Chris Christie confronts heckler, nachos in one hand

A bowl of nachos is all that stood between an angry Gov. Chris Christie and a Cubs fan during a confrontation at a baseball game yesterday.

Christie went to see the Brewers face off against the Cubs in Milwaukee without realizing he’d have a face-off of his own with a heckler.

Brad Joseph said he noticed the governor walking up the stairs when he yelled Christie’s name, telling him he sucked. “I called him a hypocrite because I thought it needed to be said,” Joseph told WISN. “He turned around back toward me and got in my face for what seemed like a long time, but was probably only about 30 seconds or a minute.”

It was at that moment that Joseph says Christie yelled back at him, asking, “Why don’t you have another beer?” and called him a tough guy. A video tweeted that afternoon by a bystander showed the governor hunched over only inches from Joseph’s face, nachos in hand, when he can be heard saying to the fan, “You’re a big shot.”

It is unclear how the incident will impact Christie’s approval rating, which was evaluated at a mere 15 percent last month, an all-time low.
