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.

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.

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.
