Chris Christie: Eagles 'suck' and their fans are 'angry, awful people'

New Jersey Governor and Jerry Jones lackey Chris Christie has not been shy about expressing his love of the Dallas Cowboys and, in turn, his hatred of all things Philadelphia Eagles. 

So perhaps it shouldn't come as much of a surprise that just a few days after his beloved 'Boys were eliminated from the playoffs by Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers, Christie was out there trashing the Birds -- and their fans, many of whom live in the state he was elected to serve. [Sorry, South Jersey Eagles fans, but this may hurt a little more coming from your own governor.]

On Wednesday, Christie co-hosted WFAN’s Boomer And Carton Show. Here's what he had to say about the Eagles, via

“I understand why people are interested if you are a public figure, as to who you root for,” Christie said on WFAN on Wednesday. “They’re interested. But the hostility, I will tell you that I take for being a Cowboys fan — and this is what I say to Giants fans all the time, and Eagles fans. Now Eagles fans I understand it from a little more because the Eagles do suck and they’ve sucked for a long time. And their fans are generally angry, awful people.” 

. . .

“If they want to take some anger out at me, I’m all—I have no problem with it at all,” Christie said of Eagles fans on 94WIP in 2014. “They’re passionate, wild fans and they wanna get angry with me, that’s OK. But the one thing they can’t say, is that I don’t tell them the truth. And the truth is, I’m a Cowboys fan. 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?” []

Can't imagine why they wouldn't be happy, Chris. Might have something to do with you calling them things like "angry, awful people," but I'm no expert.
