New Jersey Governor Chris Christie was reportedly booed in New York today during a Super Bowl ceremony.
The Republican governor was booed when he was introduced to the crowd.
(When was the last time the AP posted video of Obama being booed?… Just wondering.)
The Politicker reported:
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s “Bridgegate” scandal today followed him all the way across the George Washington Bridge and into New York City.
At a Times Square Super Bowl hand-off ceremony, where Mr. Christie was on hand to pass the figurative baton to Arizona’s governor, who will host the game next year, Mr. Christie was booed both when he was introduced and as he addressed the sports fans gathered.
“We hate traffic! We hate traffic!” a heckler chanted in the back of the crowd.
“Boooooo!” someone else yelled.
Several other journalists reported hearingboos as well. The negativity was far from unanimous, however, and many others in the audience cheered the embattled governor, whose administration is currently pushing backagainst new accusations that Mr. Chritie knew about the now-infamous George Washington Bridge lane closures that forced massive traffic problems last September.
Christie fired back at The New York Times today in response to their article that linked Christie to the GW Bridge lane closings.
