An exhausted and droopy-eyed Chris Christie joined the “Fox & Friends” crew Tuesday morning to give a rundown of the storm damage to his state of New Jersey. And while most of the conversation was about the devastation and how the state was reacting during the difficult time, Christie did let his trademarked fiery spirit show when one anchor tried to throw presidential politics into the mix.
After talking about what was being done in response to Hurricane Sandy, host Steve Doocy asked about rumors that Mitt Romney would be accompanying Christie to tour the damage. That’s when the governor let loose.
“I have no idea nor am I the least bit concerned or interested,” Christie said. “I’ve got a job to do here in New Jersey that’s much bigger than presidential politics, and I could care less about any of that stuff. I have a job to do, I’ve got 2.4 million people out of power, I’ve got devastation on the shore, I’ve got floods in the northern part of my state. If you think right now I give a damn about presidential politics then you don’t know me.”
