'Ouch': Cory Booker Twice Forgets What State Sen. Ben Sasse Represents


Sens. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) and Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) shared a light-hearted moment when the former forgot which state his colleague represents.

During a Senate hearing on Wednesday, “I want to be respectful of my colleague, my friend, the senator from the great state of Oklahoma.”

“Ouch,” Sasse responded.

Booker tried again, “I’m sorry, sir, forgive me. Omaha.”

Sasse let out a laugh then noted, “Omaha’s not a state.”

Booker went to Stanford University and played for its college football team.

When Booker offered no rejoinder, Sasse said, “Sorry, Cory’s not as funny as I thought he would be there.”
