WATCH: Chris Christie Takes A Tumble In Sports Radio Host’s Revenge Video

One recent poll showed that a huge majority of New Jersey residents couldn’t have cared less that Gov. Chris Christie (R) pledged allegiance to the Dallas Cowboys football team.

But one New Jerseyan, who happens to be a sports radio host, cared very much.

Angelo Cataldi, who hosts a sports talk radio show on Philadelphia’s WIP, released a never-before-seen video Friday of Christie tumbling out of his chair during their June 2014 interview.

His motivation? Cataldi “was appalled by Christie’s decision to cheer for his beloved Dallas Cowboys in owner Jerry Jones’ box during the team’s playoff run, including during Week 15’s Cowboys-Eagles game in Philadelphia.”

Perhaps Cataldi had read that Christie reportedly called Eagles fans “the worst in America,” too.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
