Mindy Kaling's character on “The Mindy Show” called out New Jersey Senator Cory Booker during a recent episode, and he answered her in real life.
Booker tweeted on Friday to playfully address how Mindy's Newark diss broke his heart. He posted a broken-heart emoji and wrote, "Ouch. Heard Dr. Lahiri dissed Newark last night." He then wrote, "I still [heart] u!"
That’s when the flirting began. Mindy posted a heart emoji and tweeted, "Senator, if Mindy Lahiri shades it, it means we know it's cool. Thanks for the [love]. It's mutual!"
Booker tweeted back, "You are making my day! Thanks for the clarification. And If the [love] is really mutual... Come have dinner with me in Newark? #PleaseSayYes."
Mindy then wrote back, "Yes. Now let me get that PATH train schedule."
Booker then replied, "Thank you! PATH train is awesome when you are Jersey bound. But you are @Lyft worthy! I will send one to you for the door to door."
