7 Videos Chris Christie Probably Doesn't Want You to See

7 Videos Chris Christie Probably Doesn't Want You to See

During Thursday's press conference to address the increasingly bizarre bridge-closing scandal, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) need to get a lot off his chest, including how some view his in-your-face political style.

"I am who I am, but I am not a bully," Christie said. "I am tough, but I'm willing to compromise." 

It's no suprise some people view him as a bully. Some of his own aides are tasked with videotaping all of his public speeches and events in the hopes of finding more of these boo-yeah moments to share on his own YouTube page. And while it's refreshing to have a politician who actually speaks his mind in a clear and concise way, Christie might just be going a bit overboard and dangerously veering into the territory of bullying. 

Here are a few moments which might help clarify things for you.  

1. To a reporter

"You know Tom, you must be the thinnest-skinned guy in America … you should really see me when I'm pissed."

2. To another reporter

"Are you stupid?…I'm sorry for the idiot over there." 

3. To a public schoolteacher-supporter on the New Jersey boardwalk

"You're a real big shot. You're a real big shot. Just keep walking away. Keep walking." 

4. To a teacher in an audience

"If what you want to do is put on a show and giggle every time I talk, well then I have no interest in answering your question."

5. To a former Navy SEAL

"Your rear end's going to get thrown in jail, idiot."

6. To a former White House doctor

"This is just another hack who wants five minutes on TV … she should shut up." 

7. To Jon Stewart

"If you don't like being called an idiot, then stop acting like an idiot"
