New Jersey Governor Chris Christie responded to New York City mayor Bill de Blasio, after the New York Mayor told Christie that he should be in New Jersey to respond to the snow storm.
“This is a guy who still doesn’t have his streets plowed,” Christie quipped during a radio interview with Sean Hannity yesterday. “Maybe he should have the New Jersey folks come over and clean New York City. We’re all done in New Jersey and we’d be happy to come over and help him.”
Christie said de Blasio “has shown himself to be inept at almost everything.”
“You’re friends with de Blasio,” Christie told Hannity. “If he needs help I’ll send him some plows over there.”
“Yeah just charge him double,” Hannity quipped. “Price gouging against de Blasio. He’s a big spread the wealth guy. Why not?”
De Blasio came under fire after he lectured New Yorkers in Queens for the snow clearing problems yesterday.
“So much snow accumulated, that a front end loader comes through, the residents go to clear the cars, and they literally reblock their streets inadvertently,” he said.
He also suggested that car owners should let the sun melt the snow off their cars, rather than shoveling it into the street.
“Let Mother Nature help you,” he said. “This is a common sense matter.”
