Chris Christie calls out reporter: ‘Are you stupid?’



It’s Monday, and we need some Jersey talk to keep us on our toes.

And we’ve got some for you.

During a Saturday press conference, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie got a bit fiesty with a reporter who asked a question off topic.

NBC New York notes:

Reporters were told in advance that the governor was only taking questions about a water emergency caused by collapsed mains in Monmouth County. At the end of the briefing, one reporter tried to ask Christie a question about a special joint legislative session the governor had called for Monday. 

“Did I say on topic?” Christie asked the reporter. “Are you stupid? On topic, on topic. Next question. Thank you all very much and I’m sorry for the idiot over there.”
