On Monday’s “Fox & Friends” on the Fox News Channel, Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ), a candidate for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, pushed back against the barrage of questions about one of his opponents, real estate mogul Donald Trump, and the comments he had made about certain immigrants in the United States.
“You know, enough. We’ve answered the questions,” Christie said. “It’s inappropriate. The comments were inappropriate. But listen, Donald is a friend, I’ve known him for 13 years, and I like him personally. But his comments were inappropriate. That’s now the 50th time I’ve said it. It’s going to be the last time I say it.”
“Seriously, when I’m out there talking to folks, nobody in the real world asks me about this — nobody,” he added. “But every time I get on a media show, all anybody ever wants to talk about is Donald Trump.”
