Conan O'Brien & Newark Mayor Resolve 'Feud' On 'Tonight Show' (Video)

Conan O'Brien and Newark Mayor Cory Booker turned their frivolous feud about the city into comedy on the 'Tonight Show' on Friday night.

"Many jokes are made about Newark by comedians," O'Brien said. "You honed in on me like a cruise missile. Why me, Mayor Booker?"

"When there's a herd going after you, you have to sort of look at the weakest gazelle," Booker joked.

Booker also spoke about his efforts for urban transformation in Newark and left the interview with a $100,000 donation to his Newark Now charity from O'Brien and NBC Universal.

"It was one joke," O'Brien quipped, "and, man, was it expensive."
