(NEW YORK) — Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, the Garden State’s unofficial ambassador at large, has some choice words for embattled Gov. Chris Christie.
Echoing the sentiments of many people across the state, Snooki wondered if Christie was a demanding bully trying to scapegoat staffers accused of meting out retribution against a Democratic mayor.
“Is it Billy goat, Bully Goat or Scapegoat? #ChristiesTrollBridge #threebillygoatsgruff,” Polizzi tweeted.
In an exclusive comment to ABC News, when asked if she’d support Christie in a 2016 White House bid, Polizzi said, “Well it’s obvious he wouldn’t have my vote! Pretty sure he would exile me!”
Polizzi, former star of “Jersey Shore” and author of “Baby Bumps,” has clashed with Christie in past.
Christie, a Republican, once called the MTV reality show “negative for New Jersey,” and when the governor gave the cast the cold shoulder last May in Seaside Heights, N.J., Polizzi said of the encounter, “He just doesn’t like us.”
Now its Polizzi’s turn to beat up on the governor. Christie on Thursday morning apologized for a growing scandal in which it was revealed that top aides had willfully caused traffic problems in Fort Lee, N.J., in retaliation against the town’s mayor, who supported the Democrat candidate in last year’s gubernatorial election.
