When former Gov. Chris Christie got his own town hall on CNN Monday night, he leveled with attendees about Donald Trump.
“He hasn’t won anything since 2016,” Christie said, noting Republicans’ losses in 2018, 2020 and devastating underperformance in 2022. “Loser, loser, loser,” he summed up.
Christie noted that Trump can’t handle the truth: he lost. “I would be pretty disappointed too if I lost to Joe Biden,” Christie joked, “but the thing is, he did.”
Christie told attendees Trump is not for anyone but himself. “I’m confident that if he returns to the White House, the next four years will be spent settling scores with anyone he feels was not perfectly nice to him.”
In fact, if you think Trump got involved last time in the White House, buckle up if he returns: “He will care less about the country this time than he did four years ago.
As a former federal prosecutor, Christie outlined the most egregious parts of last week’s federal indictment against Trump and lambasted him for “willfully doing this to our country” as he just had to return the documents. “It’s our property,” Trump said of the highly sensitive documents.
Christie also assured the audience that the indictment, comprehensive as it is, likely only included about a third of the evidence uncovered by federal investigators. “When you are a prosecutor, you never put all the cards on the table before the trial.
Christie called Trump’s reckless handling of classified documents “indefensible” and criticized other GOP rivals, such as Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, for “playing political games” on the issue.
Finally, Christie busted Trump’s lies about 2020 voter fraud.
“Just show me the evidence,” he said, “but there’s no evidence.”
“To me, that’s the most destructive thing he’s done – people want to believe the President of the United States, don’t they? said Christie. “That’s when it all ended for me with Donald – when he stood behind the seal in the East Room of the White House at 2:30 a.m. on election morning and said that the elections had been stolen.”
Keep it up, Christie.
