Mindy Kaling and New Jersey Senator Cory Booker inspired a whole fan base to start 'shipping their Twitter flirt. Could they maybe take their witty, playful banter from Twitter into real life and date?
It all started last week when Booker called out Kaling and her show for dissing Newark, New Jersey.
Ouch! @MindyKaling, heard Dr. Lahiri dissed Newark last night href="https://twitter.com/voguemagazine">@VogueMagazine & I disagree href="https://t.co/2wP7ZqJKQd">https://t.co/2wP7ZqJKQd (I still U!) pic.twitter.com/FSwfkxenQJ— Cory Booker (@CoryBooker) March 23, 2017
Kaling was quick to respond and confirm the love was mutual.
Senator, if Mindy Lahiri shades it, it means we know it's cool. Thanks for the love. It's mutual! https://t.co/KW2ibviREc— Mindy Kaling (@mindykaling) March 23, 2017
From there, Booker asked her to have dinner with him.
And she readily accepted.
@CoryBooker yes. Now let me get the PATH train schedule.— Mindy Kaling (@mindykaling) March 23, 2017
We are totally on board with this relationship. There might just be one problem: It may have just been a friendly, "hey, I'm a fan," kind of exchange since Booker was most recently linked to Instagram poet Cleo Wade. Though it's unclear whether the two are still dating since the news broke last summer, it could be that Kaling and Senator Booker aren't meant to be anything more than friends... for now.
In the meantime, we'll be dreaming of this couple made in social media heaven along with the rest of Twitter.
@mindykaling you could totally marry Cory Booker and be First Lady one day. A Michelle w/ a better knowledge of Real Housewives...— She Persisted (@rlnbeauty) March 23, 2017
I don't care whether they're just friends. This dinner needs to happen.
