Chris Christie endorsed Donald Trump Friday, a man he previously said was a childish whiner who couldn’t be president, believed in ridiculous and dangerous ideas, and would hand the White House to the Democrats.
“Donald’s a great guy and a good person. But I just don’t think that he’s suited to be president of the United States,” he told Fox News host Greta Van Susteren… He added: “I don’t think his temperament is suited for that and I don’t think his experience is.”
Briefly slipping into an impression of Mr. Trump — “We’re stupid,” he deadpanned in a throaty baritone — Mr. Christie said he empathized with voters who want to “burn Washington down.”
“But who’s going to rebuild it once it gets burned down?” Mr. Christie said. “That’s what you’ve got to think about.”
By nominating the wrong candidate, he continued, “We could wind up turning over the White House to Hillary Clinton for four more years.”
That prospect, he said, would be “like the eight years we’ve just had, except worse.”
