Chris Christie Mic-Checked by Occupy Protesters in Des Moines
New Jersey governor Chris Christie was mic-checked by Occupy protesters yesterday at a Des Moines, Iowa. Christie seems relatively unfazed as the protesters chant "Put people first" (we think that's what they're saying, at least).
"You're so angry, aren't you," he says. "Work it all out for yourselves."
He goes on: "Hey listen, you know what? We're used to dealing with jokers like this in New Jersey all the time. Don't you worry about it." Well played.
