Former New Jersey Governor and current ABC News political analyst Chris Christie has had a surreal love-hate relationship with Donald Trump over the past four years. As recently as three months ago, Christie was helping Trump prep for the 2020 election debates. But now that Trump has gone full domestic terrorist, even Christie is cutting bait.
Chris Christie appeared on ABC News this morning and came out in support of impeaching Donald Trump. This is a big deal because it means Christie is calling for Trump’s ouster, as a successful impeachment would result in Trump’s removal.
We’re not prepared to give Christie any points for this, as he tried until the very end to give Trump a second term. But it’s notable that even Christie has now decided he has to throw Trump fully under the bus, in order to try to maintain his own viability as a TV political analyst.
