Gov. Christie went all macho with a Chicago Cubs fan Sunday at the Milwaukee Brewers’ Miller Park, clutching a bowl of fully loaded nachos so close to his chest that it threatened to turn his pale-green dress shirt into a cheesy Picasso. A video of the encounter quickly went viral on social media.

The fan, Brad Joseph, who was wearing a Cubs jersey, told Milwaukee’s WISN-TV that when Christie was walking up the ballpark stairs, “I yelled his name and told him that he sucked. I called him a hypocrite because I thought it needed to be said.”
Christie turned around for some face time with Joseph. “First he told me, ‘Why don’t you have another beer?’ which I thought was a decent comeback and I thought that was kind of funny,” Joseph said. “Then he started calling me a tough guy.”
Then Christie lumbered away. No nachos were hurt during the confrontation.
Cheese, Christie can’t even go to Milwaukee — where his son Andrew works for the Brewers — without getting in a fan’s face while making sure he doesn’t lose a drop of that precious melted cheddar.
You may recall that Christie, rated the nation’s most unpopular governor in a Quinnipiac University survey in June, once dissed Snooki on a Jersey Shore boardwalk. That video went viral, too.
He also openly rooted for the Dallas Cowboys during a Philadelphia Eagles home game, then called Eagles fans “the worst in America.” Apparently, he was unaware that thousands of Eagles fans live in New Jersey and are his constituents.
On July 18 at Citi Field in New York, Christie was loudly booed after catching a foul ball at a Mets-Cardinals game. Booed at a Mets game! And he’s a Mets fan!
