New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie appeared on MSNBC's Morning Joe this morning, where he faced off against openly gay Washington Post columnist Jonathan Capehart - and they debated the legalization of gay marriage, which Christie recently vetoed in his state.
In a heated exchange, the governor rudely said “I used to be a prosecutor. I’m not going to be cross-examined by you this morning,“You’re going to lose.”
Capehart ended the segment by stating that the push for gay marriage was analogous to the civil rights movement in the mid-20th century. “We’re talking [about] a civil rights issue. And what African-Americans continue to struggle with is exactly what lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people are struggling with today,” he said.
The New Jersey Governor is so out of touch with the real world. He reminds me of another Governor who was out of touch. Florio? Corzine? Take your pick - either way he's still an asshole. Hopefully a one term asshole.
