WILLIAM BROWN: My question for you, governor, is please consider veteran students and [unclear] ike myself, here in South Jersey.
GOV. CHRIS CHRISTIE: Heres whats going to happen. Rutgers is going to merge with Rowan, and heres why: What Im doing is providing other opportunities for a bigger and better university.
CHRISTIE: If you decide what you want to do is put on a show today, let me tell you something, I can go back and forth with you as much as you want. And let me tell you something, after you graduate from law school, you conduct yourself like that in a court room, your rear-ends gonna get thrown in jail, idiot.
CHRISTIE: You know, I tried to be patient with the guy. Every time I tried to answer, he started yelling over me again. Damn, man, Im governor, could you just shut up for a second?
Hard to believe that’s a complete transcript of the confrontation.
Christie sounded like Barney Frank there.
