155. Christie's RNC Kangaroo Court (He Supplied The Pouch)

Last edited Mon Jan 22, 2018, 01:56 PM - Edit history (6)

Christie made lemonade out of his not being originally invited to speak at the Republican national convention!

In addition to speaking at an RNC breakfast meeting, he turned up on a TV show explaining his interpretation of Melania-Gate:

Today.com: New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, a former prosecutor, brushed off the controversy surrounding Melania Trump's convention speech, saying he wouldn't be able to make the case for plagiarism, "not when 93 percent of the speech is completely different...I know Melania. I think she worked very hard on that speech. A lot of what I heard last night sitting on the floor sounded very much like her and the way she speaks about Donald all the time..."

...Christie also dismissed reports he was angry about not being picked as Donald Trump's running mate. "I never expected to be chosen," he said, although he admitted he did feel let down. "...If you compete for something like I did, you'd like to be picked. I wasn't. So you take a deep breath, and you go to bed and wake up the next morning and get on with your day..."


Since then, an official explanation of Melania-Gate has been issued, though it makes Melania out to be a politically tone deaf lying bimbo. And it turned out that his efforts did not go unrewarded by Duh Donald -- Christie got to make a speech at the convention after all!

Slate.com:
...New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie roused the Republican delegates with a bill of indictment against Hillary Clinton’s record and character as the nation’s top diplomat. He was clearly staking his bid for a Cabinet post in the Trump administration, but his reading seemed more like an audition for the role of Reverend Parris in a summer-stock production of The Crucible...




Suffice it to say that...(no) investigator found the slightest evidence that her email led to the improper disclosure of any secrets...

Christie concluded his speech, as if addressing a jury of her peers, “Time after time, the facts and just the facts lead you to the same verdict. … In Libya, Nigeria: guilty. In China and Syria … ”

The crowd screamed, “Guilty!”

“And here at home, for risking America’s secrets to keep her own and lying to cover it all up...”

“Guilty!”

...(T)he end of his political career (is) in sight...the final months of his final term as New Jersey governor...with unspeakably low ratings, denied his dream of a spot on the ticket with Trump after months of a lapdog’s humiliation. He mustered his case for the candidate nonetheless, on an issue about which he knows next to nothing, and incited...mob passion despite his placement on the schedule just before 10 p.m. -- that is, just before the three networks started covering the proceedings...

He didn't make the ready for prime time list, which featured a retired doctor, the owner of a winery, and two of Trump's children. But I suppose it's better than no convention speaking at all.


P.S. Christie has a couple of private email server problems of his own:
