Cory Booker Still Hasn’t Convinced Us That He’s Not Batman

It’s been a while since real life superhero and Mayor of Newark Cory Booker has done something heroic. But with the northeast locked in the icy throes of a deep freeze, the man who comprises one half of the Gosling and Booker comic book superhero duo sprang into action, this time rescuing a dog on the verge of freezing to death.

Reports ABC News:

While out working on a story in freezing New Jersey, a reporter and camera crew from New York station WABC-TV noticed a dog left out in the cold.

Hours later, when they passed by again and saw that the dog was still outside, they decided to take the issue to Twitter, and the mayor.

Reporter Toni Yates tweeted N.J. Mayor Cory Booker and WABC. In the tweet, she applauded Newark for its heat help, but added, “Make pet owners get their dogs out of the cold.”

People began re-tweeting the messages, and soon enough the mayor was on the scene with the shivering dog.

Booker picked up the dog and put it into the back of a police car.

“If you’d crank up that heat, I’d appreciate it,” he told the police officer.

Booker, 43, called the dog’s owner and told them it was unacceptable to leave the dog outside in the freezing weather, WABC reported.

Goddamn Cory Booker is almost as cool as this skateboarding cat…
