Gov. Christie Calls Reporter an “Idiot”

Posted by Steve Markowitz on July 2, 2012

Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey on July 1 held a news conference concerning water main breaks affecting 22 municipalities.  In advance, reporters were informed that the only questions that would be taken had to relate to the water issues.  One reporter did not heed the ground rules and asked the Governor a question concerning an upcoming legislative session.  To that the Governor responded in pure Christie saying: “Did I say on topic?  Are you stupid?  On topic, on topic.  Next question,” posted in the video below.

Whether one is a Christie fan or not, he is at least brutally honest, something lacking in many politicians.  It’s interesting how differently the mainstream media response to the Christie outburst to one by Barack Obama during a similar circumstance.  It obviously relates to of the reporter’s politics.
