Al Roker’s Severe Forecast for NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio: ’1 Term’

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has been taking some heat today for keeping city schools open during the snow storm, and “Today’s” Al Roker joined in via Sochi.

Roker was tweeting away during a press conference Mayor de Blasio gave this morning, with Willie Geist offering the visual.

Roker went on to criticize the mayor for seeming to point blame at the National Weather Service.

De Blasio responded to Roker’s criticism during the press conference.

“I respect Al Roker a lot,” he said, adding,”It’s a different thing to run a city than to give the weather on TV.”
