WNYW Airs Tweet From Newark Mayor Cory Booker About Relationship with President Obama

By Jerry Barmash Comment

The New York Post today had an exclusive about a strained relationship between  Newark Mayor Cory Booker and President Obama.

In the story, Booker, who was campaigning for a spot in a re-elected President Obama’s Cabinet, lost out after speaking his mind in a TV appearance last month.

“He’s dead to us,” one ranking administration official told the Post.

The story was discussed on this morning’s Good Day New York. Moments later, Booker tweeted co-anchor Rosanna Scotto in reaction to the piece, which she read on the air. (See clip after the jump)

“Rosanna, running to meeting. Those ‘unnamed source’ comments ring pretty hollow.  1. I’m hosting an event with president and 1st lady on 14 I’m running around the country for the DNC still doing stumping for them. I’m the Co-Chair of the Convention’s platform committee… & more No tension that I felt. I am a proud and continued Obama supporter.”
