Trump Didn't Appoint Chris Christie As AG Because He'd 'Prosecute My Own Kids'

The Washington Post published a story on Politico White House correspondent Tim Alberta’s new book Thursday, in which the journalist explores how formerly anti-Trump Republicans suddenly embraced the volatile President — and how Trump rewarded them by tapping them as members of his administration.

But despite former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s (R) unwavering loyalty during the 2016 campaign, Trump denied him the coveted AG position and shut him out of the White House altogether.

According to Alberta, Trump had explained his decision to campaign chairman Paul Manafort in 2016 like this: “Because that guy would prosecute my own kids and not think twice about it.”

Christie’s relationship noticeably cooled after Trump’s inauguration in January 2017. In his book released this year, Christie describes Trump’s inner circle as “amateurs, grifters, weaklings, convicted and unconvicted felons.” However, the ex-governor has said he plans on voting for Trump in 2020 anyway.

1. So he's admitting there are reasons his children should be prosecuted.

2. He doesn't seem to get that, does he?

This isn't the first time he's admitted to unlawful behavior in tweets. Stable genius indeed.

7. He's also saying

Jeff Sessions and William Barr would not prosecute them. But we know that.

8. That was my first thought as well.

And he's not just admitting that they have committed crimes, but FEDERAL crimes, which can only be prosecuted by DOJ.

Don't even leave a purple on the map, they all must go !

Kind of like using a spirit board to do an exorcism, if they are not wiped out, the will return.

to see this endless parade of totally unqualified rogues, cronies, idiots, sycophants, loonies, zealots, rubes, yokels, kleptomaniacs, small-change wannabe gangsters, finance hustlers, cultists, 4channers, dumb kids of big donors, women hired on their "fuckability" quotient, conspiracy nutbars, stooges, swindlers, Putinists, sociopaths, rapists, DUI manslaughterers, drunkards, meth-heads, gun nutters, end time preppers, Neo-nazis, Nazi-lites in a media-friendly package, anti-intellectuals, ignorami, fraudsters, traitors, garden variety criminals, self-hating ethnic minorities, social media trolls, office gropers, wannabe militia cosplay toy soldiers, losers, folks full of the most petty of hatreds, degenerates, perverts, sickos, lowlifes, incompetents, garbage, scumbags, ass-kissing mediocrities, rat bastards, etc. go straight through the revolving door of the White House for high-level government jobs, appointments and judgeships where they barely even show up to work while he's still shut out in the cold with his dick in his hands... Guess he forgot the secret handshake?

9. He actually should be greatful...

remember, everything trump touches, dies. In an ironic twist trump may have actually saved Christie.
