Chris Christie Thrown Overboard by Trump Team

The Jersey Shore should be on the lookout for tidal waves. There is bound to be a king-size splash as a result of Chris Christie getting thrown overboard:

President-elect Donald Trump is so disgusted with Chris Christie’s handling of the Bridgegate scandal that he’s kicking the New Jersey governor out of his inner circle, The Post has learned.

“Trump thought it was shameful that Christie didn’t take the fall for [convicted aide] Bridget Kelly,” said a source close to the transition team. “Trump is really angry that Christie is sending a soccer mom to jail. He believes 100 percent that Christie was behind it all.”

Christie’s former deputy chief of staff was convicted in federal court earlier this month along with former Port Authority executive Bill Baroni. They were charged with causing dangerous traffic tie-ups on the George Washington Bridge in September 2013 as political payback for Fort Lee Mayor Mark Sokolich not endorsing Christie.

Kelly testified that Christie knew of the shutdown of several lanes of traffic, a charge Christie has repeatedly denied.

The former aides could face more than 20 years in jail.

Krispy Kreme Christie had already been waddling on thin ice due to the more serious crime of suspected soft loyalty:

Tensions had been building for weeks between the two men, with some Trump insiders questioning Christie’s loyalty in the last month of the campaign, when it looked like Trump would lose.

Christie canceled appearances on Sunday shows after the “Access Hollywood” video of Trump bragging about sexually assaulting women was leaked on Oct. 7, [a second source close to the Trump campaign] said. He also failed to attend the second debate, and canceled campaigning with Trump in the last weekend of the race, the source said.

Christie was formally pushed aside Friday as chair of Trump’s transition team and the job given to Vice President-elect Mike Pence.

Having also been skipped for VP in favor of Pence, Christie must have his heart set on a cabinet position. But that isn’t going to happen.

“They want to drain the swamp, and having Christie there is just plugging it up,” [another] source said. “He was tolerated in the past because he was viewed as a kind of nice Tony Soprano. But now that Trump is the president-elect, those days are over.”

Some close to Trump regarded the New Jersey governor as “a stupid thug who really needed to go,” the transition-team source told The Post.

At least in the short run, throwing in with Trump looks like it was a good gamble — but not for one of the very first to do it. No wonder he had that look on his face; Christie must have caught a glimpse of his future:

    Allow me to clarify this for your atrophied pea brains. At least until Blount finishes changing his poopy-filed diaper.

  • Bob

    Smart move President Elect Trump

  • Mike_W20

    Chris Christie, thinks to himself: “OMG, I’m down to my last packet of Twinkies.”

  • Kevin R.

    Dems want to throw Schumer overboard and make Sanders the senate minority leader.

    The radical left is really taking over the democrat party now. Talk about a political party crack up.

  • Occam’s Stubble

    I’m shocked that anyone is surprised that thuggery occurs in NJ politics.

  • Occam’s Stubble

    Yeah, look at all the businessmen he appointed to his transition team. Oh wait…

  • Luna Mora

    Chris Christie was 86 because he wanted to fill up with the likes of Bush , Cruz , Romney and members of the chamber of commerce .
    President Elect Trump wants to work with others that are loyal to him as he is to others .
    The choice announced yesterday Reince Priebus , is a perfect choice and we are positive President Elect Trump will continue to make perfect choices .

  • THOUGHTCRIMINAL2084

    He’s actually handling Christie very well. Christie is an attack dog, but he has got a bad case of fleas and pissed on the rug. President Trump has put him outside in the dog house, but he hasn’t called Animal Control or taken him to the vet for the “pink juice.”

    You never know when a good attack dog can come in handy, even if you don’t let him in the house.

  • TrojanMan

    In what way is Rinse Repeat not part of the establishment?

  • TrojanMan

    And he brought in a worse attack dog in Bannon.

  • THOUGHTCRIMINAL2084

    Yes.. one never goes wrong having an extra pitbull chomping at the bit though. Christie has no where to go. He burned his bridges… literally.There’s only one hand left to feed him.

  • Luna Mora

    Exactly .

  • THOUGHTCRIMINAL2084

    Alex Jones (yeah I know he is insane, but sometimes he makes sense) has an excellent explanation

    http://www.infowars.com/heres-why-trump-picked-reince-priebus-as-chief-of-staff/

  • TrojanMan

    Keep your enemy close argument… sorry not buying it for several reasons. Chief of staff is waaay to high of a position if you wanted to just keep an eye on your enemy. Rinse was instrumental in stamping down never Trump protest at the convention. He has been in the bag for Trump all along. I’m guessing a deal was struck before the convention between the two. And we are seeing the result of that deal. Rinse is the very definition of the establishment because he was it’s leader.

  • Luna Mora

    Ingenious .

  • Mr. Freemarket

    From the referenced link:

    “They were found guilty of all seven charges against them, including conspiracy to misuse Port Authority resources and infringing on citizens’ civil rights. The maximum charge carries 20 years.”

    Isn’t it interesting how democrats can propose registration of those buying ammo, restrictions on what kinds of guns and magazines are acceptable, as well as working to keep TEA Party groups from being classified as non-profit organizations by the IRS, yet a traffic jam causes a woman to be sent to prison for possibly 20 years?

    Some murderers don’t do that much time.

    3 Thoughts On Steve Bannon As White House ‘Chief Strategist’

    http://www.dailywire.com/news/10770/3-thoughts-steve-bannon-white-house-chief-ben-shapiro

  • Mr. Freemarket

    And….New Jersey isn’t that far from New York, either.

  • Mr. Freemarket

    I like how you throw Cruz into the same pot with Bush, Romney, and the Chamber of Commerce.

    Cruz is so unpopular that he likely eats alone in the Senate Dining Room.

  • SNuss

    There are uses for an “establishment” person in Trump’s advisors, as there are still a lot of RINOs still in the House and Senate. Steve Bannon provides some counter-balance to the establishment forces.

  • daPenguin

    You forgot to add the sarc tags

  • SNuss

    Hopefully, Schumer can’t swim. If Sanders takes over, they can change their name to the Socialist/Marxist Party.

  • daPenguin

    Shhh. Don’t disturb their fan boy fantasy

  • SNuss

    His children are experienced business professionals, and Trump doesn’t have to watch his back.

  • TrojanMan

    IMO Bannon and Rinse Repeat are very poor choices thus far. It would seem, nepotism, favoritism, and cronyism has already found its way into the Trump admin. Lets see if the trend continues with the rest of the cabinet.

    It would seem what he meant by “draining the swamp” was draining it of those he deemed unworthy

  • TrojanMan

    Cruz was the original anti-establishment.

  • TrojanMan

    I thought the kiddos were going to run the Trump empire while big daddy was off playing president?

  • Artfuldgr

    Whats your point? your going to be upset no matter what he does, which way he turms, and thats that… nothing is going to make you happy and once that is realized there is no reason to listen to the unreasoned reasoning…

    all your doing is griping about everything, and the man hasnt been president elect for a week yet…

    did you think Cristie was a great choice? no
    did you think keeping cristie was a good choice? no
    did you think dumping cristy is a good choice? no

    http://www.nytimes.com/2016/01/14/us/politics/ted-cruz-wall-street-loan-senate-bid-2012.html?_r=0

    Cruz Loans Not ‘Transparent’
    http://www.factcheck.org/2016/01/cruz-loans-not-transparent/

    and the top press area that stood up for Cruz was NPR:
    The Ted Cruz Goldman Sachs Loan, Explained : NPR

    Cruz did not disclose that he had obtained loans from Goldman Sachs and Citibank that combined were worth between $350,002 and $750,000 until July 9, 2012. That was after his May 29, 2012, primary election, and after he had already loaned his campaign nearly $1 million.

    Cruz took out another Goldman Sachs loan for between $100,001 and $250,000 for his 2012 campaign, but that wasn’t reported on his financial disclosure report until May 15, 2013 — by which time he was already a U.S. senator.

    In both reports, Cruz did not report the loans were for his
    campaign. That was not required by the ethics law, because those forms are simply intended to disclose personal finances (assets, liabilities, etc). But he should have reported using the loans for his campaign in separate campaign reports with the Federal Election Commission. He did not.

  • THOUGHTCRIMINAL2084

    Now this is a civilized discussion!

  • TrojanMan

    I have never had an issue carrying on a respectful conversation with someone i do not agree with. The problem has always become when the other side refuses to be respectful in turn and instead launches into personal attacks when their stance is not echoed. It would seem quite difficult for adults to remain adults behind keyboards.

  • THOUGHTCRIMINAL2084

    I concur. We mostly agree on policy, it is how we get there that seems to be our difference. The same went for most of the frequenters of this site including its creator and owner Mr. Blount.

    I am more of a pragmatist and realist, though ideally we would have the world you guys want.

    I come from Brooklyn, my views have been shaped by witnessing a lifetime of corruption. Schumer and Weiner were my representatives. My state assemblymen is in prison for taking bribes for 30+ years and using the money to expand he and his boyfriend’s home that used to belong to Anthony ‘Gaspipe’ Casso who murdered the architect, rather than pay him.

  • jtm371

    Good never liked the fat jersey pos. No lose net gain

  • Ol’ Uncle Lar

    Small point: Transition team and Administration are two different things. Kiddos stated on 60 Minutes they did not want to be part of the actual Administration

  • KirklesWorth
  • NotKennedy

    Bannon would not have been on my short list. As it were, he and Trump probably have much in common.

  • NotKennedy

    Probably my own naiveté but I am not convinced that Big Fat Daddy knew or approved of the bridge lanes business. Irrespective, it happened on his shift. If anyone in his administration had enough import to do what they did, and he didn’t know about it, it would be sufficient to not rely on him in a position of greater authority or responsibility.

    But… imagine him dealing with the Department of Education in the manner by which he handled the New Jersey teacher unions. Could he be worse than Arne Duncan or Obama’s Ambassador of Pederasty (and similar perversions), Kevin La’Queer?

    Rejoice, for now, we may have seen the last of Podesta and the beginning of the end for his cohort.

  • 762×51

    All you vomit sacks love to throw around “Goldman Sachs”, that is until we talk about Steven Mnuchin, a former Goldman Sachs partner and George Soros money manager. Aww well, he’s just fine, no problem there, ROTFLMFAO!!!

    tRump apologists, Obama apologists, Hillary apologists, same stench different decay.

  • 762×51

    Great, now tell us about Trump Campaign Finance Chairman and Treasury Sec. short list Steven Mnuchin, a former Goldman Sachs partner and George Soros money manager . . . well?

  • 762×51

    Hey jerklesTwerp, GFY. ROTFLMAO!!

  • 762×51

    Small point, the transition team people ALWAYS end up with high positions in the administration. It’s a distinction without a difference.

  • barfomer
  • Mr. Freemarket

    Yes…but he voted for TPP and his wife worked for Goldman Sacs, and his father was involved in the plot to kill Kennedy. Plus, Cruz never had that much of a cult following. And you know how people hate rival cults.

  • KirklesWorth

    Laughing loser fires a few synapses for another literary gem. It was much funnier the 44+ times you’ve said “go f__k yourself” before…unless this time you mean “good for you” like TrojanMan claims: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44

    But of course, what can you expect from an idiot that comes up with:

    762×51: Not only is tRump a surefire loser but he will also cause the loss of the Senate and possibly even the House. The Trumpanzee Progressives have done what they set out to do, elect Hillary Clinton.

  • KirklesWorth

    You mean victors as opposed to losers? Patriots as opposed to deserters? Intelligent as opposed to moronic? Who is the “vomit sack” in this scenario? Nevermind, you to thick to figure it out.

  • Daniel

    Agreed but abuse of government power is deadly… very deadly. If Trump is in this to drain the swamp, he cannot allow compromises in his own administration. If he does, anything he does in the name of justice will be framed as being done in the name of vengeance.

  • Mr. Freemarket

    So you think a 20 year sentence is justified?

    Justice, by its very nature, is a compromise. No one died. No one was actually denied their civil rights. At most, people were inconvenienced and delayed. Orange barrels on the freeway during the weekend when no one is working are equally oppressive. Maybe we should start looking for malefactors in the highway department.

  • 762×51

    Easy, Bannon is an alt-right bigot, just look at the anti-antisemitism, and misogyny present on Breitbart now that was never there when Andrew was alive. Choosing Bannon and Rinse Penis as his top two advisers is the equivalent of choosing David Plouffe and Val Jar.

  • 762×51

    Hey, speaking of vomit sacks, how’s your wife, princess?

    Still waiting for you to say all this crap to my face, coward.

  • 762×51

    Only 44? Better recount, jerkles, I’m sure I have said to you waaaaayy more than that.

    ALL of the available data, right up to Nov 7th had your boy down an average of 2 – 3 points. I didn’t come up with that you vile little toad, vast news and polling organizations with millions of dollars in resources came up with it.

    Now GFY – 45!

  • KirklesWorth

    Said “boy” is the president-elect you buffoon. You believed the progressive crap hook, line, and sinker like a good little lefty lemming. Your master Torcer shoved all that liberal polling down your willing throat and you swallowed it whole. And now you are too stupid to play it casual. But let’s review:

    762×51: Not only is tRump a surefire loser but he will also cause the loss of the Senate and possibly even the House. The Trumpanzee Progressives have done what they set out to do, elect Hillary Clinton.

    Lets examine how many things are wrong in just two sentences:

    1. Trump a “surefire loser”
    2. Will cause “loss of the Senate”
    3. Could possibly cause loss of the House
    4. Trump supporters (Trumpanzees) are “progressives”
    5. Trump supporters “set out” to elect Hillary
    6. Trump supporters succeded in electing Hillary

    You demean yourself with your own words – I’m just happy to remind you of them.

  • KirklesWorth

    Just when I thought you couldn’t be a more vile, revolting scumbag, you pull a stunt like that. You are such a mental midget that you resort to the lowest of the low. What’s next, “yo mama”? Wanting to kill “progressives” wasn’t low enough for you. Trying to get Hillary elected wasn’t low enough for you. You do the most cowardly thing possible and speak about my wife. No wonder your progressive overlords forsake you – they require at least a smidgen of honor and integrity – and you have none.

    In case I haven’t made this perfectly clear, we have no intention of getting within a mile of your lying, loser, unintelligent, dishonorable, wannabe “progressive”-killing, Hillary-helping, wannabe “civil war” fighting, republican party defecting, progressive-helping, republican candidate hating, latent-homosexual, sadomasochistic, integrity-lacking, so-called “conservative” face.

  • Bridget Kelly and the other former aides of Christie were convicted in federal court for violations of federal crimes when Christie threw them under the bus.

    Therefore, Trump could give them all pardons as soon as he takes office.
    It would be a final slap in the face for Christie from the POTUS.

    Just my opinion.

    Of course you won’t princess, because you are a coward, I know it, you know it and your wife knows it. You can only say that sh!t from the safety of your keyboard. From there you are safe and everyone has to listen your whining abuse because a weasel like you can’t impose themselves on anyone in real life. Everyone would simply laugh at you, recognizing you for the toady you are.

    I accept your offer though, a mile is a long shot, requires about 28 or 29 mils of hold over with my current load, depending on the density altitude, but I have the tools and training to accomplish it. When would you like to get this done? The sooner you are gone, the happier everyone, including your wife will be. Then she can find herself a real man instead of a sniveling Progressive wiener lover like you. Someone she won’t be ashamed of.

  • KirklesWorth

    You are a psychotic broken record. Any insult from you is a compliment – thanks. You’ve already demonstrated how pathetically inane your “political analysis” is, and how there is no level too low that you will stoop to divert focus away from your incompetent (or completely missing) brain. Haven’t you received your Darwin Award yet?

    If you want to trade insults, how about this:

    I gave you too much credit – you don’t have the integrity or the intelligence to be a progressive – that’s why you mindlessly do what they do in the hopes they will accept you into their fold. That’s why you parrot their words, attack their enemies, and generally do their bidding for them while trying not to blow your cover as a “conservative”. You’re an undercover progressive like you are a latent-homosexual. You walk the walk, talk the talk, and both get you trying to screw others and getting into deep crap.

    Do you like that one, or is it too subtle and lacking profanities? In case I haven’t made this perfectly clear (which I have), nobody here takes orders, demands, requests, invites, etc. from you contrary to your violent fascist fantasies. Furthermore, nobody has any intention of getting within a mile of your lying, loser, unintelligent, dishonorable, wannabe “progressive”-killing, Hillary-helping, wannabe “civil war” fighting, republican party defecting, progressive-helping, republican candidate hating, latent-homosexual, sadomasochistic, integrity-lacking, wife-insulting, so-called “conservative” face.

  • 762×51

    I shall do as I please, wiener breath.

    So you now presume to speak for all, having taken charge after your cult victory. SS-Rottenführer jerkleTwerp, giving orders and keeping an eye on things, LMFAO!! Others may have balls, unlike you and wish to participate in such an event. Are you saying you will prohibit them from do so? Fascist much twerpleJerk?

    You sure do love Progressives, being one yourself. Probably also helps being one in order to stomach being a Republican these days. As Reagan said, “I didn’t leave the party, the party left me”. The Republican Party today is so overrun with Progressive maggots like you I have no intentions of ever supporting it again.

    Your comical little “laundry” list that you rattle off with every post is quite funny. It really defines you, the only reason you so hate me because I refuse to surrender to your cult and being the dirty fascist bastard you are, you just can’t stand that. Therefore, anyone who disagrees with you, your ideology or your cult is automatically the things on your list. It demonstrates every time that you are EXACTLY what I have characterized you to be. A sniveling fascist Progressive who thinks he so important that he can “keep and eye on things” and is entitled to push around those who will not comply with his demands.

    The thing that makes me laugh every time is that it never occurs to you that no one thinks of you as anything but a self aggrandized dung beetle, pushing your turd in front of you everywhere you go. Because you can’t back any of it up, none of your BS means anything to anyone who reads it. Nothing is funnier than a fascist weakling.

    Now, GFY.

  • KirklesWorth

    Please! Absolutely do what you please – and that seems to be exposing your ignorance and your latent homosexuality. But you gave me quite a tome to school you on:

    “So you now presume to speak for all” – wrong. Liar.
    “having taken charge after your cult victory” – wrong. Liar.
    “SS-Rottenführer jerkleTwerp, giving orders” – wrong. Liar.
    “keeping an eye on things” – and yet here you are obsessed with me – I told you I don’t swing that way.
    “Others may have balls” – yes they do, and even the women have more balls than you, but nobody accepts your ridiculous “invitation” to be murdered.
    “Are you saying you will prohibit them from do so?” – nope, but you are too stupid to comprehend nobody will because they are all infinitely smarter than you.
    “Fascist much twerpleJerk?” – nope, that would be you trying to giving orders, segregating them into extermination groups, and threatening to kill them for your so-called “thoughtcrimes”.
    “You sure do love Progressives” – wrong. Liar. Although they are many times better than a lowlife like you.
    “being one yourself” – wrong. Liar. The one siding with, speaking like, and admiring progressives is you.
    As Reagan said, “I didn’t leave the party, the party left me”.You dare quote Reagan after completely ignoring and rejecting his 11th commandment? What a fool!
    “The Republican Party today is so overrun with Progressive maggots” – this is the closest to the truth I could cringingly support – and you tried to make it even worse. You probably helped get Obama elected too.
    “Progressive maggots like you” – wrong again. Liar
    “I have no intentions of ever supporting it again.” – perfect! Please feel free to do your progressive masters’ bidding where it won’t expose you for the fraud that you are.

    Oh, you want to see my “laundry list” again? Sure, no prob! You know my favorite is this complete failure:

    762×51: Not only is tRump a surefire loser but he will also cause the loss of the Senate and possibly even the House. The Trumpanzee Progressives have done what they set out to do, elect Hillary Clinton.

    And now you’ve given me your admission that you would cowardly ambush and murder me if I got within a mile of you:

    <762×51: I accept your offer though, a mile is a long shot, requires about 28 or 29 mils of hold over with my current load, depending on the density altitude, but I have the tools and training to accomplish it.

    “list that you rattle off with every post is quite funny” – excellent, I’m glad you approve! I will surely continue.
    “the only reason you so hate me” – the one who expressed hate is you: Nothing but hate for you and all other Progressives.
    “because I refuse to surrender to your cult” – big cult, the people of the United States. It sure beats your cult of stupidity of which you are the leader and the sole member.
    being the dirty fascist bastard you are – wrong. Liar – that would be you with your demands and your threats.
    “you just can’t stand that” – wrong. Liar. What are you talking about? I frequently encourage you!
    “anyone who disagrees with you” – wrong. You mean since you disagree with me.
    “your ideology or your cult” – yes we know you are anti-conservative and anti-American, we get that.
    “is automatically the things on your list” – ooh, not my scary list! I should tell the Disqus people to rename it “KirklesWorth’s Scary List”!
    “It demonstrates every time that you are EXACTLY what I have characterized you to be. A sniveling fascist Progressive” – only in delusional mind would call somebody supporting the republican-elect president and his supporters that. And funny, I don’t capitalize “progressive” like you do – looks like you offer them great respect. And you do the ordering around and threatening like a fascist, not me.
    “who thinks he so important that he can ‘keep and eye on things'” – oh my gosh! I keep an eye on things! How terrible! Good thing Psychotroll doesn’t keep an eye on things yet somehow swoops in and protects everybody from “fascists” and “progressives” that want Hillary elected – oops, that was you.
    “entitled to push around those who will not comply with his demands” – the only “demand-er” here is you. The only fascist requiring compliance is you.

    The last paragraph is a self-parodying biography:

    The thing that makes me laugh every time is that it never occurs to you that no one thinks of you as anything but a self aggrandized dung beetle, pushing your turd in front of you everywhere you go. Because you can’t back any of it up, none of your BS means anything to anyone who reads it. Nothing is funnier than a fascist weakling.

    “Now, GFY.” – I told you, I don’t take your fascist orders.
