Oh, man, this is sweet. One of the great disappointments in recent days was New Jersey Governor Chris Christie turning his coat and endorsing Juan Domingo Peron… er… Donald Trump, a move clearly timed to distract from the beating Trump had taken at the Houston debate the night before.
Now, I’ve never been great Chris Christie fan, but I have had some modicum of respect for the man, given that he’s a reasonably successful Republican governor in a Deep Blue state. I disagreed with him a lot on policy –especially on Second Amendment rights– but I could also acknowledge his accomplishments.
That respect is now dead. Not only did a man sworn to support the Constitution of the United States endorse another man running openly as a tyrant, but to do so Christie had to jettison every single thing he said in criticism of Trump just weeks before, while he was still an active candidate. The self-serving hypocrisy is enormous, perhaps even more so than the Governor’s belt size.
And thus, to see him sent away like a potboy from his master’s table after introducing him at a rally in Tennessee was delicious. Watch, and enjoy:
In case you didn’t quite get that, Christie warmly introduces Trump, and then The Donald, (perhaps) not realizing the mic was so close and still open, says:
“Get in the plane and go home. It’s over there. Go home.”
And like a good little servant, Christie obeyed.
Hope it was worth it to you, Governor, because your political career is dead.
Now go home.
PS: Oh, yeah. About “#FatJudas.” That was the Twitter hashtag that sprang up after Christie endorsed Trump. Perfect.
