Since Republican governor, and 2016 presidential hopeful, Chris Christie is back in the news due to his oversized temper, I thought it might be a good time to revisit the top 4 Chris Christie meltdown videos from the past few years.
As a bit of background, I’d reported earlier today that Christie is in trouble for new emails suggesting he shut down traffic in a New Jersey town, endangering EMT response, in order to punish the local mayor who didn’t support Christie’s recent re-election.
It seemed therefore an appropriate time to revisit Christie’s growing anger management problems.
In this first video, we have Christie responding snippily to a teacher who is upset about how much teachers get paid:
Rita Wilson: You’re not compensating me for my education, and you’re not compensating me for my experience.
Gov. Christie: Well you know what? Then you don’t have to do it.
That might work in New Jersey, but if Christie pulls that on the national campaign trail, he’s going to lose the women vote, and more. Watch:
Next, I found a video of Christie responding to a reporter’s question about calling back the legislature. Christie calls the reporter “stupid” and an “idiot.”
Of course, “idiot” might be better than what he called one female protester during a rally: “sweetheart.” Note to Christie: Try calling Hillary “sweetheart” in 2016 and see how long you keep your jewels.
Then we have Christie responding to a question from a mom who’s concerned that Christie is cutting public school funding while sending his kids to private schools. Christie’s answer: “It’s none of your business.”
