Cory Booker puts his Division 1 football skills to use in Washington Post TikTok

Marianne Dodson

You've probably heard Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) is a vegan — but did you know he's also a former Division 1 football player?

If you need a refresher, look no further than The Washington Post's most recent presidential candidate TikTok, which features a laser-focused Booker running to make his flight to Iowa. Booker slams into an unsuspecting passerby (played by Post TikTok creator Dave Jorgenson) in the process, knocking him to the ground and reminding everyone that, despite his dietary preferences, Booker's got some meat on his bones.



Bold of Jorgenson to agree to being pummeled by Booker, seeing as the presidential candidate played tight end at Stanford University in 1989 and 1990. The TikTok creator did follow up acknowledging Booker's former athletic career — hopefully he'll book it out of there faster in the future.
