Not content with saving people from fires and storms and probably firestorms, Newark Mayor Cory Booker heard about a dog left out alone in the cold, went and got her, took her inside, contacted her owners, and probably saved her from getting hypothermia. I just cannot with this guy.
The dog, whose name is Cha Cha, was spotted shivering on a Newark porch by a local ABC reporter, who alerted Booker on Twitter. (She’s getting a little shade about not saving the dog herself, but to be fair it’s a little easier for the mayor to storm onto your property and seize your animals than it is for some rando.) Look at him being all heroic and shit:
Cha Cha’s owner says he doesn’t know how she ended up outside, but that’s probably because he was ashamed to speak the truth to Booker’s burning eyes and ridiculous headband.

Seriously though, people, don’t leave your animals outside in this weather. I know they have coats, but you have a coat too, and you wouldn’t want to be outside all night in it. Don’t make us sic Cory Booker on your ass.
