Chris Christie WFAN Audition Goes How You’d Expect: Caller Labels Him ‘Fat-A**’

  • Rick Chandler


So Chris Christie wants to replace the soon-to-retire Mike Francesa on WFAN — Christie leaves office in January, and is a noted sports fan.

But here’s an obvious drawback — Christie is also a noted Dallas Cowboys fan. How will that go over with the New York Giants-loving masses? Oh, and he also roots for the New England Patriots. Make a note of it, Jets fans.

Christie had an in-chair audition on WFAN on Monday, and even wore his Cowboys hat. But unfortunately he also wore his notoriously thin skin, which one caller — Mike from Montclair (aka Mike Goldstein) — took delight in poking.

“Governor, next time you want to sit on a beach that is closed to the entire world but you, you get your fat ass in a car and go to one that is open to all of your constituents, not just you and yours,” the caller said.

He’s referring of course to beachgate.

This provoked a fiery exchange in which Christie called Mike “a communist” and “a bum.” Mike responded by saying that Christie was a bully. “And I hate bullies.”

And here’s where Christie showed that he has a lot to learn. After Mike asked the governor “What have you done?”, Christie cut him off … then continued to rip him.

That’s a move straight from the bully playbook — it’s like punching a guy who can’t fight back. If you cut off a caller, then end the topic. Otherwise you look like you can’t handle the job.
