Obama, Bloomberg, Everybody ‘Furious’ About NYC 747 Photo-Op


Everybody's "furious" (rightly so) about the taxpayer-funded photo-op of the Air Force One jet that caused evacutations and scared the crap out of lower Manhattan yesterday. If you want to see a typical reaction, check out the video, AFTER THE JUMP, top left.

ABC News: "When President Obama was told about the incident, he was 'furious,' a White House official says. [Director of the White House Military Office Louis] Caldera was called into a meeting with White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel and deputy chief of staff Jim Messina. 'It didn't sound like a fun meeting,' the White House official says."

NYDN: "A "furious" Mayor Bloomberg denounced the dunces who dreamed up the stunt - and the NYPD officials and bureaucrats who never told him about it. By day's end, an obscure City Hall deputy named Marc Mugnos, who makes $60,000 a year, was taking the fall for not telling Bloomberg that the low-flying planes were coming. He was reprimanded"

AFTER THE JUMP, a couple plane videos, Bloomberg, and Maddow's report.
