New Jersey Governor Chris Christie + Snooki Really Don’t Like Each Other [VIDEO, PHOTO]

Familiar backgrounds don’t mean jack to New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and Snooki.

The Garden State icons met — on camera — and to say the pint-sized ‘Jersey Shore’ starlet wasn’t a fan of the portly, possibly presidential hopeful is an understatement.

Christie’s disdain for ‘Jersey Shore’ is well-known — back in 2011, he said the MTV show “does nothing more than perpetuate misconceptions about the state and its citizens.” But he’d never met its stars before.

Snooki, with Jenni ‘J-Woww’ Farley in tow, and Christie finally met up on the Seaside Heights boardwalk after they each filmed separate segments for the ‘Today’ show.

During the awkward exchange, Snooki, visibly uncomfortable, asks Christie, “Why are you standing so close to me?” The governor jokingly leans in closer to the reality starlet, which clearly peeves her.

While Snooki’s co-star Deena Cortese complimented Christie on his handling of Hurricane Sandy, Snooki was more direct and sassy with him. “We just wanted to meet you,” she said, “and hope that maybe you start to like us.”

Christie’s somewhat smarmy but amusing reply? “We’ll do our best,” he said shaking each of the girls hands. “Good to meet you.”

As soon as Christie turned his head, Snooki couldn’t hide her own disgust. “He just doesn’t like us.”

She later tweeted the still below with the caption, “Getting told why we are bad for Jersey. Amazing.”

Cameras seemed to have missed that part, probably the same way they missed all of her sober moments on ‘Jersey Shore.’ (Read: It probably never happened.)
