And speaking of the President, he traveled to New Jersey today to check out first hand the devastation from Hurricane Sandy in New Jersey. And celebs in NYC weren't spared from the devastation either:
NY Knicks baller Amar'e Stoudemire shared pics of what Sandy did to his Range Rover!
The baller's car was flooded out during the storm when flood water swept through his parking garage. He said, " My truck #Sandy No Power, No Water" Damn!
And back at home....he and his family (including the adorable kids) are stuck with no electricity. But they made their meal into a candlelit dinner. Gotta make the most out of it.
