O’Reilly And Ingraham Defends Christie In Bridge Scandal: He’s Not A Dummy
Chris Christie was criticized for denying that members of his administrations knew about creating a traffic jam on the George Washington Bridge. Bill O’Reilly and Laura Ingraham defended Christie in the bridge scandal.
Christie was conciliatory during the press conference. He apologized and claimed responsibility for the scandal even though he didn’t know about the plan. Christie did fire those that lied to him about the scandal.
Ingraham said Christie did the best he could during such circumstances during the two hour long press conference. She said he needs to decide on what to do moving forward especially when there is going to be a national investigation with the media going after him with a dagger. Ingraham also pointed out that Christie have made a lot of enemies among Republicans. “Christie has got to decide whether he’s going to be a punching bag after this settles down the next couple of days or if he’s going to go right to the people with a positive message for growth and prosperity,” said Ingraham.
O’Reilly brought up The New York Times labeling Christie as a “bully” and suggests that the Democratic party is behind it because they see a possibility of Christie running against Hilary Clinton in 2016. “Any negative about Hilary Clinton from governor Christie’s mouth is going to be portrayed as a bully attacking a woman,” said O’Reilly. Ingraham interrupted saying, “The Republicans is going to let that go and let that germinate, marinate a little bit because there is a lot of Republicans who don’t like Christie.”
Ingraham also praised Christie for firing those who were responsible and taking full responsibility for what has happened. She cited that no one did that during Benghazi, the IRS scandal and Obamacare rollout.
Both O’Reilly and Ingraham said that they don’t believe Christie was involved in the bridge scandal or knew about it. “He’s not a dummy, he wouldn’t do it,” said Ingraham. O’Reilly added, “On every staff, you have loons, they did it and now Christie is taking the heat for it.”
