NYTThere was a moment, Mayor Cory A. Booker of Newark said Friday, when he “thought we were not going to make it.”  “No air,” he said. “I just could not breathe. That’s when I thought, if I don’t find this woman in a few minutes, we’re both going to die.” Less than 12 hours earlier, Mr. Booker had run into a burning house on his street and carried a woman to safety, but only after arguing with a police detective assigned to protect him who tried to restrain him and even reached out and grabbed his belt. “It was just one of these moments in life when you just decide to jump in,” the mayor said. Mr. Booker has had other moments in life when he had jumped in, and he has not hesitated to talk about them — or, late Thursday night, to send out a message alerting his Twitter followers. There was the time when a teenager was hit by gunfire and died in his arms. There was the time when a drug dealer named T-Bone threatened to kill him. Later on, T-Bone broke into tears as he asked Mr. Booker for help in getting his life on track. And, as mayor, he is known, according to several people who have worked with him, for keeping an ear tuned to the police scanner in his security detail. Mr. Booker was treated for smoke inhalation after collapsing on the lawn outside in a coughing fit. He said at a news conference in front of the burned-out building in his Upper Clinton Hill neighborhood on Friday morning that he also had second-degree burns on his hands.

Hey Bloomberg where the fuck you at bro? Cory Booker is chasing down criminals and saving women from burning buildings like a goddam super hero. “The Bookman” or some shit. Meanwhile you’re yuckin it up on SNL and David Letterman having a grand old time with The Muppets. Spending your 50th year as Mayor worrying about people drinking soda and eating salt. Step your shit up, Bloombito! We can’t have freaking Newark outshining us. If he keeps this shit up Cory Booker will be President in 2020.
