Things got downright HOSTILE on the Jersey Shore last night — with NJ Governor Chris Christie getting into a heated verbal altercation right on the boardwalk … and it was all caught on tape.
Gov. Christie (R-NJ) was hangin” with his family in Seaside Heights … and had just ordered an ice cream cone when a passerby fired off some snide comments about Christie”s policy on education.
Christie got PISSED — and while clutching his cone, shouted back at the guy, “You”re a real big shot … you”re a real big shot shootin” your mouth off.”
The man shouted back, “Nah, just take care of the teachers!”
The comment only enflamed Christie … who aggresively marched towards the guy and warned, “Keep walkin” away … really good … keep walkin”.”
Soon after, someone in Christie”s party put his arm around the 49-year-old and escorted him in the other direction.
FYI — Christie, one of the prime contenders for the Republican Vice Presidential nomination, has recently signed legislation expanding public funding for charter schools … a decision that has infuriated some who would prefer the money go towards struggling public schools.
Christie”s temper has been making headlines after he called a reporter “stupid” and an “idiot” on Saturday for asking off-topic questions at a news conference.
Christie”s camp had no comment on the story.
