said, referring to T-Bone and the composite character.
“One in three people in Newark are living in poverty and Cory Booker has an imaginary friend named T-Bone,” Paul told an enthusiastic crowd of Lonegan supporters.
