Booker was scheduled to address the Florida delegation at the DNC Tuesday morning. When he got out of the car upon arriving for that speech, he tripped on the curb and injured his leg, CBS 2 reports.
He proceeded to address the Florida delegation standing on one leg.
“I am in throbbing pain right now, Booker told CBS 2′s Marcia Kramer after an event this morning. “I am desperate to get to an ice bag, and my staff has been really good to me, so I am going to go back and do that,” Booker told Kramer.
He is still expected to make his speech tonight.
More irony: A guy on one leg giving a speech for an administration on its last legs.
