If you’re a citizen of the Internet, you’re familiar with Cory Booker — Newark’s take-charge mayor, famous for personally shoveling one constituent’s driveway in 2010 and pulling another out of a burning building this spring. Since Hurricane Sandy hit, the social media-savvy politician has been busier than ever, inviting victims to watch DVDs at his house, delivering blankets to Newark residents who lost power after the storm, and otherwise working tirelessly to aid relief efforts.
It seems like Booker is everywhere, fixing problem after problem with the sheer force of his awesomeness… which may be why Irish account executive Lee Daly thought it’d be a good idea to ask the mayor if he could fix a pothole in Daly’s hometown. His facetious request inspired what might be the best tweet ever tweeted:
A+++, Mayor Booker. Say, what do you have planned for 2016?
