Any time a politician gets “irked,” it’s probably a good time for a deep breath before speaking. Several reporters who attended a New Hampshire rally today for GOP presidential candidate and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie have taken away one soundbite from the event, and that is of Christie asking a young woman if he wants her to go down to New Jersey “with a mop” to assist with flooding in the state.
Christie gets irked when a NH voter asks why he’s not in NJ for floods. “You want me to go down there with a mop?” https://t.co/CHD3W4WXTI

Christie, to question about flood response: "I don’t know what you expect me to do, you want me to go down with a mop?"
