Chris Christie Calls Reporter ‘Stupid’ and an ‘Idiot’

Like most of the public, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has nothing but contempt for the media.

Who can blame him?

New Jersey’s governor is known for speaking his mind when something displeases him.

A reporter was reminded of that on Saturday when Gov. Christie snapped at him during a press conference, calling the reporter “stupid” and an “idiot.”

Reporters had been told in advance that the governor was only taking questions about a water emergency caused by collapsed water mains in Monmouth County. But at the end of the press conference a reporter tried to ask Christie a question about a special joint session of the legislature the governor had called for Monday.

“Did I say on topic?” Christie asked the reporter. “Are you stupid? On topic, on topic. Next question. Thank you all very much and I’m sorry for the idiot over there.”
