Chris Christie Upset About His Time Cover

Chris Christie isn’t a big fan of Time‘s depiction of him on its cover. While we said the cover — which featured Christie’s mug alongside copy reading “The Boss” — was alluding to his handling of Hurricane Sandy relief and his ties to Bruce Springsteen, Christie felt otherwise.

“I’m reporting Time magazine to the anti-Italian defamation league,” Christie said on Don Imus’ radio show. “I mean look at that thing. It says ‘boss’ underneath. I mean, come on. I can’t wait for that to come home for my kids to see it.”

Richard Stengel, Time’s managing editor, was surprised that Christie was so upset.

The New York Post reports that Stengel told MSNBC, “If his kids don’t recognize him as the boss then he has more problems then he realizes. But I think he’s having some fun with it. We had some fun with it.”

Stengel better watch what he says. We hear Christie knows people. We’re not saying, we’re just saying.
