Chris Christie is no longer the darling at Fox News, as it seems orders came down from above to Steve, Brian and Anna this morning. The Fox and Friends triumvirate of clueless decided to bring up the pesky polls that have Trump at 24% with Christie at 4%. When informed of this, Christie says,
'So what's that mean exactly? What's that got to do with what he's talking about?I don't understand, I know there are lots of folks who are obsessed with polls right now, uh, but that has nothing to do with the credibility of the things he said, I was asked a question, I gave an answer, that's what I do.' ... Look at the (Monmouth pollster's) tweets this is not an objective pollster, this is a liberal, who likes to spout liberal things... I did not BLOW UP, so I think the characterization is really off and I think you guys are better than that!'
Ooh, boy, somebody is a little testy today!
Kooiman asks him about Kasich's apparent rise in the polls, several candidates in front of Christie. He had nothing negative to say about Kasich. Kilmeade asks him about New Hampshire, and he said it's important to every candidate, but he's been in N.H. more than any candidate and held more town halls than anyone else, so time will tell. He reminds Brian that it's July, as Brian probably doesn't actually know the date, based on his previous revelations of his intellectual capabilities.
The next subject will alienate Christie from GOP Millenials, where 63% are in favor of Marijuana legalization. Christie will make it illegal in states like Colorado and Washington, as we shouldn't pick and choose which laws we want to follow. All of a sudden he's NOT a States' Rights guy. How interesting, because a few months ago, in March, he was very much in favor of States' individual rights. This especially is relevant when it comes to the Federal Government trying to steal your GUNS.
"It was the states that created the federal government, not the federal government that created the states. We need to get back to that philosophy."
But when it comes to pot, that whole states' rights thing is just nonsense. Oh yeah, those 'sanctuary cities' are also a scourge on the earth, in case you thought he was pro-amnesty. He's way too tough for that sort of compassion.
Next he is asked about Keystone XL and he said, bluntly,
We build it.
But regarding Hillary's punting of the Keystone XL Pipeline question:
...'it's typical of her approach this entire campaign. She answers only the questions she wants to answer, when she wants to answer them... She's trying to have it both ways.'
I'm afraid you, Chris Christie, are trying to have it both ways. You want support, but you don't want to remain consistent in your answers. You want to be on stage in the debates, but you don't want to base entry into said debates on those pesky polls. Chris Christie is used to making the rules, and he doesn't like being subjected to someone else's standards.
