Bloomberg Found Out About Obama’s Upcoming Visit ‘on the Blogs’


It would appear Mayor Bloomberg gets just as annoyed as us common folk do when we find out from the internet that our “friend” is coming to town instead of from the person himself. When asked by reporters about President Obama’s planned visit to New York City Thursday to talk at Cooper Union about financial reform, Bloomberg said: “I just saw on the blogs this morning he was coming in… so I haven’t talked to anyone in the White House.” We’re not sure which is more amusing: Bloomberg getting sort of sensitive, or the revelation that he reads (multiple!) blogs.
