Gov. Chris Christie berates clueless beachgoers to “Get the hell off the beach” before Hurricane Irene hits NJ
Watch as New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie tells clueless beachgoers to “Get the hell off the beach” before Hurricane Irene hits the Garden State:
Transcript of Gov. Christie’s remarks:
“So to folks again…You know, I saw some of these news feeds that we were watching upstairs of people sitting on the beach in Asbury Park. Get the hell off the beach in Asbury Park and get out. You’re done. It’s 4:30 p.m. You’ve maximized your tan. Get off the beach. Get in your cars and get out of those areas.
“You know, it amazes me that you have responsible elected officials from North Carolina north through Massachusetts along with National Weather Service folks telling you that this is going to be an enormous storm and for New Jersey something we haven’t seen in over 60 years. Do not waste any more time working on your tan. Get off the beach. Get out of your beach houses and get to safer ground either in your own homes – if this is a vacation home or rental for you – or if it’s your primary residence then get with friends or relatives or co-workers and be housed there.”
