LMAF......!!! As a politician, I believe that he needs to be reminded that there is something called First Amendment. Unless of course, the U.S. becomes red....wait! didn't the Empire State celebrate China's 60th regime anniversary?

That is so ridiculous!

Conan's response to Booker's video was even funnier!
(Hope I posted this right...)

It was a joke, but I can see why Booker was upset. Besides, I think it is a Jersey mentality, to get all tied up in a knot, when someone makes fun of your town or the State.

Haha, I'm liking this back-and-forth. I bet Booker will end up on Conan's show eventually and they'll "make up and be friends" or something.

Cory Booker needs to stop wasting time on the interwebz and concentrate on running Newark. This guy has a corybooker.com website, a corybooker blog, a corybooker Twitter, a corybooker Facebook, a corybooker YouTube channel...and they are ALL updated regularly. In fact, he twitters (tweets?) constantly!

I wouldn't be surprised if he had a City Data account. I bet he's secretly a regular here, and we don't know it.

Seriously, Cory Booker...you are the Mayor of Newark...not some nobody sitting in the middle of a cubicle farm. You shouldn't be wasting all this time on the internet. Get back to work, slacker!

funny, i was just about to say that the guy should worry about his job and not making stupid videos.

i dont have sound here but from seeing the video it looks like the guy is desperate for attention.
