New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie seems to be getting into it with just about everyone nowadays, and as we know, even baseball games are no longer sacred.
First, he got booed at a Mets game after catching a foul ball. This time, Christie got into it with someone at a Sunday game between the Chicago Cubs and Milwaukee Brewers, whom his son works for, according to ABC affiliate WISN 12 NEWS.
It all started with a fan, Brad Joseph, calling out to Christie to tell him “he sucked.” This led to the infamous governor getting in Joseph’s face to call him “a big shot.”
And, interestingly enough, a WISN 12 NEWS reporter related to Joseph, Ben Hutchison, caught some of the verbal altercation on video.
Joseph recounted the chain of events to WISN 12 NEWS.
“When he initially was going up the stairs I yelled his name. He was already quite a bit past me, and 30 feet away I yelled his name and told him that he sucked,” Joseph said. “I called him a hypocrite because I thought it needed to be said. He then turned around and walked all the way back towards me and got up in my face for what seemed like a long time, but was probably only about 30 seconds or a minute.”
According to Joseph, Christie yelled at him, asking if he wanted another beer. He also called him a “tough guy.”
“He is a public official and this is America and I think we have the right to say what you believe as long as it’s not crude or profane,” Joseph told WISN 12 NEWS.
Maybe Christie was just grumpy because he missed the beach.
