Cory Booker Bans Conan O'Brien from Airport
Among the Emmys and other honors won by Conan O'Brien, he has now been banned from Newark Airport. He joked the other night that Newark Mayor Cory Booker had devised a health-care plan for the city: "A bus ticket out of Newark." In a style suspiciously reminiscent of other filmed Conan bits, Mayor Booker and other engaged Newarkians or Newarkers or whatever they call themselves denounce the comedian for his "swing at our city." and "officially" put him on the "Newark, New Jersey airport no-fly list. Try JFK, buddy." How he'll miss those Cinnabons.
