Al Roker Lays Into NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio Over ‘Goofball’ School Closing Decision

Al Roker and Bill de Blasio feud

Al Roker abandoned his cheery disposition this morning so he could lay into New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio. Roker took to his official Twitter account (@alroker) where he questioned school closings throughout the city.

On Early Thursday morning the following tweets were sent out by the Today Show host.

The typically friendly meteorologist even offered a funny “forecast” for the Mayor’s time in office:

During a press conference later in the day Bill de Blasio was asked about Roker’s comment, to which he responded, “It’s a different thing to run a city than to give weather on TV.”

Not pleased with the NYC Mayor’s response Al Roker shot back:

So why were schools only opened for a short period of time in New York City? According to city officials, if some kids don’t go to school they miss important meals they never receive at home.

Do you think Al Roker was right to tweet an attack against the Mayor’s office?
