• “Sit Down and Shut Up!”: Chris Christie Teaches Every Politician How to Handle a Heckler

    Whether you love Chris Christie or hate him, you have to admit that this moment is pretty darned hilarious. The New Jersey governor was in no mood to be screwed with during a press conference commemorating the second anniversary of Superstorm Sandy, but one irritating former councilman decided to press his luck anyway…so the Jersey Devil came out to play. And he unleashed a verbal quarantine on this troublemaker!

    The councilman’s name is James Keady, and he was continually interrupting Christie’s speech while holding up a sign to obstruct the view of cameras. The sign read, “Get Sandy families back in their home — Finish the job.”

    As was alluded to earlier, The Gov wasn’t having any of it.

    I’m glad you had your day to show off, but we’re the ones who are here to actually do the work,” Christie shouted at the man. “So turn around, get your 15 minutes of fame, and then maybe take your jacket off, roll up your sleeves, and do something for the people of this state.”

    And it didn’t end there. Keady refused to back down, and neither did Chris.

    There’s been 23 months since then when all you’ve been doing is flapping your mouth and not doing anything,” charged Governor Christie. “So listen, you want to have the conversation later? I’m happy to have it, buddy. But until that time, sit down and shut up!

    Man, that was cathartic!
