Chris Christie Says Biden’s ‘Lying to Cause Racial Divisions’ Over GA Election Law: ‘He’s a Liar and a Hypocrite’


The panel on ABC’s This Week got particularly heated over the new Georgia election law, with former New Jersey governor Chris Christie going off on President Joe Biden in particular.

Christie told George Stephanopoulos that Biden’s “broken his own rule” about stating the truth, saying the president is “lying to the American people” about what the law says.

“He’s lying about this bill, he’s lying to the American people about it, to cause the raging fire he said he was going to put out. I’m very disappointed,” Christie added.

Christie even accused Biden of “doing exactly what he sat around in the campaign and the transition and accused Donald Trump of doing.”

“He is lying to cause racial divisions in this country. That’s what he accused Donald Trump of doing. And he’s a liar and a hypocrite,” he added.

Democracy for America CEO Yvette Simpson said in response to Christie, “You should ask the people who know. I’ve been doing voter protection for ten years. Just the idea that you can’t get people water in line…”

“That’s not true!” Christie said.

The panel clashed over that section of the law, but Rahm Emanuel made a point of going back to Christie’s comments to defend the president.

“Joe Biden’s not a liar,” Emanuel said.

“Yes he is,” Christie responded.

“We just spent four years with a person who literally couldn’t find the truth if it said ‘choo-choo’ in front of him in the morning,” Emanuel shot back.

“He lied,” Christie said. “He lied, Rahm, and he’s gonna have to live with it.”
