Kaling's alter ego had expressed surprise in a recent episode of "The Mindy Project" that the junior US senator from New Jersey attended her colleague's event, remarking, "Cory Booker?".
"Cory Booker? I can't believe he came".
Mindy Kaling is living out a romantic comedy plot!
It all began with a diss on Hulu's "The Mindy Project" and ended with Mindy Kaling agreeing to go on a date with New Jersey Sen.
Booker, apparently a big fan of The Mindy Project, took mock offense when Kaling's character poked fun at Newark, New Jersey, the city where Booker was mayor for a decade. Cory Booker on Twitter. "Anything to get out of Newark". "& I disagree." This had Kaling tweeting back, attempting to reassure it was a joke and actually a compliment because anything her character thinks is lame is actually cool.
HollywoodLifers, what did you think of Mindy and Cory's flirty tweets?
Ryan McBride: Derry City captain dies aged 27
McBride made his debut for Derry in 2011 and quickly became a fan favourite for his tough tackling defensive style. The FAI will pay tribute to McBride at Friday night's World Cup qualifier against Wales at the Aviva Stadium.
It didn't take long for the official Twitter account for the PATH commuter train line between New Jersey and NY to help by offering the trains' schedules.
"Ouch! @MindyKaling, heard Dr. Lahiri dissed Newark last night ..." "Senator, if Mindy Lahiri shades it, it means we know it's cool", Kaling responded.
Booker then made his move: "You are making my day!"
"Thank you! PATH train is awesome when you are Jersey bound".
But Booker wasn't having that and promised he would send a Lyft to give Kaling door-to-door service.
