Democratic presidential candidate Senator Cory Booker said in a late night talk show that his testosterone sometimes leads him to want to beat President Trump – whom he is an & # 39; elderly & # 39; called. out-of-shape man & # 39; – but urged Americans to appeal to a higher nature.
Booker, 50, a New Jersey senator and former college football player, made the statement about & # 39;Late Night with Seth Meyers& # 39; when asked about his own calls to & # 39; social grace & # 39 ;.
Booker told the story of an interaction with an Iowa voter.
& # 39; This guy sees me, a former tight end of Stanford University – he's a big guy. He puts his arm around me and he says: & Dude, I want you to hit Donald Trump in the face, & # 39; & # 39; said Booker. & # 39; And I stop my tracks and I go: Guy, that's a crime, man.
New Jersey senator Cory Booker, a presidential candidate, said his testosterone makes him want to beat President Trump. But she warned against the urge to go after a man that he was a & # 39; physically weak copy & # 39; called, and told a voter that the president hit a crime
Booker continued: & # 39; Donald Trump is a man who, you understand, hurts you. And my testosterone makes me want to hit him, which would be bad for this older, out-of-shape man he is if I did that. & # 39;
Booker then called Trump: & # 39; This physically weak copy & # 39 ;, before insisting on restraint.
& # 39; But do you see what I am talking about here? That's his tactic and you don't beat a bully like him, fight him on his tactics, on his terms, using his turf. He is the body shamer, he is the man trying to drag people down the gutter, & Booker said.

Booker referred to Trump as & # 39; physically weak & # 39; even when he insisted to take the main road
"My testosterone makes me want to hit him, which would be bad for this older, out-of-shape man he is if I did," Booker said
Booker called on President Trump for & # 39; body shaming & # 39; from other people
Trump has praised the heat in the past for criticizing the appearance of others. Hillary Clinton called him out during a presidential debate because he was a former Miss Universe Alicia Machado & Miss Housekeeping & # 39; and & # 39; Miss Piggy & # 39; called. Trump responded after the debate: & # 39; & # 39; She was the winner and, you know, she arrived enormously and it was really a problem. & # 39;
& # 39; This is a moral moment in America, & # 39; Booker told Meyers. & # 39; And for me, what we need from our next leader, especially in this time of moral vandalism that we are currently in, is that we need a leader who is not going to call us the worst of who we are, but calls us to the best of who we are. & # 39;
& # 39; And we must be as a party, at this moral moment we must talk about what we are necessarily against, but what we are for, & # 39; he said.
Said Booker: & # 39; We will not defeat Donald Trump by trying to be more like him, but by showing that we are not like him. We are not morally weak, we are not weak mentally, we are a strong nation. & # 39;
