Ah, Chris Christie. You don’t have a chance in hell of ever getting my vote, but I must admit, you are providing a plethora of amusement to us. I’m glad you’re in the race.
Were Chris Christie NOT in the race, this might just be the most boring primary ever. A ll the candidates are off the wall, they all sound like baby trumps, and they’re all fighting with each other. In other words — they’re their usual Republican selves.
But here comes Christie angling for a fight. And he got one. He and Assolini have been sparring with each other. And Trump is playing dirty — bringing up Christie’s weight very maliciously.
Christie, however, had some fighting words for Trump. It happened on the Stephen A Smith show.
Here is what Christie said regarding Trump.
“He’s a child. I mean, this is the kind of stuff, Stephen A, that happens in the schoolyard.”
“You’re making fun of people in elementary school for the guy or the woman who’s overweight.”
Christie went on.
“As you know, there are tens of millions of Americans out there who struggle each and every day with their weight.”
“And I’m one of them.”
“I lost a lot of weight when I was governor, and I’ve kept most of that weight off, but I still have much more to go.”
“I just look at him and think what a child, how small he is to be doing things like that.”
One can tell Christie is a good politician. Why? Because he turned a negative into a positive, talked about working on himself and how so many people might be affected by Trump’s words.
But Christie wasn’t done yet. And that’s why I love having him in the race. Because rain or shine, one knows that any Christie statement will include a dis at Donald Trump.
In this case, it also included a nod to Mythology, completing my day.
“Maybe he should look in the mirror ’cause this guy ain’t Arnold Schwarzenegger.”
“Okay. I’ve seen some of those pictures of him golfing. He doesn’t look like a Greek God to me.”
There is a chance I’ve missed a Trump Truth Social meltdown while writing this.
Trump can dish it out, but he sure can’t take it, and with Christie in the race, Trump has to take it just about every day now.
