New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, known for his candor, snapped at a reporter Saturday while taking issue with his question at a press conference.
Reporters were told the governor would only answer questions about a major problem at a water treatment plant, according to the Newark Star-Ledger.
Yet one reporter proceeded to ask an unrelated question involving the state legislature, as seen in video of the press conference from Monmouth County.
Christie, cutting him off, said: “Did I say on topic? Are you stupid? On topic, on topic. Next question.”
As the reported tried to follow up, the Republican governor again interjected and ended the press conference.
“Thank you all very much, and I’m sorry for the idiot over there. Take care,” he said before walking away.
Can you imagine if a Dem tried this, especially “arrogant, uppity Obama”? Christie on the other hand, he’ll get away with it. Hell, he’ll be a hero. Republicans don’t have to answer your gorram questions, you know. Open hostility to the press and the press takes it and we all have a good laugh, and then the Republican presidential candidate’s campaign guys announce that the press no longer matters because of Drudge and St. Andy Of The Pageview’s Ghost, so stay tuned while we make our own reality. Fun for everyone.
Rest of you mooks, get outta here.
