Chris Christie: Tired Of The Crazies

Watch this video from last week of Governor Chris Christie defending his appointment of Sohail Mohammed to Superior Court of New Jersey. Christie's manner is usually overbearing and gruff, and he's more bully than anything else. But sometimes we can agree with him and his style for calling out critics for this appointment, simply for being Muslim despite being eminently qualified. He lays into them but good and pulls no punches, calling their complaints "crap"..

( TRENTON — Gov. Chris Christie defended his nomination of Muslim lawyer Sohail Mohammed to Superior Court, calling critics of his decision "ignorant."

"Sohail Mohammed is an extraordinary American who is an outstanding lawyer," Christie said at a press conference in Newark on Tuesday, "And played an integral role in the post Sept. 11 period in building bridges between the Muslim-American community in this state and law enforcement."

The question on Sharia Law seemed to set Christie off, as he said exasperated:

“Sharia Law has nothing to do with this at all, it’s crazy! The guy is an American citizen!” He concluded that the “Sharia Law business is just crap… and I’m tried of dealing with the crazies,” adding with disgust and frustration that “it’s just unnecessary to be accusing this guy of things just because of his religious background.”
