Chris Christie Worst Persons

Chris Christie Reminds Us That He’s An Asshole

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.

    This guy is a walking turd, I don’t know whats bigger, his mouth or his belly. He is a total POS.

    “Christie can’t bring himself to apologize or even offer sympathy or a shred of remorse. He’s also a fucking liar.”

    Anyone in NJ who isn’t willfully blinded by Christie’s policies (i.e., not a person who has directly benefitted from a giant tax cut or some schadenfreude from seeing the dirty hippies punched yet again) saw that from the very start of his administration. But there are so many RWNJs and 1%ers in North Jersey that even a bridge closing for vindictive reasons doesn’t make a dent in the NJ Republican bully culture adoration.

    Christie is being considered as a legitimate Republican presidential candidate. That says it all right there.

    Who paid for it, Crisp Christie?

    Surely not the state of New Jersey!

    This fat pig Christie is one cold hearted and insensitive mfkr! How in the world did Democrats in New Jersey vote for this monster! The man is scum!

    “She was doing just fine.”
    She was detained inside a tent, inside a warehouse with no access to a shower or a toilet which is a hell of a lot more likely to cause a communicable disease than anything she was diagnosed with. Which was nothing. Now she is being subjected to a smear campaign by idiots who think Christie didn’t go far enough.
    And conservatives call Obama a dictator?!?

    Chris Christie is running for president. Filter everything he says and does—absolutely everything, from 86ing free money for transportation infrastructure a few years ago to daring, in his particularly charmless way, Kaci Hickox to sue him—through that lens and it makes sense.

    He’s still an asshole/a prick with ears/the south end of a northbound horse (delete according to taste), but he’s also a very ambitious one.

    “Whatever. … I’ve been sued lots of times before. Get in line.”

    Y’know, a mature and responsible person, when continually being sued, would stop for at least a moment of reflection and at least consider “I wonder if I’m going the about things the wrong way.”

    But, of course, “mature”, “responsible”, “self-aware” and “empathetic” don’t exist for modern Republicans.

    I hope she sues him and wins damages for her unjustified and unlawful imprisonment.
