Newark Mayor Cory Booker appeared on CNN's Piers Morgan Tonight to respond to the ridiculous claims by Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann that Hurricane Irene was a sign for "politicians" to "listen" to God.
"For anyone human being to think they know what God is thinking is tremendously arrogant," said the mayor. "What I think he wants me to do is to stop talking about him so much and start trying to live his message."
The Minnesota Republican later said it was just a "joke."
Some joke. Nearly 350,000 remain without power in New Jersey, where flood waters are still rising. The damage from the hurricane has left more than 3 million without power nationwide and at least 38 deaths.
