The Republican party might think it has a problem in New Jersey governor Chris Christie, who routinely flouts their friendship and, instead, opening embraces traditionally liberal characteristics, like listening to Bruce Springsteen non-ironically, hugging the President and, of course, insisting on living in New Jersey. But if the GOP thought that they were somehow Chris Christie’s biggest beef, well, they’re at least one behind the pint-sized guido star of Jersey Shore.
They met today on the boardwalk at Seaside Heights and things were…awkward.
Gov. Chris Christie hates Snooki more than Snooki hates sobriety … so says the MTV star … and it couldn’t have been more apparent during an awkward encounter in NJ moments ago. Christie and Snooki came face-to-face on the Seaside Heights boardwalk after taping separate segments for the “Today” show.
During the exchange, Snooki complains that Christie is standing too close to her … so Christie comically leans in even closer. After Christie extended a handshake to the “Jersey Shore” star — who was flanked by JWoww and Deena Cortese – Snook tells CC, “I just wanted to meet you, and just, hope you start to like us.”
To be fair, that’s probably a mark in his favor more than a mark against it.
