Gov. Chris Christie got caught Sunday having a private beach party at a Jersey Shore park that he closed to the public. The New York Post reports that Christie and company were lounging at Berkeley Township’s Island. The New York Beach State Park was among the public facilities Christie shut down because of a budget standoff he is having with state legislators.
During a press conference held later Sunday, Christie denied he got any sun Sunday:
When asked by reporters in Trenton if he got to enjoy the clear summer day, the governor demurred.
“I didn’t,” he said. “I didn’t get any sun today.”
When told about pictures of the beach party Christie’s spokesman claimed the governor’s baseball hat shielded him from any rays:
“He did not get any sun. He had a baseball hat on,” the spokesman, Brian Murray, told NJ.com.
Christie is worse than Obama who outrageously barricaded open air facilities such as the World War II Memorial and even the Grand Canyon in a childish effort to cause pain on his constituents hoping there would then pressure their representatives to do Obama’s bidding.
But not even Obama had the audacity to shove the closures in the face of citizens by actually visiting any of the closed federal facilities he forced to close while citizens were not permitted to use them.
People certainly don’t appreciate it when so-called leaders attempt to inflict pain on them for a political vendetta such as trying to seal off open air “facilities.” They will like it, and Gov. Christie, even less for using the facility he closed while Cub Scouts and other citizens were forced to leave a state park campsite.
After the bridgegate scandal and Christie’s failed presidential run his support in New Jersey has collapsed and he is now the country’s least popular governor.
