Conan O'Brien will have Newark, N.J., mayor as guest Friday

Posted on

The mayor of Newark, N.J., will settle his feud with Conan O’Brien on The Tonight Show, the Associated Press reports. Mayor Cory Booker, who gained national attention for his YouTube defense of his city, will get to plead his case to a network television audience. He’ll appear on O’Brien’s show Friday to end their playful ribbing, which began Sept. 23 when O’Brien poked fun at Booker’s health care plan for his embattled city, saying it should consist of a bus ticket out of town; Booker, in turn, “banned” O’Brien from Newark Liberty International Airport.
