Why Is Chris Christie Getting In The Face Of This Cubs Fan?

You know what they say — ‘if you can’t hang with the big dogs, stay on the porch.’

Mr. big shot New Jersey governor Chris Christie is about as likable as they come. As proof, here he is getting right in the face of a Cubs fan at a Milwaukee Brewers game Sunday.

According to WISN, the fan, Brad Joseph, shouted a little heckling Christie’s way. That’s all the governor needed to start the confrontation.

“When he initially was going up the stairs I yelled his name. He was quite a bit passed me, and 30 feet away I yelled his name and told him that he sucked. … I called him a hypocrite because I thought it needed to be said. He turned around back towards me and got in my face for what seemed like a long time, but was probably only about 30 seconds or a minute. (He) was yelling at me. First he told me, ‘Why don’t you have another beer?’ which I thought was a decent come back, and I thought that was kind of funny. Then he started calling me a tough guy.”

Christie’s son reportedly works for the Brewers. He was also allegedly booed heavily by fans roughly two weeks ago after catching a foul ball at a game against the Cardinals.

New Jersey governors theses days, amirite?
