Step aside John F. Kennedy and
Marilyn Monroe Jackie O – shit, OK – JKF and Marilyn and Jackie O, there’s a new celebrity couple on the political scene. Sadly it’s not a reuniting of the ghost of Tom Hayden and 1980s Jane Fonda in full-on spandex and double leg warmer workout video mode. It’s Rosario Dawson and Cory Booker, y’all! After a couple months of speculation, Rosario has confirmed that she’s sprung on US Senator and 2020 vegan presidential candidate Cory.
TMZ caught up with Roasario in a DC airport, where she engaged in a lovely little stroll with the camera man, who poked around her personal life. At first Rosario was acting the coy cat, explaining that she spends a lot of time in DC because her organization Voto Latino has an office there. It took a quick minute to get there, but soon Rosario flashed her Cory Booker button and admitted that she is the boo that Cory alluded to dating on The Breakfast Club radio show last month. Said Rosario:
He’s an amazing human being… so far so wonderful. He’s a wonderful human being. I am just grateful to be with someone that I respect and love and admire so much who is so brilliant and kind and caring and loving.
Well, day-am, Rosario! That’s a HARD sell. Either she’s the new poster child for what being un-vaccinated against the dangers of dickmatization can do to the human brain, or she is pedaling hard uphill against those “bearding for Cory” rumors. Either way, she is making us mere mortals in relationships look bad for only focusing on the dirty balled-up socks our partners leave around the house instead of focusing on their “brilliant, kind, caring, loving and wonderful” ways. Excuse me while I retch into my nearest houseplant (sorry, Figaro the Fiddle-leaf Fig).
I don’t know what political game Cory is playing, but if he was hoping for Hillary Clinton‘s endorsement, THAT possibility just bit the dust majorly, as Rosario went into full on attack mode against Hil in 2016 by endorsing Bernie Sanders. I’m no political strategist, but could Rosario’s allegiance to Cory take away that little edge she helped give Bernie the last time around? Or is this Ashton Kutcher‘s resurrection of PUNK’D, and at the last minute, Rosario is going to say “Psyche!” before turning around to make out with Bernie in front of Cory? Will Bernie then start making out with Cory while his other arm is still around Rosario’s waist and announce a Sanders/Booker 2020 pairing? Finally there is some political intrigue to shake us out of the horrors and whores of the last three years! I say bring it on!
Here’s the video of Rosario declaring her love for Cory Booker:
