Sen. Cory Booker says he appreciated Joe Biden apologizing for his comments praising his work with segregationists. Read Sen. Booker's remarks below:
SEN. CORY BOOKER: I’m frustrated that it took so long. But I’m grateful for him doing and we should all, I mean, we can’t have a culture where we can't have a leader that can’t stand up and say I’ve been imperfect and I made mistakes and I apologize...
I’m sorry we had to go through all of this, I’m sorry he tried to shift blame to me. But I’m grateful. I want to say thank you. We need to extend grace to each other. I’m never going to not accept somebody I respect and admire that has come to terms with this and apologized.
I was very hurt by what he said and even more hurt that he would try to, I almost felt attacked when he said that I should be apologizing to him.
