Chris Christie goes on berserk rant against Donald Trump during CNN interview

 July 17, 2023

Former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, who is running for the Republican presidential nomination, went on an unhinged rant against former President Donald Trump during an interview on CNN on Sunday.

Christie stated that Trump was a "liar and a coward” for claiming to be a shield for the rest of the Republican Party.

At a recent campaign rally, Trump claimed, "Every time the radical left Democrats, Marxists, Communists and Fascists indict me, I consider it to be a great badge of honor and courage. I’m doing it for you. I’m being indicted for you. Better me than you, right?”

Anchor Jake Tapper referenced that and asked Christie, “Great badge of honor and courage. Better me than you. What do you make of that?”

Christie responded by saying, "He’s liar and a coward. He’s not getting indicted for anyone other than because of his own conduct. There’s no other of the 200 million Americans he spoke about who illegally retained classified national secrets after being asked politely, quietly, and professionally for 18 months to voluntarily turn them back over after he left the White House."

Of course, Christie missed Trump's point that any Republican who is a threat to Democrats will be treated like the former president no matter their innocence. Christie doesn't understand this because he isn't a threat to Democrats and has virtually no shot at becoming president.
