Booker: Black Lives Matter Protestors Anger Is ‘Legitimate’

Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) appeared on Saturday’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos” on ABC and discussed Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Bernie Sanders being forced off the stage by Black Lives Matter protestors on Saturday.

Booker acknowledged Sanders’s work in minority communities, but he said the protestors’ anger is a “legitimate degree of frustration” because the United States “has yet to confront persistent human rights issues.”

“Bernie has become somebody I have tremendous respect for, as an ally of mine addressing issues in the United States Senate that affect minority communities and he has a long record of civil rights. But the anger you saw there, from the protesters, this is a legitimate degree of frustration in this country, in a nation that has yet to confront what I believe are persistent civil rights issues, human rights issues.”
