There can not presumably be any similarities between the 2000 Bush v. Gore’s election, which got here all the way down to 543 votes in Florida, and the 2020 election, which got here all the way down to effectively over 1,000 votes in each single state that Trump contested and – extra importantly, how every shedding candidate handled the consequence. Certainly, Trump’s phrases relating to Georgia proceed to ring in a single’s ears: “I solely want 11,000 votes, fellas. I want 11,000 votes. Give me a break.” However Chris Christie didn’t want numbers to make a false equivalency. No, Christie truly equated the elections in a much more offensive manner, American religion of their legitimacy.
One way or the other, regardless of his sordid previous and prior work for Trump himself, Christie was on ABC Information’s protection of the Committee’s hearings. Whereas the panel mentioned the injury Trump’s lies precipitated with respect to election integrity, Christie described it as a part of an total bigger sample in that folks didn’t settle for the outcomes of the 2000 election and the 2016 Hillary Clinton versus Donald Trump election.
Video of Christie:
Clearly, Christie was thus far out of bounds and, frankly – offensive that it’s beautiful that David Muir didn’t make his rebuke harsher. Al Gore merely fought his case in courtroom, and when the ultimate courtroom spoke, Gore conceded, and the nation acknowledged that Bush received the election with out regard to being sad about the way it happened. There was no query as to the constitutional legitimacy of Bush’s election. In the meantime, Hillary Clinton conceded on the evening of the election. And, even supposing Democrats have been offended upon listening to about Russian help (and potential collusion), no Democrat believed that in some way proving collusion would make Hillary Clinton president. It’s an absurd equivalency.
The comparability was sufficient to set Twitter afire as “Chris Christie” managed to pattern at the next fee than any of the compelling testimony that happened throughout the listening to itself.
Chris Christie attempting to equate Gore and Hillary, who each publicly conceded, to Trump, who *nonetheless* hasn’t conceded is obnoxious.

Chris Christie Is a hack however we all know that all the pieces that’s gone unsuitable since 1992 has been the fault of Hillary. I blame her for my flat tire on the expressway simply so I’ll be a great republican

Hey @ABC I actually don’t care to listen to the evaluation of Trumper Chris Christie. He’s comprised and complicit. His credibility is null and voided. Permitting him to utter one phrase is so pointless and never warranted. #January6thCommitteeHearings
