Al Roker Has Started A Bitter Feud With New York Mayor Bill De Blasio

“Long range DiBlasio forecast: 1 term”

1. Al Roker has been complaining about New York Mayor Bill de Blasio not closing city public schools since the first big winter storms of the season.

2. But at that time he was quick to forgive the new mayor.

3. Though he did retweet this little jab.

4. On Thursday, seeing that there were no school closures announced, Roker became incensed and took to Twitter for an extended rant about school closure and safety.

And how about all the parents and caregivers who have to scramble to get their kids home? Is there no one there with any common sense?

I knew this am @NYCMayorsOffice @NYCSchools would close schools. Talk about a bad prediction. Long range DiBlasio forecast: 1 term

@NYCMayorsOffice @NYCSchools Please, so we understand, make known weather-related school closing policy. Of course, assuming you have one.

11. During a news conference on snow preparations, Mayor de Blasio finally responded to Roker’s raging.

.@BilldeBlasio to @alroker: "It's a different thing to run the city than to give the weather on TV."

12. But Roker seems far from forgiving.

Mr. Mayor, I could never run NYC, but I know when it's time to keep kids home from school
