Chris Christie: Trump’s Waffling On His Signature Issue Shows He’s Presidential

Chris Christie: Trump’s Waffling On His Signature Issue Shows He’s Presidential



http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/trumps-waffling-on-his-signature-issue-shows-hes-presidential-chris-christie_us_57c2f8c3e4b04193420f9659?section=&

On Sunday, Martha Raddatz, co-host of ABC’s “This Week” asked New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) if Trump still planned on deporting everyone or what. Christie, who was the first of Trump’s vanquished primary foes to back him, said Trump would get bad apples out of the country first and then “deal with people in a humane way.”

So, Raddatz asked, does that not mean getting all 11 million undocumented immigrants out of the country?

Christie responded that there are going to be “some decisions [Trump]’s going to have to make as president regarding those folks,” referencing Trump’s good apples. Christie did not directly acknowledge that Trump might be abandoning one of his core policy positions. But he basically said that, if Trump did so, it would show he’s thoughtful and presidential.

“Quite frankly, you know, I think this is the kind of thing people expect from a president of the United States,” Christie said. “That they all approach these things thoughtfully and smartly and I’m confident that that’s exactly what a President Trump will do.”

1. Just like shutting down the GWB made Christie a great governor.

2. Trump could drool tomato soup down his chin during a press conference

And Christie would still call it presidential.

And WHO is editing Huffington Post these days? "some decision's???????????" Arianna Huffington is Greek and even she knows that plurals are not formed in English with an apostrophe.

4. Crafting national policy by the seat of your pants = presidential.

Got it.

7. What a hypocrite.

In NJ, Christie prides himself on not budging on his positions. He constantly vetoes any bill passed by the democratic legislature. He berates public school (union) teachers for failing NJ's children. He is against gun control and wants to loosen existing laws that allow for purchase of weapons.

11. If Obama did this, it would be "He's weak, indecisive, leading from behind..."

Also, snack oil sounds like the bad kind of fat
