How Long Ago Was It When Chris Christie Said Trump Didn’t Have the ‘Temperament’ to be President?

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, a failed RINO presidential candidate whose approval rating in his home state recently hit a new and embarrassingly low 29 percent, threw his weight and endorsement behind his “friend,” bombastic billionaire and reality TV actor Donald Trump on Friday.

So today, as you might expect, Trump magically now thinks that the sun rises and sets with Chris Christie, but it wasn’t that way during the campaign.

Today, Trump described RINO Chris Christie, who has seen his state hit with a record nine credit downgrades during his tenure, as a “real standout,” a “spectacular governor,” a “wonderful, loyal person,” and a “real talent,” etc.

The accolades were oozing. Perhaps they’ve made some “deals.”

But in December, after the Union Leader New Hampshire newspaper endorsed someone other than him — then candidate Chris Christie — the publisher was called a “loser,” “lowlife,” and a “sleazebag” by Trump.

If Chris Christie was such a wonderful person and governor, then why would Donald Trump protest so vehemently?

Christie’s public opinion of Trump has also changed drastically and suddenly. On Friday he said that there is “no one better prepared to provide America with the strong leadership that it needs” than the real estate tycoon.

But in August, the rotund governor was singing a different tune about Trump, questioning the hot-head’s temperament to be president, as many Americans do after having the unfortunate experience of checking out his Twitter feed.

“Donald’s a great guy and a good person. But I just don’t think that he’s suited to be president of the United States,” he told Fox News host Greta Van Susteren as they walked along the Jersey Shore in August. “I don’t think his temperament is suited for that and I don’t think his experience is.”

So which is it, Trump? Is Chris Christie a great governor or a horrible one? Which is it Christie? Is Trump the leader that America needs or does Trump’s unhinged Trumpertantrums make him unsuited for the presidency?
