Chris Christie snapped at a reporter today who asked him about Donald Trump while he was participating in a roundtable about drug addiction and recovery.
Christie spoke about the issue in an emotional viral video weeks ago, and when he was asked to respond to Trump taking a swipe at him, he wasn’t pleased.
“We’re sitting here talking about some really important issues of recovery and addiction that are ravaging families across the country,” Christie said, “and you all, quite frankly, should be ashamed of yourselves. All you do is ask about Donald Trump, every place I go.”
He suggested that maybe Trump keeps doing so well because the press won’t talk about anything but him.
Christie yesterday issued a strong rebuttal of Trump’s false claim that thousands of Muslims in New Jersey cheered on 9/11. Trump briefly responded by saying, “He really needs to be careful about what he says.”
