Chris Christie caught a foul ball at Citi Field, then got heavily booed and dunked on by a dopey play-by-play guy pic.twitter.com/n2GpN0EEQd— Chase Woodruff (@dcwoodruff) July 19, 2017
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie thought he had achieved an incredible feat after he caught a foul ball during the third inning of a Mets game at New York's Citi Field.
However, when he turned toward the crowd, looking all triumphant, he realized the noises he was hearing were not cheers.
The people were, in fact, jeering.
Even when the embattled governor handed the souvenir off to a young boy, the crowd continued to boo him.
Cardinals' announcer Dan McLaughlin also mocked Christie, saying, "Nice to see him get from the beach here to the ballpark."
McLaughlin was referring to Christie's latest scandal when the NJ governor was photographed relaxing on a state-owned beach with his family that was closed to the public because of a government shutdown.
Christie has an approval rating of just 15%, which is the lowest of any governor in the history of New Jersey.
