Ok.I get why an animal rights activist would pretend to be a big agra owner to clown Maria the B on Fox but why TF would anyone impersonate Cory?

Am I missing something here?

At least it wasn't Eric Idle in blackface.

/ More than ever should've happened.

In other news Cory Booker impersonators are a thing.

well it was a radio interview, and even that wasn't recorded in a face-to-race studio (BBC certainly has stateside correspondents but, hey, COVID)....

so if the dude sounded like booker, and they believed it was a legitimate connection (in this zoom day and age he was probably expected to call in from his home office), an easy mistake to make.

frankly it's surprising this hasn't happened MORE often in the last 12 months.

Isn't the actual Cory Booker just a Cory Booker impersonator?

/he doesn't seem rather genuine

They all look alike, especially on radio.

Bookermania.

Not the real Cory Booker but an amazing simulation.

That's not Cory Booker. That's Rosario Dawson. She was on SpongeBob SquarePants.

AtM is not strictly a deal breaker, apparently.

Saying a "Cory Booker Impersonator" implies there is a small industry or Cory Booker Impersonators.  Just like there are Elvis Impersonators.  There isn't, this was just a guy who impersonated him one time on a radio show.
 
2021-03-03 5:56:43 AM  
Are you saying all BBCs look the same?
 
2021-03-03 6:47:56 AM  
I don't care how many times he runs, how immitatable he may be, how many impersonators he may inspire, how gorgeous rosario is, how much we all liked robot chicken, sin city, the mandalorian.....

THIS is the United States of America, we will NOT be electing an unmarried Vegan President anytime soon.

Former US goalie Tim Howard could probably do a passable Booker impersonation.

Wow, Porn Hub is really running out of ideas. That doesn't sound like something that even I would want to fap to.
