Unfortunately, the beleaguered governor couldn't get away from the troubles plaguing him at home. After a Cubs fan heckled him, Christie couldn't take it anymore.

Rule Number 1 - Don't talk shit to Chris Christie when he hasn't had a single one of his nachos yet

"[He] was yelling at me," Joseph told WISN. "First he told me, 'Why don't you have another beer?' which I thought was a decent comeback, and I thought that was kind of funny. Then he started calling me a tough guy."

Not a chip was sacrificed.

I'll give Chris Christie this, him not spilling his nachos just once is highly impressive. https://t.co/hmTgnqqzH2

Relationship goals?

"Don't ever again question Chris Christie's humanity after seeing him cradle those nachos like a mother primate cradling its young."
