    Former GOP presidential primary candidate Chris Christie balked at endorsing current candidate Nikki Haley in a Tuesday interview on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” “Look, imagine the position I’d be in if I endorsed someone who then turned around and endorsed Donald Trump,” Christie told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos. “I’m not gonna be put in that spot again, George. I made a decision in 2016, the only time in my political career, where I endorsed someone purely for political reasons, even though I had some misgivings.” “And that’s when I endorsed Donald Trump,” Christie continued. “And it was the biggest mistake I’ve...

The Associated Press said Christie could have been saying DeSantis was worried he would endorse former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley. About Haley, Christie said she is "going to get smoked," and that "she's not up to this." Newsweek reached out to Christie's campaign...

Partial transcript as follows: WHOOPI GOLDBERG: I mean, you’ve seen what the lengths that the people have gone through to make sure his feet don’t touch the ground.

    Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is in the 2024 presidential race to stay. Just ask him. In a new ad released digitally on Thursday, the 61-year-old directly responded to recent calls for him to withdraw and clear the field for a more popular alternative to former President Donald Trump. “Some people say I should drop out of this race. Really? I’m the only one saying Donald Trump is a liar,” Christie said, looking directly at the camera. The White House hopeful — who has focused his long-shot campaign on New Hampshire — will go on air Friday in the...

    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.

Ron DeSantis for...

    Chris Christie partly blamed his onetime friend Donald Trump for the spike in antisemitism and Islamophobia across the country. The former New Jersey governor posited that Trump’s language has emboldened others to act hatefully. “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,” Christie told CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday. “And that’s been going on for quite some time, not just with Donald Trump, but with university professors on some of our most elite campuses in this country.”

    The money must be good. Turncoat RINO Chris Christie told FOX News host Howie Kurtz on Sunday that he will start stalking President Trump. Christie made the announcement after he lied about Trump for over a minute straight without any pushback from the FOX host. Christie said he will start stalking President Trump if the 45th President does not attend a GOP debate where one-percenters like Christie and Turncoat Mike Pence can attack him on a national stage.

    In 2018, former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie procured a beachfront property in Bay Head for $2.9 million. Not stopping there, he poured millions more into demolishing the original structure, erecting a more majestic residence in its place over the next four years. The real estate's value has since soared, currently estimated at over $5.5 million on Zillow.While Christie's ambitions have recently shifted towards the White House, questions surround how the Republican candidate is financing such lavish expenses. Since vacating the governor's seat, his official earnings seem hardly sufficient. The annual salary for a New Jersey governor stands at $175,000....

    Republican presidential candidate Chris Christie said Tuesday he would have prosecuted former President Trump over his mishandling of classified documents and alleged efforts to block the results of the 2020 election. “I would have prosecuted the documents case, absolutely,” Christie said in an interview on Newsmax’s “The Balance.” “I would not have prosecuted the case in New York, and I said that at the time.” “I would have prosecuted the Jan. 6 matter, but I would not have prosecuted the Atlanta matter against Donald Trump; I think it was unnecessary to do so,” he added. Christie, who is the former...

    Krispy Kreme has apologized following criticism of its new campaign that included a highly offensive racial slur. The iconic doughnut brand came under fire over its new campaign, made by creative agency Abel in collaboration with Limehouse Production, encouraging customers to pick up a box of their doughnuts for major celebrations. The campaign features four spots that aim to make Krispy Kreme doughnuts the star of celebrations like sports events, birthday parties, or major life milestones. In the short spots, the doughnuts replace the letter “o” in words like “footy,” “movie,” and “hooray.” But one shows doughnuts popping up to...

    Former Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL), now a CNN contributor, said Monday on CNN’s “The Situation Room” that former President Donald Trump was “scared to death” to debate his Republican primary rival, former Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ). Kinzinger said, “If he was the incumbent running for reelection— you know if this was 2020, like I get that, but he lost. He lost for the Republicans, the presidency. The Republicans have done nothing but lose since Donald Trump, and so I think if he’s gonna ask for their vote he needs to come in front of them again and explain why this...

Anchor Jake Tapper said, “Was January 6 and the build up to it, the lies, was that the end of it for you? Because I just wonder, in an alternate universe where Donald Trump accepts he lost to Joe Biden in 2020, spends the next whatever he has, month and a half, talking about the Abraham Accords, talking about Operation...

    I offered to help prep Chris Christie for the debate with Donald Trump. Christie helped prep Trump in 2016, saying he played Hillary Clinton very aggressively so that Trump would think the real thing was “a cakewalk.” And now, sitting at a table in the Times cafeteria with the former New Jersey governor, I figured I could play Trump. We have both known the blackguard for decades. And let’s be honest. We want Christie on that wall. After years of watching Republicans cower before Trump, it’s bracing to see the disgraced former president finally meet his mean match. Even my...
