Broadside: NJ Newpapers Pound Christie

Seven NJ papers pen Scathing USA Today editorial

Christie has been abrasive and condescending to his home state news media, and his endorsement of Trump was the last straw capping more than a year of the absentee executive racking up travel and security costs around the country. SEVEN NJ papers unloaded on Christie in a USA Today editorial this morning, demanding his resignation – a sampling:

What an embarrassment. What an utter disgrace.

  • We’re fed up with Gov. Chris Christie’s arrogance.
  • We’re fed up with his opportunism.
  • We’re fed up with his hypocrisy.
  • We’re fed up with his sarcasm.
  • We’re fed up with his long neglect of the state to pursue his own selfish agenda.

We’re disgusted with his endorsement of Donald Trump after he spent months on the campaign trail trashing him, calling him unqualified by temperament and experience to be president.

And we’re fed up with his continuing travel out of state on New Jersey’s dime, stumping for Trump, after finally abandoning his own presidential campaign.

For the good of the state, it’s time for Christie to do his long-neglected constituents a favor and resign as governor. If he refuses, citizens should initiate a recall effort.

The editorial continued by panning a particularly nasty and arrogant ‘press conference’ on Monday.
