PHILADELPHIA (CBS) -- Gov. Chris Christie has some not-so-kind words for Philadelphia fans again.
This time he targeted, specifically, the Phillies and their fan base.
Just one month after calling Eagles fans "angry, awful people," Christie -- a Mets fan -- was on SportsNet New York on Wednesday night and said this about the Phillies.
"The Phillies suck," Christie said on SNY. "Let's just start with that. They're from Philadelphia. They're an awful team. They're an angry, bitter fan base and it's not safe for civilized people to go to Citizens Bank Park if you want to root for the other team. Ya gotta Believe what? Ya gotta believe we're awful people!"
Later on Thursday, the Phillies subtly fired back at Christie.
Phillies president Andy MacPhail responded to Christie's comments, per Howard Eskin.
