Before his show was eventually replaced by Tucker Carlson Tonight, longtime Fox News host Brit Hume filled in admirably for Greta Van Susteren on On the Record following her abrupt departure from the network.
Hume has been enjoying his retirement after his long career in broadcast journalism, but he has still been watching the current political scene closely. When he noticed that ultra-liberal U.S. Senator Cory Booker made a particularly bone-headed comment, Hume was quick to make his voice heard and set Booker straight.
Senator Booker was recently interviewed by reporter Dana Bash on CNN, and Dana asked him what his thoughts were about some Democrats’ desire to somehow start impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump, despite the fact that they are in the minority in the U.S. House of Representatives.
Senator Booker responded, “I just want to tell you, I’m not going to rush to impeachment. I think we need to deal with this in a very sobered way.” Some people, including conservatives, praised Booker for pouring cold water on his hot-headed and irrational Democratic colleagues.
