We all knew that Chicago Mayor and former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel was a competitive kind of guy. But now he’s carrying it a bit too far.
Gothamist has its knickers in a twist because the Windy City’s head honcho apparently dissed New Yorkers while doing an interview with a local Chicago magazine called Michigan Avenue. Emanuel reportedly overheard a visiting New Yorker “raving” about the Chicago skyline before adding “but I still love New York.” This remark didn’t sit well with the mayor, who couldn’t refrain from turning to the tourist and saying, “That’s the thing about you New Yorkers. Always talking about how much you love your city. Here in Chicago, we just do.”
