Chris Christie on CNN

Republican presidential candidate Chris Christie is a one-issue man with the only variation of his platform being the specific line of attack on former President Donald J. Trump, this time over the explosion of anti-Semitism in Joe Biden’s America.

The blustery former New Jersey governor appeared on CNN, his Sunday morning pulpit, to bellyache about Trump whom he accused of being responsible for fomenting of anti-Semitic hate and to a lesser degree, the Islamophobia that the Biden regime insists is practically everywhere at a time when Jews are being targeted as never before in the U.S.

Speaking with anchor Dana Bash on “State of the Union,” Christie was asked about his previous remarks to the New York Times suggesting that the GOP frontrunner bore much responsibility for the current climate.

“Governor, I want to ask about the spike in hate against Jews in the United States. You told The New York Times that you believe former President Donald Trump’s quote ‘intolerance for everybody has contributed to this surge in anti-Semitism and Islamophobia, how so?” Bash asked.

“Well look, when you show intolerance towards everyone, which is what he does, you give permission as a leader for others to have their intolerance come out. Intolerance towards anyone encourages intolerance towards everyone, that’s exactly what’s going on here,” Christie responded.


“And That’s been going on for some time, not just with Donald Trump, but with university professors on some of our most elite campuses in this country, with university administrators and presidents who have been unwilling to stand up against antisemitism on their campuses, most particularly,” he said, equating the former president with Jew-hating leftist academics.

“There should be no campus in this country where a Jewish student is afraid to leave their dorm, a Jewish student is afraid go to their classes, a Jewish student is afraid to go to have a meal in the dining hall. That is outrageous, and it’s wrong,” he correctly said, also noting the pro-Hamas climate cultists who disrupted the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade with their gory performative antics.

“In the end, look, I think that there have been a lot of people who contributed to it. I believe Donald Trump’s intolerant language and conduct gives others permission to act the same,” he said, unfairly blaming Trump for something that he has nothing to do with.

Rather than point the finger of blame where it belongs, squarely on the Democratic party and it’s “Squad” of yappy anti-Semites, the media, left-wing colleges and Jew-hating activists, Christie just couldn’t pass up gaslighting the public – again.

Christie also shot down the suggestion that he could hang it up if he performs poorly in New Hampshire, telling Bash that he’s going all the way next summer’s Republican National Convention at the Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee, WI, the same building where he was nearly booed off the stage at the first GOP primary debate.

“I expect to be in this race through to the convention, Dana. And so yes, absolutely,” he said.
