Chris “Revel” Christie goes after Manish Mehta Dan Leberfeld

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie went after Manish Mehta on WFAN this morning.

“Idiot. The guy’s a complete idiot,” Christie said. “Self-consumed, underpaid, reporter … the only way he’s empowered is because we’re spending all this time talking about Manish Mehta this morning … Who, by the way, I couldn’t pick out of a lineup and no Jets fan gives a damn about Manish Mehta … We shouldn’t be giving this dope, you know, the amount of airtime we’ve given him already.”

New Jersey has the largest population of immigrants from India in the country.

You have to wonder how this vicious attack on an Indian will play in state.
