Cory Booker Gives Update On Mindy Kaling Dinner Date!

Senator Cory Booker is spilling the deets on his flirty Twitter exchange with Mindy Kaling, which led her to agreeing to go on a date with him.

The 37-year-old actress made a joke in an episode of her Hulu show The Mindy Project, about the former mayor of Newark, New Jersey doing “anything to get out of Newark” which struck a nerve in Cory.

“Well first of all, don’t read too into it about ‘asking out,’” Cory told Vanity Fair. “I want to sort of take the romantic aspect out of it and talk more about how she’s amazing. Her show gave a little dis to Newark, and I’m a big defender of cities, and so I called her out on it. Not only did she say, hey, this is her character, not [her personal insult], but then she agreed to come over to Newark, New Jersey. She hasn’t yet. I mean, she’s a busy person . . . so we’ll see what happens in the future.”

“I just think she’s a really wonderful person, that’s it,” Cory added. “So all the romantic talk, put that aside, but let’s focus on a really extraordinary human being that I hope to get to New Jersey.”
