Chris Christie Piles On Trump — As Only Chris Christie Can

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 9:30 am



Perhaps no Trump surrogate is more infamous for sticking with Donald Trump through thick and thin than Chris Christie. Yet Christie has remained silent about Trump’s “grab them by the p***y” comments — until now. Today, Christie has called the comments “completely indefensible” and says he would have apologized differently than Trump. But, because he is Chris Christie and therefore a repulsive toadie, he is quick to say he still supports Trump (unsurprising) and that he believes Trump is truly sorry (come on):

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie still supports Donald Trump even though he finds the Republican presidential candidate’s sexually aggressive comments “completely indefensible.”

Christie on Tuesday for the first time publicly addressed what Trump has described as “locker room talk” during an appearance on New York City sports radio station WFAN-AM.

In the 2005 recording released Friday, Trump is heard saying he can grab, kiss and “do anything” with women because he is famous. He has denied that he’s ever grabbed women without their consent.

Christie says he made it clear to Trump on Friday that kind of talk, even in private, is unacceptable and the candidate had to be contrite and apologetic.

Christie says he would have apologized differently, but he believes Trump is sorry and embarrassed.

Nobody believes Trump is truly sorry. Nobody. But when you’re a potential candidate for the highest law enforcement office in the land, apparently you have to regularly exercise your lying muscles to keep them in good working order. Just ask Eric Holder or Loretta Lynch. Bug-eyed Rudy got the jump on Christie this weekend, acting as Trump’s designated spokesliar on all the Sunday shows. Christie has some catch-up to do.

If I had to give Christie some advice, I would say: don’t go half-assed on us now, Chris. The whole “dignity” ship sailed long ago. Now is the time to show full-on loyalty. Just imagine you’re standing right behind Donald Trump and let your natural instinct for supplication take over.

  3. I’m sorry? Did you use the word “dignity” in connection with Governor Christie? P’raps it was a typo?

  4. I’m still preferring the guy who will call a bomb a bomb. As theatrical as his progress on earth may be, he’s not got an army of media stage managing his perfection, eliding all his flaws and bad acts.

    Hillary is all the more dangerous because of this force field of falsity around her, with people not content to choose, reluctantly, by platform instead of person. They have to call her good. This is enraging. Hillary is incompetent, negligent, attacks the first amendment for self-serving reasons, a criminal. Her a it-woman acts aren’t just hypocritical, they are calculating, malicious, and above all else, weak. A strong person would have taken her losses from a breech with a rapist and general grab-ass and one (or six)-free-groper, whatever his rising political star might have offered. She is a coward, a moral coward, who will always always cover up and defend her own evil.

  5. Voting for Hillary because of her “competence” and “goodness” is the most up dignified act possible for a voter.

    True. If it were Christie-vs-Clinton, I could consider voting against Clinton.

  9. Hucakbee’s take: “”A lot of these bed-wetting, hand-wringing Republicans — they’re not afraid Donald Trump is gonna lose. They’re scared to death he’s gonna win…And if he wins, he’s going to mess up the neat little package of fun they have because they all play to the donor class, and Donald Trump is coming to make big changes in the way that these institutions go…

    It’s not a big surprise that he is crude and he is vulgar. We all knew that. We knew he wasn’t a Sunday school teacher… Nobody’s endorsing what he said. My gosh, not even his own family is endorsing it…

    He’s like Captain Quint in the original movie ‘Jaws,’… “He’s vulgar, he’s salty … He’s the guy who’s gonna save your butt and save your family. … Hillary is the shark. She’s going to eat your boat, she’s going to have open borders, immigration out the kazoo. “

  10. So, when is Rince Priebus going to take responsibility for the party meltdown and resign? The candidate he defended at every turn has done everything his detractors said he would.

    Now Trump has declared he’s going to suicide against the GOP because they won’t roll over for him one more time. Oh, wait, they DID roll over for him yesterday and STILL he’s strapping on the bomb-vest.

    Priebus needs to be gone, the RNC needs to officially vote this guy off the ticket, and replace him, with whomever. Dead Richard Nixon would be an improvement.

  13. Trump may be a horse’s ass but he is right about one thing: Hillary should be in prison.

  14. Trump may regret that, as it opens the door for her to find some tax charge against him.

    There is nothing stopping that now. They have exploited the IRS against their opponents every time they found it convenient.

  17. “that kind of talk, even in private, is unacceptable” Who the f&cking hell is Chris Christie, or any other blowhard pol, to tell me what is acceptable to say in _private_? Don’t I get enough of that thoughtcrime crap from the Dems and the SJWs and the universities and the comedian court jesters and the news media? Do I need _Republicans_ to lecture me now on PC crimespeak?

    I had intended to write in Jeff Sessions for POTUS, and straight Republican ticket below that. You know what? Since about half the Republican Party turned into tissue-clutching Democrats in the last four days, I’m not going to vote Republican ever again in my life. F&ck those cowardly disloyal dishonest pr!cks. You know and I know, almost every one of them has talked dirtier than Trump ever did!

  18. Did you see where your NBC/WSJ poll, with the tiny sample, overweighted with Democrats by 11%, was conducted by an employee of Hillary Clinton’s superpac?

    Way past time for you to wake up>>>>>>> unless you’re on the payroll too.

    True, but if they’re gonna do it, they better get cracking. Any charge like that is going to get met with a wall of lawyers parsing every letter on the sheet.

    OK, so Mr. Geoff Garin, the President of Hart Research and Associates”, is currently working as “a strategic adviser for Priorities USA in support of Hillary Clinton’s election“. Gee, I wonder why the media never tells us that part?

    See the issue?

    Wait, we’re not even close to finished. It gets better.
    ◦$220,500.00 in the month of September alone paid by Hillary Clinton’s Priorities USA Super-PAC to Hart Research Associates.
    ◦The President of Hart Research Associates, Geoff Garin, is working for Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
    ◦NBC (S Burke) and The WSJ (Murdoch) contact Geoff Garin (Hart Research Associates) for the post-debate poll data they will use on the day following the debate.
    ◦Hart Research Associates provides a small national poll sample (500) result, with skewed party internals, showing Hillary Clinton +11 points.

    Let’s take a look at the recent financial connection between, Geoff Garin, Hart Research Associates and Hillary Clinton’s Priorities USA Super-PAC.

  21. Constantly reminding me Trump is a very imperfect candidate is a fool’s errand.

    He’s still a better pick than Hillary, the only other choice.

    Get off your high horse and tell me which of these two you are voting for.

  22. What SarahW said.

    Trump remains a vulgar narcissistic megalomaniac who should not be president,
    but I prefer him over Clinton any day.
    If bad goes to worse, Trump can be impeached,
    Clinton could offer newborns to Moloch on the lap of the Lincoln Memorial and be applauded.

    A fan of Chris Christie, are you, Colonel?

  26. What I have not done, Colonel — unlike your hero Ace — is actively encourage readers to vote for a Democrat.

  27. Patterico, I think that Ace’s weird diet is making him cranky.
