Finding out that Chris Christie lied about his involvement in Bridge-Gate and let a mother with kids take the fall for him was more than Trump could handle.
Christie has been kicked out of Trump’s inner circle, not just removed from the roll of heading the transition team.
Donald Trump is furious and disgusted that Christie did not just man up and take responsibility for his part in the debacle. He does not take kindly when mothers and children get caught up in the nasty web of politics.
“Trump thought it was shameful that Christie didn’t take the fall for [convicted aide]Bridget Kelly,” a source close to the transition team told the Post. “Trump is really angry that Christie is sending a soccer mom to jail. He believes 100 percent that Christie was behind it all.”
Kelly, Christie’s former deputy chief of staff, was convicted in federal court earlier this month along with former Port Authority executive Bill Baroni. They deliberately caused dangerous traffic tie-ups on the George Washington Bridge in September 2013 as political payback for Fort Lee Mayor Mark Sokolich not endorsing Christie, a jury determined.
“Trump really doesn’t like it when married women with kids get hurt in politics,” the source told the Post. “Trump was pretty disgusted with Christie.”
Simply put, Trump felt that Christie did not man up and take responsibility for Bridge-gate.
Chris Christie has spent years denying that he knew anything about Bridge-Gate. The big fat slug was involved the whole time. yes, I said “Big Fat Slug” and I NEVER talk like that.
Christie has me furious too. I’ve never been a fan and have some serious issues with him, but I always believed he was telling the truth.
…And to let a mother and her children, (Yes, her children will suffer most from this abhorrent behavior on the part of the slug!), take the fall for this makes Christie a part of the bottom feeders of society. He needs to resign immediately!
