Gov. Chris Christie went on the attack as often as he could last night at the Fox Business GOP Debate, but most of his ire was directed at Hillary Clinton and President Obama. And he saved his most vile attack on President Obama at the end of the debate when he said our Commander in Chief, the man who commands our entire military, hates law enforcement and gives the benefit of the doubt to all criminals.

CHRISTIE: Well, first off, let’s face it, the FBI director James Comey was a friend of mine who I worked with as U.S. Attorney of New Jersey. He was the U.S. Attorney in Manhattan. He said, “there’s a chill wind blowing through law enforcement in this country.” Here’s why, the president of the United States and both his attorney’s general, they give the benefit of the doubt to the criminal, not to the police officers.

That’s the truth of the matter and you see it every time with this president. Every time he’s got a chance, going all the way back to — remember that Great Beer Summit he had after he messed up that time. This is a guy who just believes that law enforcement are the bad guys.

For the most part, law enforcement does a tremendous job, but when they are caught committing criminal acts, they should be prosecuted. And if any are afraid to do their jobs because these cases aren't buried anymore because of recent technological advances, (which have affected our entire population) then they should resign immediately.

Debate host Neil Cavuto conducted most of the debate like he was interviewing the candidates instead of making it an actual debate and asked the NJ governor what he would do to appease certain law enforcement officials, who were nervous after so many police officers have been filmed committing crimes on unarmed civilians. It was an underhanded pitch thrown in an MLB game, and it gave Christie the opportunity to show us just how vile he really is. And vile he was.

In his entire political career, Christie's been shown to be a mean and nasty person and this performance did not dissuade anyone from those views.
