ALMOST LIVE: Watch Cory Gardner Get Pwned in Boulder

MONDAY UPDATE: The Boulder Daily Camera reports:

According to the College Republicans at CU Boulder Facebook page, the club cancelled its usual Thursday night meeting to host an unnamed “special guest speaker” on Friday…

A club member who asked not to be identified, said Gardner’s identity was withheld to keep the event from becoming a media circus or a spectacle for activists. Events featuring conservative speakers at CU have often resulted in large-scale protests, and the club was looking to foster as calm, respectful and non-contentious an environment as it could, the member said.

UPDATE: More footage from inside the event:

Stop whatever you’re doing this snowy weekend and watch this remarkable clip of video forwarded to us by the good folks at Indivisible Front Range Resistance from an unannounced appearance yesterday evening by Sen. Cory Gardner to speak to University of Colorado College Republicans in Boulder. Though reportedly only listed as an anonymous “guest speaker” on the event schedule, word got out in time for one of Gardner’s least favorite things to arrive on scene: a constituent with a smartphone.

We don’t want to take away from the atmospherics of the questioning and especially the by-now trademark “Cory Shuffle” hall chase, so watch the whole video in which Gardner stoically evades questions about President Donald Trump’s controversial immigration policy advisor Stephen Miller, says again that he hasn’t decided whether Trump’s national emergency declaration (and gets walloped for it), then starts to offer some kind of defense of Trump politically after it’s suggested that Colorado has “roundly rejected” the President (and gets walloped for that).

Unfortunately that last exchange doesn’t have a satisfying end as Gardner escapes out the door–but here’s a minute and a half of exactly the Cory Gardner that Democrats love to hate. And for America’s most vulnerable 2020 Senator, it’s not a good look.

    A truly consistent performance by the Cowardly Con Man.

    Cory, you really do define a mealy-mouthed swindler. I should have thought that over all the years since I personally watched you be the same weasel I see you still are, you might have grown a conscience, and some cajones. I guess not.

    These phone ambushers need to understand that while phones capture video fairly well, they suck at capturing sound.

    If you are going to make a habit of phone ambushes, you need to buy better sound recording equipment.

    If Gardner doesn't consider the 2018 rebuke of the republican party in Colorado as roundly rejecting Trump I'm sure he'll think differently after 2020 when he's a victim of the complete annihilation of the party.

    Cory is a fucking joke.  And he and his ilk have turned to fascism.  Or are enabling it.

    It’s a little hard to understand, but seems like the teacher was asking how Gardner could justify endorsing $rump for (treason, criminal behavior, unhinged rants, pick one). 

    And Gardner s reply was that the Dems are turning to socialism…?!
