  • ♪♪♪ >> Stephen: HEY, EVERYBODY,

  • WE'RE BACK WITH SENATOR CORY BOOKER.

  • WE WERE TOGETHER, I THINK, IN JUNE OF 2020, AND ON THAT NIGHT

  • TWO THINGS T HAD JUST HAPPENED.

  • I BELIEVE THAT THE -- IN LAFAYETTE SQUARE, NOW "BLACK

  • LIVES MATTER" PLAZA, TRUMP HAD SENT OUT FEDERAL MILITARY

  • TROOPS, FEDERAL LAW ENFORCEMENT TROOPS TO PEPPER SPRAY, TO GAS,

  • TO RUBBER BULLET PEACEFUL PROTESTERS SO HE COULD HAVE HIS

  • BIBLE-HOLDING MOMENT, AND I BELIEVE THAT WAS THE SAME NIGHT

  • THAT RAND PAUL PREVENTED THE PASSING OF THE ANTI-LYNCHING

  • LEGISLATION IN THE SENATE.

  • YOU WERE A LITTLE UPSET THAT NIGHT.

  • HOW DO YOU FEEL WHEN YOU SEE THE LACK OF PREPAREDNESS BY SECURITY

  • FORCES ON THE DAY OF THE PRESIDENT'S RALLY COMPARED TO

  • HOW THE "BLACK LIVES MATTER" PROTESTORS WERE TREATED ON THAT

  • DAY AND ON MANY DAYS IN MANY CITIES?

  • >> I MEAN, IT'S THE HURTFUL HYPOCRISY THAT THERE ARE MANY IN

  • THIS COUNTRY WHO KNOW VERY WELL THE DIFFERENT TREATMENT THAT IS

  • GIVEN TO DIFFERENT GROUPS IN OUR NATION, AND I KNOW THIS FROM

  • GOING TO UNIVERSITIES LIKE STANFORD AND YALE AND WATCHING A

  • DRUG CULTURE THAT EXISTS IN MOST COLLEGES WITH LITTLE TO NO

  • ACCOUNTABILITY, AND I WATCH WHAT HAPPENS IN THE COMMUNITY I LIVE

  • IN NOW.

  • WE HAVE TWO DIFFERENT JUSTICE SYSTEMS, WE HAVE TWO DIFFERENT

  • LEVELS OF TREATMENT AND, SO, YEA, IT HURTS AND IT, FRANKLY

  • ENRAGES ME.

  • AND AGAIN, WHAT MAKES ME MORE WORRIED IS NOT -- IS NOT SIMPLY

  • THAT THIS EXISTS, BUT THAT SO MANY PEOPLE ARE COMFORTABLE WITH

  • THIS.

  • IT DOESN'T DISTURB THEM AT THE CORE OF THEIR BEING THAT THEY

  • KNOW THAT MY JUSTICE AND YOUR JUSTICE ARE INTERWOVEN,

  • INTERCONNECTED, AND, THEREFORE, IF YOU ARE FACING THIS KIND OF

  • HYPOCRISY THAT BEARS UPON HOW YOU PROTEST OR HOW YOU DRIVE

  • YOUR CAR OR WHAT HAVE YOU, THEN I HAVE AN OBLIGATION, YOU AS MY

  • BROTHER OR SISTER, I HAVE AN OBLIGATION TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT

  • IT.

  • AND WE'RE FAILING IN THIS COUNTRY, AND IT'S A POVERTY OF

  • EMPATHY TO ALL WHO JOIN TOGETHER IN COMMON CAUSE TO DEAL WITH

  • WHAT I BELIEVE IS THIS PERSISTENT DISLOCATION THAT

  • EXISTS WITHIN CRIMINAL JUSTICE, ONE LAW ENFORCEMENT, WITHIN OUR

  • SOCIETY.

  • >> Stephen: BEFORE WE GO, I HAVE ONE COMPLETELY UNRELATED

  • QUESTION TO ANYTHING WE'VE TALKED ABOUT SO FAR, BUT IT IS

  • AN ENTERTAINMENT SHOW, AND I KNOW, BESIDES BEING A SENATOR,

  • YOU ARE A HUGE NERD.

  • ( LAUGHTER ) I ALREADY KNEW THAT YOU WERE

  • DATING ROUGH CZARO DAWSON -- ROW ROSARIO DAWSON.

  • WHAT IS IT LIKE DATING HER?

  • >> I DON'T CALL HER A DROPOUT TO HER FACE BECAUSE SHE ACTUALLY

  • TRAINS IN MARTIAL ARTS NOW.

  • >> Stephen: SURE.

  • IT IS PRETTY EXTRAORDINARY.

  • WE ALL ARE INCREDIBLY BLESSED, AND THAT IS ONE OF MY BLESSINGS,

  • AND, YOU KNOW, I PRAY ON THIS MARTIN LUTHER KING DAY THAT WE

  • ALL CAN BE ONE IN THE FORCE, SO TO SPEAK, AND, GOD WILLING, MAY

  • THAT FORCE BE ONE OF LOVE FOR ALL OF US.

  • >> STEPHEN: SENATOR CORY BOOKER, EVERYBODY!

  • WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK WITH A PERFORMANCE BY "INFINITY SONG."
