“My testosterone, sometimes, makes me want to feel like punching” President Donald Trump, Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) said Monday in an interview on NBC’s “Late Night With Seth Meyers.”

Sen. Booker added that punching Trump “would be bad for this elderly, out-of-shape man”:

“Look, I was running on a Iowa stage and we were so psyched, hundreds of people there, and I’m about to jump up, and this guy sees me – he’s a former tight end for San Fran University, he’s a big guy – and he goes, “Dude, I want you to punch Donald Trump in the face.’

“And, I stop in my tracks and I go, ‘Dude, that’s a felony, man.’

“And, you know, Donald Trump is a guy who – you understand, he hurts you – and my testosterone, sometimes, makes me want to feel like punching him…which would be bad for this elderly, out-of-shape man that he is, if I did that.”

Booker went on to say that “you don’t beat a bully like him” by fighting on his terms:

“But, that’s his tactics. And, you don’t beat a bully like him fighting him on his tactics, on his terms, using his turf. He’s the body-shamer, he’s the guy that tries to drag people in the gutter.

“This is a moral moment in America. And, to me, what we need in our next leader, especially after the time of moral vandalism that we’re in right now, is we need a leader who’s not going to call us to the worst of what we are, but call us to the best of what we are.”
