If there is one person who seems to be having worse time than President Donald Trump, it’s New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie — the man brutally stripped off his chances to become the vice president or attain any other position in Trump’s cabinet even after giving up his dignity to support Trump.
After his disastrous presidential run and the debacle of vacationing on a public beach during a government shutdown he ordered, Christie's approval ratings are in the tank.
Days after he was booed for catching a foul ball and giving it to a kid nearby during a game between the St. Louis Cardinals and New York Mets, the beleaguered governor became a target of another heckler during a match-up between the Milwaukee Brewers and the Chicago Cubs at Miller Park in Milwaukee.
The video of their altercation, which has since gone viral, shows Christie tightly clutching a serving of nachos in his left hand and menacingly staring a Cubs fan in the face.
“You're a big shot,” the governor said, before walking down the stairs.
“I appreciate that,” the fan responded.
Ben Hutchison, news reporter for the local station WISN12, identified the Cubs fans as Brad Joseph.
According to the station, Joseph yelled Christie’s name “and told him that he sucked,” which prompted the governor to pause on his way back to his seat.
“I called him a hypocrite because I thought it needed to be said,” the fan continued. “He turned around back towards me and got in my face for what seemed like a long time, but was probably only about 30 seconds or a minute. (He) was yelling at me. First he told me, ‘Why don’t you have another beer?’ which I thought was a decent come back, and I thought that was kind of funny. Then he started calling me a tough guy.”
Hutchinson, who posted the original clip, began filming the altercation toward the very end.
Social media users were very intrigued by the whole episode.
