Chris Christie hosted a sportstalk radio show and got called a “fat ass” and a “bully” by a New Jersey resident.
New Jersey governor Chris Christie is a guest-host in the afternoon drive-time slot on New York’s WFAN with Evan Roberts. The spot is reportedly a tryout for the bigger role in the future. The gig comes after Christie was photographed at a New Jersey beach after the state government closed it to the public. All of this set the stage for a caller by the name of Mike in Montclair calling in on the air and shouting out Christie
Some NSFW language ahead.
Mike: “Governor, next time you want to sit on a beach that is closed to the entire world except you, you put your fat [backside] in a car and go to one that’s opened to all your constituents.”
Christie: “You know, Mike, I love getting calls from communists in Montclair.”
Mike: “You’re a bully, governor! And I don’t like bullies!”
Christie then rebutted the caller for being a “bum” and for using foul language over the air. He then chatted with Roberts about how he lost Montclair during a 2013 election.
In all honesty, what else did Christie expect when he opened himself up to sports radio in the tri-state area? He can only look forward to more of the same if he is selected (and if he excepts) a permanent role down the road.
