Chris Christie Booed At Times Square By "We Hate Traffic"-Chanting New Yorkers

Tyler Durden's picture

Philadelpia may have booed Santa Claus, but last night it was New York's turn to boo a not so jolly, calorie-challenged man, embattled NJ governor Chris Christie, during the ceremonial Super Bowl “handoff” at Times square. However, in the aftermath of Friday's NYT revelations that evidence exists that Christie was aware about the real reason behind the bridge closures as they happened, onlookers only had a brief 30 seconds during which to boo Christie before he promptly departed the stage on his own.

The Post describes Saturday's event as follows:

Amid a chorus of boos, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie took a Times Square stage Saturday for the ceremonial Super Bowl “handoff” — then ran for daylight from “Bridgegate” questions.


The usually loquacious governor spoke for just 30 seconds at the event, during which one detractor jeered, “We hate traffic! We hate traffic!”


The ceremony, during which Christie and Gov. Cuomo passed on Super Bowl responsibilities to next year’s host, Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, came a day after a disgraced Christie crony claimed “evidence exists” to show Christie knew about the George Washington Bridge traffic snarl as it unfolded.


“We look forward to handing it over to Arizona,” Christie told the crowd. “I was proud to be in New Orleans last year to accept the handoff on behalf of the region.”


As he scrambled to leave, Christie ignored a Post reporter’s questions on the new “evidence” mentioned in a letter released Friday by former Port Authority official David Wildstein.

Guess the governor should have handed out some more Christiephones with which to buy the affection of the great unwashed in advance. In the meantime, Christie defended himself with the following 700 page email leaked yesterday:


The above summarized as to the reasons suggested by the Christie camp for Wildstein's allegations:

Because as a “a 16-year-old kid” he filed a lawsuit over a school board election and was “publicly accused by his high school social studies teacher of deceptive behavior.” Because he was, according to Christie, a “tumultuous” person (not the correct usage of that word, Governor, but whatever). Because he was “a political animal” who had “a controversial tenure” as the mayor of Livingston. Because he “made moves that were not productive.”

Sadly for Christie, at this point few are buying it, as yet another politician is dragged right back into the same maelstrom of petty cronyism and corruption from which he fought so hard to show he is not part of, ahead of a presidential campaign that is now all but finished.

Come on ZH. "Calorie-challenged" would mean to be deficient in calories. He is anything but.

I'm still waiting for the evidence to come forward..., or is the claim to such evidence all that matters?

The NYT would never fabricate for political reasons...<SARC>

It's glands.  An extra 2000 calories/day of glands.

Could you maybe provide Google Trend data or some such to back your assertion?

Oh, I get it, you are just making shit up....

You and your up voters prove once again how incredibly fuckin' stupid ZH's readership is.

Thank you for reminding me what a waste of time reading the "comments" section is.

Who follows Main Stream Media? They are corporate whores who work for whatever the elite want at any given moment. Christy pissed off the 1%, the corporate media will cut him to bits. Death of a thousand cuts, and all that.!

Sorry Tyler, but that doesn't wash grammatically.

The sentence is, "not so jolly, calorie-challenged man, embattled NJ governor"

You make 3 points about the man. #1 and # 3 are facts sans sarcasm. Ergo, #2 is to be considered in the same light.

"Mr. Christie, did you have prior knowledge of the bridge closures and were they done as punishment?"

"What difference does it make?!"


End of story. He needs a new consigliere

Could be they goofed on the parallelism and don't get it yet or don't want to admit it.

The other interpretaion is that "calorie challenged" can mean too many or too few. Or he is very challenged in terms of not consuming them.

He's naturally competative.   Some people see a box of donuts.   Some people see a box of challenge.

"Could be they goofed on the parallelism and don't get it yet or don't want to admit it."

Or ... all of the above.

Grammar isn't high on Tyler's priority list.   Neither is spelling, proofreading, etc.

I didn't know you could do that with Google search. Thanks for the tip!

You are correct. And the federal goverent calls hungry kids in the US nutritionally challenged.

In addition, in 2012, 16.1 million or approximately 22 percent of children in the U.S. lived in poverty.

The United States changed the name of its definitions in 2006 that eliminated references to hunger, keeping various categories of food insecurity. Now "hungry children" are classified by the government as "food insecure children" or nutritionally challenged.

With continued increases in the number of hungry children during this "remarkable" economic recovery, those in government must sleep better knowing there are no more hungry children. They are just food insecure.


(Nothing like a good Sunday morning rant!)

Perhaps they are expedited on their way to becoming nutritionally challenged by having their school lunches thrown away in Utah.

Dumb, dumb, dumb, dumb, dumb.


Cue WB7 for visual malnourished child with arms around Crispy Creme holding crumbs.

I truly feel a sense of sorrow and sadness for the corrupt fat fuck..

I just hope he doesn't go on an eating bing in his depression and explode, no differnent than a car bomb in Iraq or the Hindenburg blimp...

If this helps, I don't think people need to feel they are looking in the mirror when they see their next POTUS.

For that matter, their ex wife...

Here's a documentary on the eating habits of Chis Christe.  Someone had to post this..

They shouldn't think of it as traffic but rather what it's probably like being stuck behind Christie at the drive-through

Koch brothers sure fixed his ass! Don't blame this on Democrats. He is being cleared out of the way for a "true" conservative.

Didn't hear many boos or chants. But That was one short speech for sure. He must know the walls are closing in.

Did you see his shadow? Means there's 6 more weeks of fraud and corruption?

Only 6 more weeks? Far fucking out!

While I'm no fan of Christie, it's almost comical how he's incessantly hounded about "bridge-gate", while the hard core crooks like O, Holder, Clinton, et al continue to get a pass.

He's not a fully 'made-man' yet, he's still only an associate of the family, has made his bones.

Just like raw milk farmers, old ladies with front yard gardens, and small business owners are being targeted by the out of control USG for providing for their communities while politicians and bankers destroy what's left of the human race.
