No longer laying low, Chris Christie showed up on Morning Joe today — where he proceeded to trash Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), one of the few political figures even more widely disliked than he is. The topic was the politics of disaster relief after Hurricane Sandy and now, following Harvey’s devastation of the Lone Star […]
“Next time you want to sit on a beach that is closed to the entire world except you,” said a caller identified only as Mike from Montclair. “You put your fat ass in a car and go to one that’s open to all your constituents.” Christie, who is used to far-friendlier, pre-screened calls on his monthly radio show on NJ 101.5 FM, “Ask the Governor,” at first seemed a bit flummoxed.
You may have read about Chris Christie’s holiday on the state beach he closed to everyone else in New Jersey. You may have glanced at the aerial photos of Christie and his family lounging on that beach, staring up at the plane as the photographer took those shots. But to fully understand why the obnoxious […]

Chris Christie is just trolling New Jerseyans at this point. In June, a Quinnipiac University poll found that his approval rating stood at a dismal 15 percent, the lowest of any American governor in decades. Yet this past weekend, he was photographed sunbathing on a beach that had been closed to the public amid a state government shutdown. Here are five ways the New Jersey governor is extending a giant middle finger to voters before he leaves office:.
There he is, Gov. Chris Christie, chilling with his family on a beautiful stretch of deserted beach on a holiday weekend, something that no living mortal has ever seen in New Jersey, a treasure that for the common man and woman is the stuff of dreams. “Run for governor, and you can have a residence there,” Christie said when he was asked if it’s fair. The huddled masses were crammed together at local beaches nearby, held back by the governor’s patrols. Little people. Let them eat cake.
Seth Meyers opens his “closer look” at the ongoing Comey-Trump showdown with a backward glance — recalling how the president and his minions defended their current target last fall, when the FBI director endured withering criticism from…Democrats. But returning quickly to the present, Meyers scrutinizes the various Trump alibis for his blatant attempts to derail […]

Donald Trump has inspired so much fear among his Republican comrades that he no longer has to issue harsh tweets when they misbehave. They do it themselves.
During the campaign, Trump went so far as to hint that a “400-pound guy at his home in New Jersey” hacked those Democratic emails. Was he trying to frame the nefarious Chris Christie? Now, instead of taking daily intelligence briefings, he’s on a campaign-style tour of rallies, handing out hideous hats.
In the latest Quinnipiac poll, 56 percent of New Jersey voters said Christie’s involvement in “Bridgegate” deserved further investigation, and 71 percent believe Christie knew his aides were behind the scheme.
Charles Kushner had pledged $2.5 million to Harvard University in 1998, not long before his son Jared was admitted to the prestigious Ivy League school. Did he buy Jared’s admission into Harvard?
The ruling ratchets up the political pressure on Christie, an avid Trump supporter, who now heads his White House transition team.
“Our very weak and ineffective leader, Paul Ryan, had a bad conference call where his members went wild at his disloyalty,” Trump said in a tweet on Tuesday. He added in a later Twitter post, “It is so nice that the shackles have been taken off me and I can now fight for America the way I want to.”
“The media and establishment want me out of the race so badly – I WILL NEVER DROP OUT OF THE RACE, WILL NEVER LET MY SUPPORTERS DOWN!” Trump tweeted on Saturday afternoon.

The chickens are coming home to roost in the Bridgegate scandal as NBC News reports NJ legislators are considering whether to impeach Gov. Chris Christie.
“The evidence will show that … they bragged about the fact that there were traffic problems in Fort Lee and that Mayor Sokolich was not getting his calls returned,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Vikas Khanna said about Wildstein and defendant Bill Baroni. Wildstein’s attorney once suggested “evidence exists” Christie knew about the traffic jams.
Christie defended Trump’s statements on immigration and deportation, insisting that the Republican presidential nominee has been consistent in his messaging despite rhetoric that suggests a waffling on his hardline stance.
Two days after his re-election, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said he lost “confidence” in Stepien when emails appeared to show Stepien at least had knowledge of the lane closings at the center of the bridge scandal.
