Chris Christie’s summer of fun just keeps on rollin’.
At Sunday’s Cubs Brewers game in Milwaukee, Christie got in a rather heated exchange with a Cubs fan as someone captured the interaction.
Christie, whose son works for the Brewers, is seen kneeling down, full bowl of nachos in hand, scolding his castigator like some sort of middle school teacher.

The fan in question, Brad Joseph, explained the interaction to WISN 12 Milwaukee.
Joseph told the news station,
“When he initially was going up the stairs I yelled his name. He was already quite a bit past 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 then turned around and walked all the way back towards me and got up in my face for what seemed like a long time, but was probably only about 30 seconds or a minute.”
Honestly seems like some innocent banter, but according to Joseph, Big Chris was not playing around,
“(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.”
Joseph is definitely right that the ‘why don’t you have another beer’ come back is kind of funny. Didn’t know Christie had that kind of range.
But as Joseph told WISN, it’s also legitimate to give Chris Christie all the shit,
“He is a public official and this is America and I think we have the right to say what you believe as long as it’s not crude or profane.”
I think my favorite part of this whole interaction is the absolute MOUND of nachos in Christie’s clutches. Dude is ready to go to town, but first he has to scold some unruly Cubs fans.

Chris Christie is one of the most unpopular politicians in modern history and has made headlines this summer for closing off public beaches in New Jersey on July 4th weekend and then chilling on that very beach as well as being savagely booed after he caught a foul ball at a Mets game.

Despite the fact that basically any Chris Christie appearance is greeted with utter contempt by everyone that’s around him, the Jersey Governor seems intent on staying in the spotlight.
Our advice would be to take a couple plays off, Chris.

This is the most Chris Christie picture ever. It's like he commissioned someone to take the one photo that summed up his entire life. pic.twitter.com/TWjjoTZSWZ

"Chris Christie's Nachos" is going to be a popular fantasy team name this year.
