“I just wanted to meet you and just hope you start to like us,” said Snooki, ice-grilling the governor.

“Well, we’ll do our best,” Christie responded in a moment captured on video by the Asbury Park Press.

The loud-mouthed diva also asked the girthy gov, “Why are you standing so close to me?”

Castmate Deena Cortese at one point tried to defuse the tension by telling Christie she’s a Jersey girl. But he snapped, “I know you are, I was talking about her."

An exasperated Snooki, 25, then turned to the camera and said “He just doesn’t like us."

I told you. Cue mirthless laugh from God. [NYDN; lede image via Instagram]
