Trump goes after Christie: “The people in New Jersey want to throw him out of office”

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

How do you know Chris Christie’s polling improvement in New Hampshire is legitimate, Save Jerseyans? Or at least that the president campaigns are treating it as real? The Donald laid into the Governor – and the Union Leader – at an event today in New Hampshire for the second time this holiday season.

“Joe McQuaid’s just his puppet,” Trump said of the paper’s leader, characterizing the paper’s treatment of him as a “very disloyal act.”

And that was just the beginning, before he tore into the Christie Administration’s record:

Trump’s not wrong, by the way: Christie’s approval rating in New Jersey was upside down – 55% to 39% – in a November 2015 Quinnipiac poll.

  1. New Jersey voters showed how stupid they are when they voted for Christie but then ignored the fact that he can’t do anything without the legislature. What I want is to throw out the Democrat controlled legislature!!

    As for Donald – he is the PT Barnum of the 21st century. He also seems to completely ignore the fact that we have THREE equal branches of government and that president is NOT a dictatorship.

  2. Christie has always talked tough but done little. He can blame the Democrats in the legislature all he wants but he signed the gun ban for people on the terrorist watch list even though there are many mistakes on it, no due process and no process to get off. He appointed an anti gun Democrat as his first AG all on his own. He did nothing to get any Republicans elected to the legislature. Here in NJ he has been better than a Democrat would have been but not much. He can’t seem to work out any compromises with the Democrats to get even one conservative judge.
