William Brown is a college student in New Jersey who was concerned about a merger of his college with another. Like many students he was worried about whether the new merger would be supportive of adult learners and their needs. He posed some questions at a meeting with Governor Chris Christie and was told that he was “an idiot.” After the meeting the governor was informed that Mr. Brown was a former member of the SEALs who had served his nation.
Response from Governor Christie: “He acted like an idiot. He’s an idiot. I don’t have any regrets at all.” Mr. Brown was asked to comment. He said: “I didn’t mean to be disrespectful to the governor, and if it came across that way, I apologize.”
Chubby little Chris Christie would never consider serving his nation. His comment is outrageous toward a man who has risked his life for this country.
