Wouldn't it be obvious that Kushner would not like the man who put away his dad for tax evasion?
Supposedly young Kushner drove down every weekend to visit his dad in prison.
Apparently Christie felt he would have gone further in the Trump administration if Kushner wasn't there.

"The ex-governor’s new memoir, released this week, depicts Mr. Kushner, the president’s son-in-law and adviser, as being hellbent on retribution for Mr. Christie’s prosecution of his father more than a decade ago, when Mr. Christie was a United States attorney. Mr. Christie says Steve Bannon, the former Trump strategist, told him Mr. Kushner had directed his firing from the transition team, and he paints Mr. Kushner as a shadow campaign manager and chief of staff who offered questionable advice."

They all offer questionable advice. Everyone involved is incompetent. Christie should be thrilled he was excluded from this dumpster fire of an administration.

It’s a good hook for a book.

I also think Christie’s thesis that things would be a lot better around Trump if he (Christie) had not been fired is correct. Kushner is in way over his head but thinks he’s a genius.

What is worrying is that Kushner is really running the country
He thinks he is a genius, but really he just got lucky marrying a pretty heiress,
whose father later got lucky getting elected President.
Jared did not use his law degree to work his way into the white house, but married into it.

And lucky he had a daddy that could buy his way into Harvard and give him the money for fancy toys.

He once bragged about buying property in Somerville with his dad's money and learning how to multitask because he called a plumber when the toilet in a rental unit broke.

Was his admission to NYU law based on lsat/gpa?
Or is there a hidden story there as well.
His dad made a big donation for him to get into Harvard, then he later assumes his dad's real estate empire, marries Ivanka, and then is placed into the White House.
Would any of this have happened if he came from a poor family?

I saw his interview on Colbert. I think Colbert asked a pertinent question about Christie's book tour- who is going to buy Christie's book? At this point the Trumptards hate him, everyone in NJ hates him, Democrats hate him. I realize there is a market for people who talk smack about Trump but there are many others out there.

I think the appeal would be that the smack talk is coming from a conservative insider. Wolfe and Woodward might tell a compelling narrative, but that is based on second-hand information from primary sources. Christie would have first hand experience and may also have better connections to republicans who dislike Trump but are working for his administration, people who wouldn’t open up to Woodward or Wolfe.

I've seen enough of his story on the news and talk shows.

Perhaps the big guy needs to shuffle off to some cushy private law firm job,
but he refuses to accept his fifteen minutes of fame is over.

Trump ditched Christie when he became disloyal. Christie told the MSM that Trump should pull out of the presidential election of 2016 when the stuff with Billy Bush and "grab em by the pxxxxy" happened. Trump also felt that Christie lied about knowledge of bridge gate.

That said, Christie's heavyweight political debate beat down of bantamweight Boobio was pretty epic. He made mincemeat out of the Establishment's mental midget. For that, Trump supporters will forever be grateful.

Blatant lie, this never happened.

You are right. It may have been Bannon who said Christie told Trump in person he didn't think he could win after the Billy Bush fiasco. Trump lost faith in Christie after that.

trijocker (Jan 30, 2019 - 12:39 pm)

How do you know Bannon didn't want to get rid of Christie as well?
They all appeared to be jockeying to be closest to the king.
Jared disliked Christie for prosecuting his father, but maybe Bannon wanted him out of the way as well, so he nixed Christie being Chief of Staff, so there would be more room for Bannon.

It was Reince Priebus who told Trump to drop out, not Christie. Chris Christie was among the people who told him to stay in the race.

You're making things up.

I guess you weren't right after all. This article jogged my memory. I now remember the MSM reporting that Christie said Trump's comments were "completely indefensible" after the Billy Bush tape came out.

"New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie wasn't selected for President Donald Trump's Cabinet because he didn't support the then-Republican nominee after he bragged on tape that he could grab women "by the puxxy," recently ousted White House chief strategist Steve Bannon says.

Bannon's withering assessment was released by CBS News Friday ahead of his appearance on 60 Minutes on Sunday. In the clip, Bannon revealed inside details of the whirlwind hours on month before the election after The Washington Post obtained a 2005 Access Hollywood recording featuring Trump boasting to on-air personality Billy Bush about his apparent sexual harassment of women.

Over the weekend when the tape was revealed, Christie called Trump's comments "completely indefensible," forever earning Trump's ire, Bannon said.

"Christie, because of 'Billy Bush weekend'…was not looked at for a Cabinet position," Bannon told 60 Minutes correspondent Charlie Rose in the clip. "The Billy Bush Saturday to me is a litmus test. Billy Bush Saturday showed me who really had Donald Trump's back to play to his better angels."

You've gone from "Christie told the MSM trump had to drop out" to "Christie told the MSM Trump can't win" to "Christie didn't defend his comments". And multiple accounts besides Christie have had him getting offered lesser profile cabinet gigs, just not the one he wanted.

I don't know why you're so afraid of admitting that Javanka hold so much power over the President. I thought you were Team Javanka anyways. You've said numerous times you think Jared is a master negotiator and you want to see Ivanka take over after Trump because you want a US Royal family.

All I meant to say and my exact words at 12:19 pm were: "Trump ditched Christie when he became disloyal." Christie may not have directly told the media that he thought Trump should drop out, but he made disparaging comments about what Trump said on the Bush tape. This lead to Trump (as well as many of the president's supporters) viewing Christie as someone who was disloyal, something Bannon later confirmed.

Other than the sake of arguing, I don't know why you are being dishonest. I have also never once said Jared is a master negotiator, and I have never once said I wanted a US Royal family. I don't care for Jared.. or Ivanka, for that matter. I have actually said here in the past that I thought that someone like Mike Pence would be a great president and maybe even Kanye West would be a good leader in the wings to help unite the country since he (mostly) supports the president.

LOL "he made disparaging remarks about a tape that nobody was defending".

Your exact words, I'll never forget them, were "Trump is right about Ivanka, she is one of the world's greatest beauties and minds. We'd be lucky to have her take over and embark on a Trump dynasty in this country that eventually leads to Barron becoming President. MAGA!"
