New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie says “You’d have to be stupid” to go to Las Vegas during the summer when Atlantic City is so much cooler.

Christie made the comment during a press conference to introduce John Palmieri as the new executive director of the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority, which oversees Atlantic City’s revitalization to better compete with casinos in nearby states.

In response to Christie’s diss, Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority spokesman Vince Alberta said Christie wasn’t completely wrong.

“Gov. Christie is right about one thing: Las Vegas is the hottest destination on the planet,” Alberta said. “We’ve got the hottest clubs, the hottest restaurants and the hottest entertainment.”
