"It is the first responsibility of every citizen to question authority."— Cory Booker (@CoryBooker) January 23, 2017
He also tweeted an authentic quote by Leonardo da Vinci: “Nothing strengthens authority so much as silence.” Leonardo da Vinci.” This was most likely in reference to the riots the night before the inauguration and the Women’s March protests Saturday.
