Remember how during the 2016 campaign, Chris Christie was a very important part of Donald Trump’s harem, even though he wasn’t allowed to eat all the Oreos, which was very sad because eating all the snacks is his favorite? Then after the election, Christie led the Trump transition team for a hot minute, until Jared Kushner was like “PEW PEW STAY PUFT! You put my criminal daddy in jail, I am going to Ghostbusters you PEW PEW PEW!”
After Christie had done SO MUCH for Trump, he got NOTHIN’. No VP slot, no cabinet position, just a one-way ticket back to Jersey. Meanwhile, know who DID get a job? It was that Russo-Turkish foreign agent guy Michael Flynn, who is currently pleading the Fifth and refusing to turn documents over to the Senate Intelligence Committee, in part because he is worried about the “escalating public frenzy” around the Trump-Russia investigation, and also probably because he is guilty as fuck.
Chris Christie wouldn’t have given that dude a job. Chris Christie is a good boy who should have been treated better than having to pick up Mickey D’s for the Trump campaign, and he has way better judgment than to hire a Russo-Turkish foreign agent creep like Flynn:
“If I were president-elect of the United States, I wouldn’t let General Flynn in the White House, let alone give him a job,” Christie said during a during a wide-ranging news conference in Trenton, N.J.
Christie, who was relieved of his duties overseeing the transition shortly after the November election, declined to detail his concerns about Flynn.
“I’m not going to get into specifics,” Christie said. “Some of it involves classified information that I’m just not at liberty to discuss.”
Christie said that Flynn was “not my cup of tea” and that the two “didn’t see eye-to-eye.”
“I didn’t think that he was someone who would bring benefit to the president or to the administration,” Christie said. “And I made that very clear to candidate Trump, and I made it very clear to President-elect Trump. That was my opinion, my view.”
Now, Christie specifically said he didn’t know Flynn or anybody else was under investigation at the time (probably trying to protect his ass), so we can’t point this out as YET MORE EVIDENCE that Mike Pence, who snatched the leadership of the Trump transition team from Christie’s maw like a Big Mac, is lying about what he knew about Michael Flynn and when he knew it.
But since Christie says he knows “classified information” about why Michael Flynn shouldn’t have been working in the White House, he musta known SOMETHING at the time, which suggests that Trump also knew, so that kind of debunks the SHOCK AND AWE Trump feigned when news came out that Flynn, the “best people” he had chosen as his first national security adviser, was a literal actual fucking foreign agent.
Anyway, the Washington Post reports that Trump recently chose Christie to head some White House thingie on drug addiction, and that he’s a possible contender to replace one of the very bad current members of the White House staff, but now he’s done this interview and said mean things about Michael Flynn, whom Trump still loves VERY MUCH, so he probably shouldn’t start measuring West Wing offices to see how many snack machines will fit just yet.
