Christie on Kerry’s Charlie Hebdo Comments: ‘He Needs to Get Some Sleep and Shut Up’

Wednesday on Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom,” Republican presidential candidate Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ)  discussed Secretary of State John Kerry‘s remarks that the Charlie Hebdo attack had a “rationale you could attach yourself to and say OK” and said Kerry “needs to get some sleep and shut up.”

Christie said, “That’s disgraceful for the Secretary of State of the United States to stand up and say that there’s some rationale for what happened in January – these are the kind of weak, mixed signals that this administration sends, that helps to really make the American people think that there is no one watching the store. And there isn’t. This is the same president sitting around saying somehow it’s everyone else’s fault. He’s the one who drew the red line in Syria and didn’t enforce it. If he had these refugees wouldn’t have to be leaving their own country. ”

He continued, “His own FBI director said they don’t have the capacity to vet these people. That should be the end of the conversation. The American people need to be protected first. The homeland need to be protected first. This president had the chance to protect these people in Syria and he didn’t do it. Now 250,000 of them are dead and there is no safe place to go in Syria. For this president to blame Republicans – this is what he and Hillary Clinton always do.”

He added, “The president lives in a fantasy world. He sees the world as he wishes it were rather than the way it was. This is the same guy who said Thursday ISIS is contained then Friday we had at the attacks in Paris…ISIS  is not contained. ISIS is not a regional threat. ISIS is a global threat.”
