Emanuel gets heated when Cuba travel plans revealed
Rahm Emanuel laid into POLITICO’s Mike Allen on Wednesday when Allen revealed the Chicago mayor’s plans to vacation in Cuba with his family over the holidays, angrily saying, “I really don’t appreciate that.”
At the end of a nearly hour-long discussion during POLITICO Illinois’ inaugural Playbook Breakfast event, Allen turned to Emanuel in recounting a backstage discussion before the event began.
“We were saying backstage that you want to come back as an Emanuel child. You take your young people on fascinating trips around the world, headed these holidays to Cuba. Why?” POLITICO’s senior White House correspondent asked.
Emanuel bristled, responding, “Well, first of all, thanks for telling everybody what I’m going to do with my family.”
