Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) had an angry meltdown at a hearing with Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kristjen Nielsen this week, claiming he was in “tears of rage” over Trump’s alleged 's@#$thole' comment.

"I hurt," Booker said. "When Dick Durbin called me I had tears of rage when I heard about his experience in this meeting, and for you not to feel that hurt and that pain and to dismiss some of the questions of my colleagues … when tens of millions of Americas are hurting right now because of what they're worried about what happened in the White House, that's unacceptable to me!"

Booker's comments continued on for several minutes, with the Senator becoming more and more animated in his gestures. His outburtst was as hilarious as it was bizarre and disturbing.
