Transcript for Chris Christie Confronts Protestor at Superstorm Sandy Event
And New Jersey governor Chris Christie lashing out on the stump. At an event marking two years since hurricane sandy. This is signature Christie. Some love it, some don't. Reporter: It's been awhile since we saw an eruption like this one, but it was classic Chris Christie. It's why some people love him. I read it. Reporter: And why some hate him. Turn around. Reporter: Chris Christie got tough with a protester Wednesday during what was supposed to be a victory lap heralding the rebuilding of the Jersey shore on the second anniversary of superstorm sandy. Someone like you who doesn't know a damn thing except to show up when the cameras are here. I've been here with the cameras weren't here and did the work. So listen, you want to have a conversation later, I'm happy to have it, buddy. But until that time, sit down and shut up. Reporter: But that protester said he hasn't done enough to help storm victims. The governor has been known for his outbursts. Did I stay on topic? Are you stupid? You conduct yours like that in the courtroom, your rear end will get thrown in jail. I don't care about election day, I don't give a lick. Reporter: But he's a presidential candidate. His blunt style was in contrast to new grandmother and likely candidate Hillary Clinton showed campaigning in Wednesday. All of a sudden, she reaches this little finger up to my mouth, she goes, no sing, mommy, no sing. Reporter: He likes a good back and forth, Christie said, and there's plenty of Jersey in him. There's no doubt about that. Less clear is how that style would play in a presidential campaign. Stay tuned. All right, Jonathan, thank you.
