Cory Booker tries to clear up his position on Bain attacks
So, this is not an interview. This is an opportunity for Cory Booker to do some major damage control.

Cory Booker continued his quest to run screaming away from the apparently too candid comments he made on Meet the Press on Sunday. Despite attempts earlier today to #FreeCoryBooker from those trying to force him to apologize, Booker went on the Rachel Maddow show to do everything he could to walk back what he said. Cue the mockery.
Boy, Cory Booker is really trying to worm his way out of his faux pas yesterday. #rachelmaddow

Excuse me Mr. Booker – how were you "taken out of context?" They took your quote word for word from MTP. No manipulation necessary.

Sorry, but this is awfully slippery. Booker specifically stood up for Bain yesterday, by name.

I know this is difficult, but Mayor Booker, you need to take the focus off yourself. You are sounding self-centered. #Maddow

Some serious Cory Booker hate on the airwaves tonight. I thought it was taboo to attack a nationally prominent black man in public office?

This basically sums up Cory Booker's message on Maddow tonight: http://t.co/BmWfLPLd
