What does the governor of New Jersey think of hit MTV show “Jersey Shore?”
Not much, as it turns it.
Jake Tapper, host of ABC News’ This Week, asked Gov. Chris Christie what he thought of Snooki and her crew in an EXCLUSIVE interview.
Christie said MTV’s Jersey Shore is a net “Negative for New Jersey. I mean, because what it does is takes a bunch of New Yorkers — most of the people on Jersey Shore” are New Yorkers … [and] drops them at the Jersey Shore, and tries to make Americans feel like this is New Jersey.” 
“I can tell people, they want to know what New Jersey really is? I welcome them to come to New Jersey anytime,” Christie told Tapper. 
The governor then exhorted people to vacation in his state.
“The Jersey Shore is a beautiful place.  And [it's] some place that everybody should come on vacation this summer.  We’ve got another 6 weeks or so of summer left.  Come to New Jersey!” he said.
