Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) essentially admitted that the fit he threw in front of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was a political stunt in an appearance on CNN on Wednesday.

After CNN’s Jake Tapper read a repudiation of Booker’s conduct to the senator from the Republican National Committee (RNC), the senator reacted with uncaged joy.

“I’m glad they’re finally attacking me,” he said, pointing out that Republicans had attacked other high-profile senators.

The senator then defended his behavior, saying, “My conduct was on-point.” Booker rejected the RNC’s criticism, calling it partisan attacks from “political operatives.”

In an email on Wednesday, the RNC accused Booker of “mansplaining” to Nielsen at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Tuesday, according to The Hill. The Democratic senator attacked Nielsen for her inability to recall President Trump’s exact wording in an Oval Office meeting last week.
