In case you can't watch that video, here's what Christie said:
The Phillies suck. Let's just start with that.They’re from Philadelphia. They’re an awful team. They’re an angry, bitter fanbase. And it's not safe for civilized people to go to Citizens Bank Park if you want to root for the other team."
In reference to a controversy surrounding the Phils "stealing" Tug McGraw's old catchphrase "Ya Gotta Believe!", Christie said "Ya gotta believe what? Ya gotta believe we're awful people, that's what ya gotta believe."
It's probably not the best idea to bash a fan base that makes up a good percentage of the residents of the state you were elected to govern...but I guess when your approval rating is a hilariously low 18-percent, you just stop caring altogether.
