Al Roker Rips NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio [VIDEO]

Everyone gets a little tense in bad weather. It’s understandable, its snowing, everything gets thrown out of whack. You have to figure out what to do with the kids for school, how to get to work and all the other headaches that come along with a snowstorm. We find it funny though, that the person who is most upset, is a local weatherman.  Dennis and Judi have poked fun at both NBC meteorologist Al Roker and new NYC Mayor Bill DeBlasio. But when Al Roker starts a Twitter war with Mayor DeBlasio, it literally becomes the perfect storm!

Apparently Roker took exception to DeBlasio’s refusal to close schools during the horrific nor’easter today and Roker let his displeasure be known in the Tweet below:


Roker provided other updates with a barrage of Tweets after the original was posted:

Roker even fired a direct shot at Mayor DeBlasio in the following Tweet:

I knew this am @NYCMayorsOffice @NYCSchools would close schools. Talk about a bad prediction. Long range DiBlasio forecast: 1 term

The handful of Tweets finally made the mayor respond. According to the Daily News, deBlasio responded, “I respect Al Roker a lot, watched him on TV for many many years,” de Blasio said. “It’s a different thing to run a city than to give weather on TV.” The mayor went on to say that he isn’t making decisions for the city based off of Roker’s forecasts.

Roker responded once again:
