Just in case you had forgotten between yesterday and today that New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is a giant prick, he has offered up another reminder.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie practically dared a nurse to sue him for quarantining her even after she tested negative for Ebola. “Whatever. Get in line,” the brash Republican said Tuesday during a campaign stop in Rhode Island. “I’ve been sued lots of times before. Get in line. I’m happy to take it on.” [...]
“She was inside the hospital in a climate-controlled area with access to her cellphone, access to the Internet and takeout food from the best restaurants in Newark. She was doing just fine,” he said.
Actually, nurse Kaci Hickox was kept in an unheated tent with no toilet or shower.
Her imprisonment may not even be the worst part.
Hickox was turned into a pariah by Christie and she’s now a target of right wing smear artists who have accused her of being involved in some kind of CDC conspiracy. Hickox has since disabled or deleted her social media accounts to avoid further harassment.
She wasn’t and isn’t “doing just fine.”
Christie can’t bring himself to apologize or even offer sympathy or a shred of remorse. He’s also a fucking liar.
