Cory Booker loads up on junk food before hurricane

Booker started out his calorie-soaked feast by grabbing some late-night grub, writing that he was finishing up dinner at Newark’s Andros Diner and heading out to make the rounds visiting The Garden State’s non-emergency call operators. Specialties at the 24-hour eatery include the “Andros Fries” (which consists of French fries topped with three cheeses and crumbled bacon, served with a side of ranch dressing) and the “Ironbound Burger” (a 10 oz. patty topped with Swiss cheese and bacon). No word on what Booker ordered.

While tweeting late into the night on Sunday, one Twitter follower asked Booker, “is your blood type coffee?” The mayor replied, “Usually but tonight it is diet Mountain Dew.” Well, at least he has the “diet” thing going for him.

But the pre-Sandy food tour didn’t end there. Just before 11:30 p.m., Booker, a staunch supporter of President Obama’s reelection campaign, wrote on Twitter, “I’m going to do a quick coffee and doughnuts run for the team here (Michelle Obama forgive the junk food).”

Booker actually had to turn down an offer to add some free booze to his pre-hurricane menu. When one Twitter follower invited Booker to join them for a “hurricane special” beer at a local lounge, he responded by saying he was at a Dunkin' Donuts “treating [everyone] in here” to the sugary goodies.
