Republican and former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie took time on Sunday to berate President Donald Trump’s legal strategies, saying they are “an absurdity.”
Christie had delivered his remarks during an appearance on ABC’s “This Week.”
ABC News Anchor Martha Raddatz began the show by addressing Christie directly, “You have said numerous times the president should just end his quest to overturn the election results. But he continues to dispute it, with 60 percent of Republicans in the House supporting that Texas case.“
Raddatz then asked Christie, “What’s your message to the Republicans?“
Christie responded by first addressing Trump’s legal strategy saying “Well, listen, the legal theory put forward by his legal team and by the president is an absurdity.“
“And the reason why the Supreme Court didn’t take it is because it’s an absurd idea to think that any state or any number of states, no matter how good they are, can challenge another state’s right to run the election as they see fit.“
Christie continued “And, also, there’s no evidence. As we have — as I have been saying since election night, show us the evidence. And what’s gotten even worse, though, Martha, I think, is the attacks by the president on good, hardworking, decent Republican governors.“
Referring to Trump’s public rebuke of how Georgia Governor Brian Kemp and Arizona Governor Doug Ducey has handled the elections in their states, Christie said, “Now, after the election is over, and he lost Arizona and Georgia, he says they’re RINOs that are working harder against him. He’s calling them corrupt, and also telling people things that aren’t true.“

Christie was one of the first establishment Republicans to get behind Trump after the 2016 presidential election. However, the ex-governor has publically distanced himself from the President over the past several weeks.
