An angry Chris Christie has been caught on camera getting up into a Chicago Cubs fan’s face while holding a bowl of nachos after he was jeered. The New Jersey Governor was in Milwaukee at Miller Stadium on Sunday afternoon for the Cubs-Brewers game.
Footage shows him leaning in just inches from the fan’s face in the stands as he balanced the tray of loaded nachos. The video was posted on Twitter by WISN journalist Ben Hutchinson who said Christie was being ‘razzed’ by some in the crowd.
It captured the end of what appeared to be a heated confrontation with the baseball fan.
‘Yeah, you’re a big shot,’ Christie could be heard saying.
He then pulled back and walked away down the stairs to his seat with his nachos still in tact. “I appreciate that,” the fan replied as Christie retreated.
Other fans surrounding the man could be heard laughing loudly as Christie got within inches of his face.
Christie was also booed at a Mets game in New York earlier this month. He was heckled after he caught a foul ball while sitting in the third row in the third inning without even getting out of his seat.
Christie celebrated the left-hand catch with awkward high-fives and an enthusiastic handshake with a friend before turning to give the ball to a child who was sitting in the rows behind him.
