Joy Behar Shows Chris Christie Has Thin Skin...and is a Big Bully

So Chris Christie attended a roast to celebrate Brendan Byrne's 90th birthday. Byrne was the state’s governor from 1974 to 1982. But apparently, The speakers aimed much of their fire at Christie. For example, one said
“It really is an honor to be standing next to what could be the next President of the—. I’m sorry, these are the wrong notes. I’m doing a roast next week with Jeb Bush.” -Vince August, comedian

Christe pretty much glared at the speakers. But here is what is most interesting and shows his character. Joy Behar,the former co-host of “The View, was one of the roasters. One of her quotes is as follows, which seemed to really set Christie off:
“When I first heard that he was accused of blocking off three lanes on the bridge, I said, ‘What the hell is he doing, standing in the middle of the bridge?” -Joy Behar
"After another barb, Christie interrupted her. “This is a Byrne roast,” he said. He stood up and tried to grab her notes. The audience laughed awkwardly. “Stop bullying me,” Behar said as he sat down. Christie said something out of earshot and Behar responded, “Why don’t you get up here at the microphone instead of being such a coward?” Christie stood up again and moved in front of the lectern as Behar retreated.  “At least I don’t get paid for this,” he said.

Christie sat down and Behar continued, though she was noticeably rattled. “I really don’t know about the Presidency,” she said. “Let me put it to you this way, in a way that you’d appreciate: You’re toast.”

Christie seems to relish intimidating women, as he did not stand up when the males were speaking. He also shows how thin of a skin he has, as most bullies do.

Not his finest hour. Bravo to Joy though!
