Hey, have you seen New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’s goofy web video with Newark hero-Mayor Cory Booker? Have you? Have you? Well, if you’re famous enough, Mr. Christie has probably tried to pitch it to you over Twitter.
Last night, the official account of the New Jersey Governor tweeted at Saturday Night Live and Seth Meyers, suggesting Mr. Christie and Mr. Booker would be good for a sketch on the show. Cute. But a quick glance further into his feed shows clear and troubling signs of desperation.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg went on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night, to discuss, among other things, his current occupation.
“It’s the best job in the world, you get a chance to change the world,” Mr. Bloomberg told Jimmy Fallon. “And I get a chance to be invited to be here with you. I got the chance to kiss Lady Gaga on New Year’s Eve.”
“I don’t think my girlfriend was happy about that,” he quipped afterwards.
Ray Kelly ordered NYPD officers not to mess with journalists.
Occupy Wall Street protests around the country have cost city governments about $13 million.
Congressman Jerry Nadler on “the most stupid bill I’ve ever seen.”
Gwyneth Paltrow sat next to Jimmy Fallon, with Anna Wintour and Pharrell Williams sitting nearby. But tucked into the back of Harvey Weinstein’s basement last night was one face that hadn’t been seen with President Obama at any of his New York fund-raisers so far this year: Governor Andrew Cuomo.
“I’m lucky enough, and he knows it’s true, to say that I was one of Governor Cuomo’s earliest supporters,” Weinstein told the crowd.
“Yes, yes,” Cuomo called out. “Angel investor.”
“You are an angel,” Weinstein gushed.
“That’s the first time anybody’s ever called him that,” Obama said.
