Republican presidential candidate Chris Christie asked the media establishment Monday morning to move on from the constant Donald Trump questions, telling the hosts of Fox and Friends that “nobody in the real world” cared about his distracting candidacy.
“…Donald Trump has been in the news and has been saying that we’ve got to do a lot more about immigration. He’s made comments that have frustrated some of your fellow Republicans, who have said he’s setting the wrong tone for the party. Where do you stand?” asked host Steve Doocy.
Christie was clearly not happy to get the question. “We talked about this over and over again. What we should be talking about are all the significant problem we have in this country, like entitlement reform… We should be talking about education reform and not continue to be talking about all this stuff. Enough, we’ve answered the question!”
“This would be the 50th time I’ve answered now,” he continued when pressed by Doocy. “It’s inappropriate, the comments were inappropriate. But listen, Donald is a friend, and I’ve known him for 13 years and I like him personally. But his comments were inappropriate. That’s now the 50th time I’ve said it; it will be the last time.”
“When I’m out there talking to folks, nobody in the real world asks me about this. Nobody,” he said. “But anytime I get on a media show, all anybody wants to talk about is Donald Trump.”
