“First of all, thanks for telling everybody what I’m going to do with my family,” Emanuel said. “You had a private conversation with me and you decided to make that public. I really don’t appreciate that. I really don’t.”

He added, “I’m expressing to you now publicly my displeasure.”

The mayor ultimately explained that he has made a commitment to take his children to see other parts of the world for good “family time” and so they can be exposed to other cultures.
