Gov. Chris Christie (R) “gave an expletive-laced speech at an annual New Jersey media roast Wednesday, taking aim at reporters who had mocked him for the George Washington Bridge scandal, his travels and the state’s finances,” Bloomberg reports.
Said Christie: “We don’t give a shit about this or any of you.”
He told one journalist to “open your eyes” and “clean the shit out of your ears. This is a guy who says he doesn’t know what I’m doing every day. Then just get the fuck away from me then if you don’t know what I’m doing.”
Media bashing is popular on both sides of the political spectrum, but this attack goes beyond media bashing.
"Clean the shit out of your ears"?
"Get the fuck away from me"?
Yeah, that sounds presidential.
Comments like these out of Christie show you just how frustrated he is, plummeting in the polls, big money donors giving their money to others and his dream of being president stuck worse than the traffic at the GWB during Bridgegate.
