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