Ooooh la la now here's some fun Friday gossip: New Jersey Senator Cory Booker asked out comedian Mindy Kaling on Twitter today after some serious flirting. And it looks like they made a date. So buckle up folks, this power couple could actually happen!
The flirtation began earlier this week when Mindy Kaling's character on The Mindy Project name-checked Cory Booker and poked fun at the city of Newark, of which he used to be Mayor. So the Twitter-happy Senator called her out with this tweet:
"Ouch!" he wrote with a broken-heart emoji. "@MindyKaling, heard Dr. Lahiri dissed Newark last night.... & I disagree." He then added: "I still ❤️ U!"
