Gov. Christie calls Phillies' fans "angry" and "bitter", team responds

Is President Trump Considering Chris Christie for Drug Czar?

Christie was asked to respond to the Phillies posting the famous Tug McGraw mantra "Ya Gotta Believe" in the hallway of their spring training facility, given that those words have always been associated with the Mets. "Ya gotta believe we're terrible people!"

Earlier this year, Christie tweaked Eagles fans during an appearance on WFAN's "Boomer and Carton Show" by calling them "generally angry, very bad people".

Look, I'm not saying Phils fans, and Philadelphia fans in general, aren't bitter.

"The Phillies suck", the governor said.

"It's not safe for civilized people to go to Citizens Bank Park if you want to root for the other team", Christie said. Still, that matchup left a searing impression on Mr. Christie.

Given Christie's undeniable history of opposing drug and cannabis law reform - even for medical use - the cannabis community quickly went into a bit of a panic at this possibility.

McGraw coined the phrase while with the Mets before he came to Philadelphia and helped the Phils win a championship in 1980.

Chris Christie joined President Donald Trump for a White House a midday meal Tuesday less than 24 hours after national security adviser Michael Flynn was asked to resign after misleading Vice President Mike Pence. "Whether it's something I'll do when I get out, I've got to start thinking about that".

"But these guys?" he added of Eagles fans. Her aide, Novella Hinson, plugged the local favorite, the Philadelphia Eagles. Brennan based his complaint on testimony during that trial, which he said shows Christie lied about when he knew about the alleged plot or its motives. "I've said it since I've ran for Governor in '09, never hid it from anybody, and so, I don't understand why they're angry about me being happy about my team winning?"
