WATCH: Chris Christie Gives the Former President an Unbelievable Letter Grade
During an interview with Sean Hannity on Friday night, Chris Christie gave Donald Trump a ridiculous grade for his performance as president.
Christie and Trump have been friends for a very long time. They had quite a feud, though, during the 2016 Republican primary season. Eventually, though, fences were mended after Trump received the party nomination.
And the former New Jersey governor continued to work with the 45th President throughout his term. He seemed to have a conflict of conscience last fall after contracting a bad case of COVID-19. But last night, Christie seemed as sycophantic as ever when it comes to Trump.
The host asked, “How would you grade Trump as President.” Christie responded, “Overall, I’d give the President an A.” The former governor then elaborated, “There were some things that happened specifically at the end of the presidency that I think had some things that clouded his accomplishments, and that’s why we as a party need to emphasize the issues you just talked about.”
It’s a pretty dramatic turn for Christie, who just months ago was calling for Trump to be impeached. He told ABC following the insurrection, “What we had was an incitement to riot at the United States Capitol, we had people killed, and to me there’s not a whole lot of question here.” He continued, “If inciting to insurrection isn’t, [a reason to impeach Trump], then I don’t really know what is.”
