You know, this Republican race (to the bottom) of losers, all trying to nab the presidential nomination, is quite dull. None of these candidates have an ounce of charisma, and all of them seem to blur together into one sycophantic (and dull) shadow. Except for one.
And that one seems to exist (for now anyway) to give us a bit of laughter when needed (and with THIS lot, laughter is needed frequently.) That, of course, is Chris Christie, who has not stopped trying to destroy all of the candidates. He’s using a very safe, very effective method to do this. Catching them in lies.
Catching a Republican in a lie is a daily, even an hourly thing, so it’s not all that hard to do. But Christie is doing something ELSE. He’s actually calling out the lies. Just look at Chris Christie as a human lie detector, with the results showing “false” every time a measly Republican like DeSantis, Trump, or Vivek opens their mouths.
And Christie is not confining his lie detection to just politicians as Fox non-news unhappily learned the hard way just the other day. Christie was talking to Fox host Howard Kurtz, who really seemed to want to take a vicious bite out of Christie for daring to tell the truth about Trump.
Kurtz said Christie was preaching to the choir and that Christie wasn’t persuading anyone. Christie was not phased at all. He simply shot back that the GOP is losing independents, soft democrats, and the middle in general.
Then he added this: “If we nominate Donald Trump, you’re kidding yourself. And we’re going to lose.”
Ouch! See, that’s what happens with that rare Republican who decides to tell the truth. You get answers and feedback you may not like. And that is exactly what happened to Howard Kurtz.
