  • Christie Vows to Continue Doomed Campaign to the Bitter End

    Every viable political candidate needs a plausible path to victory. There’s never much been one for 2024 presidential aspirant Chris Christie. A two-term New Jersey governor who was emphatically unpopular in the Garden State when he left office in 2018, Christie also bombed as a presidential candidate in 2016, finishing ninth in Iowa and sixth in New Hampshire. He managed to stay in the national limelight for a while by first toadying to and then disrespecting Donald Trump. But he entered the 2024 race with a really bad reputation among Republicans, particularly the MAGA majority. One national survey taken right...

    Former New Jersey governor and 2024 Republican presidential candidate Chris Christie appeared to excuse antisemitism as a natural reaction to the “intolerant” rhetoric and actions of his main rival, current frontrunner former President Donald Trump. As Breitbart News reported:Anchor Dana Bash said, “I want to ask about the spike in hate against Jews in the United States. You told The New York Times that you believe Trump has contributed to this.” Christie said, “When you show intolerance towards everyone, which is what he does, you give permission as a leader for others to have their intolerance come out. Intolerance towards...

    Former Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ), a candidate for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination, said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that X CEO Elon Musk endorsing an antisemitic tweet is an “outrageous type of hate.” Anchor Kristen Welker said, “Let me ask you about Elon Musk, who is making some waves. He was criticized this week for endorsing a post on his own platform X where a user accused Jewish people of hating white people, which, as you know, is an antisemitic conspiracy theory. Vivek Ramaswamy said. it’s crazy to call Musk antisemitic. What was your reaction to Elon Musk?”

    2024 GOP presidential candidate Chris Christie predicted former President Trump will be a convicted felon by spring 2024. In an interview Thursday on CNN’s “The Lead” with Jake Tapper, Christie suggested America’s founding fathers would never had predicted a convicted felon could run for the presidency. If they had, Christie argued, they would have specifically banned felons from the presidency. In a discussion about Trump’s top two GOP rivals — former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis — Christie recalled a question posed by moderators in the first debate.

Andy Beshear over Republican nominee Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron, 2024 GOP presidential hopeful former Gov.

He was embraced by him and embraced Trump himself. Was that a mistake on his part?”

    Former Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ), a candidate for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination, said Wednesday on FNC’s “Your World” that because of legal issues, the Republican Party needed to pick someone other than former President Donald Trump as its 2024 nominee. Christie said, “The walls are closing in around him. I understand that, and more importantly, he understands that. I was there in 2020 when Mark Meadows was chief of staff, regularly preparing Donald Trump for the debates against Joe Biden. I can tell you that Mark Meadows was velcroed to Donald Trump’s hip in the White House at that...

    Republican presidential candidate Chris Christie argued on Monday that former President Trump’s current lead in the 2024 GOP primary race is “fatally flawed.” During an appearance on MSNBC, host Stephanie Ruhle asked the former New Jersey governor why Trump remains the front-runner despite the legal battles he’s currently facing. “Look, I think that he’s the nominee twice in the last eight years, there’s a lot of folks who still think that sticking with Donald Trump is the way the best way to beat Joe Biden,” Christie said. “I think that’s fatally flawed on a couple of fronts.”

    Republican presidential candidate Chris Christie said the House GOP’s struggle to elect a Speaker is “an embarrassment to the party.” The House has gone three weeks without a Speaker after eight Republicans joined with Democrats to vote out Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.). Since then, the GOP has been unable to unify around a single candidate. Democrats have remain unified around their leader, Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.). “We’ve gotten through two nominees of the party since Kevin McCarthy, it’s an embarrassment,” Christie said in an interview MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle. “It’s an embarrassment to the party and to the country. And my...

Judge Tanya Chutkan agreed Monday to impose a “narrow” gag order prohibiting the former president from attacking witnesses, prosecutors, court staff and their families involved in his Jan. 6 election interference case. Asked about Trump calling the gag order “unconstitutional,” Christie told former White House press secretary Jen Psaki: “Look, this is the awful temperament of the guy who is currently the front-runner for the domination of my party.”

According to the former Republican New Jersey governor, helping Ukraine is helping us. “It’s awfully pathetic,” he said. “And the reason why that there’s not even more universal support among the American people is we have a pathetic president of the United States who will not make the case for Ukraine because he can’t.
