EXCERPT:

BOOKER: "Yeah, I mean, look, I was running on the Iowa stage, and we were so psyched, hundreds of people there, I’m about to jump up, and this guy sees me, a former tight end for Stanford University. He’s a big guy, he puts his arm around me and 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.'
(Laughter)
And, you know, this — 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.
(Laughter)
(Cheering and Applause)
Physically — physically weak specimen, a physically weak specimen. But you see what I’m talking there? Even — 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 shows — tries to drag people in the gutter. And I — and this is a moral moment in America. And to me, what we need from our next leader, especially after the time of moral vandalism that we’re in right now, is we need a leader that’s not going to call us to the worst of who we are, but call us the best of who we are.”
