Chris Christie: Ted Cruz Is Lying About Voting Against Sandy Relief Because The Bill Was Pork-Filled [VIDEO]

NJ.com reports:

Gov. Chris Christie slammed Texas Sen. Ted Cruz Tuesday night for saying two-thirds of the Hurricane Sandy relief aid had “nothing to do with Sandy.” Christie, speaking on MSNBC a day after Cruz made the assertion on the same network the prior day, called the lawmaker out by name and accused him of exploiting national disasters for his own political gain.

“The fact of the matter is that is an absolute falsehood that two-thirds of the $50 billion didn’t go to Sandy aid. It’s an absolute falsehood,” he said. “Let’s remember what Sen. Cruz was trying to do at the time: He was trying to be the most conservative, the most fiscally conservative person in the world.” A 2013 Congressional Research Report debunks Cruz’s two-thirds statement.

    This just in…lying liar lies.

  • Gustav2

    Gov Christie lied or tried to spin a whole host of things Trumpian in the rest of the interview.

    • Librarykid

      This is not surprising. He’s a scumbag, too.

  • Tulle Christensen

    wait, no infighting is funny tag?

    • Gustav2

      Because give Cruz an excuse by saying Cruz was trying to be the most fiscal conservative person in the world. It was just politics.

  • netxtown

    I know we have to consider the source – but anything from anyone that reveals spots and patches of the slimy underbelly of Ted Cruz is absolutely fine with me.

    “No, no, wait for it, seriously. So they’re getting fired everyday from the White House, we’re talking at record rates, and then the ones left eat each other. With Christie, that’s a huge meal! They’re all pissing about whose state got the most, what, money? Laws passed? Power? No, water! They’re pissing on about reactions to a shitload of water, which they both sucked at!”

      They’re both outsiders though.

      You know the old joke about “would you have sex with me for a dollar/a million dollars/just negotiating a price?”

      Well Cruz sold himself for ten dollars and Christie sold himself for a million dollar bum cheque.

      • Oscarlating Wildely

        I so thought that you were going to end that with “who would you rather have sex with for a million dollars, Chrisite or Cruz? and I found myself barfing a little.”

        • Reality.Bites

          Oh god no!

          I’d at least do you the courtesy of a gun to your head! I might pay you a million dollars afterwards, but it’s unfair to put such monetary pressure on you. Much kinder to let you think death awaits indecision.

          • Tulle Christensen

            I am sixty and have had a good life so not sure even a gun would work in this case

          • Reality.Bites

            Don’t force me to make this ugly, Tulle!

      I can only hope that Mrs Clinton knows how much better the country would be doing right about now if things had gone differently and she held the office. I’m deeply sorry and disappointed that she didn’t get the opportunity to show her abilities.

      • Librarykid

        Frankly, if the world or the United States has to end, I would rather it end under a totally Republican-controlled government.

        Cock? More like a wee-wee … attached to a dick.

    Ugh. Beached whale vs blob fish and all fighting for Jabba’s affections. A film I never need to see. Too bad this is real.

    And if anybody knows from “pork-filled”, it’s Chris Christie.

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    While infighting can be fun, it can simultaneously be quite depressing and demoralizing. These people are just so fake god damned scummy.

  • Chris Gardner

    For all of the people here just making fun of Christie about his weight, you are doing the same thing that Trump did when he made fun of a handicap reporter. You’re no better than the 10 year-old bully on the playground. Shame on you all. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/d070a524aceb18cd15efcfe3ef7e9c0ed4bcf1b3ec9119bc67aba06af33e4e8a.gif

    • John30013

      Agreed. If his weight is not germane to the topic at hand, it’s best to avoid it altogether. It’s nothing more than ad hominem, and we’re better than that here.

    • Chucktech

      I agree and I never use that as a cudgel for his bad behavior, but I’m hardly moved to tears that bully Christie is being bullied. And while being overweight may or may not be to bad lifestyle choices, being disabled certainly isn’t and being mocked for it is, needless to say, beyond the pale.

    • JCF

      Christie is a douchebag at any weight.

    • ian

      Well except Christies weigh is a choice. A disability is not. While many overweight people struggle, and it is a difficult struggle, Christie chooses ballpark Nachos as part of his diet. His unconcern with his size and health is an example of his privilege. But you are right in that his weight has nothing to do with his beef with Cruz.

  • BobSF_94117

    Why the FUCK does he refer to Cruz’s goal as “trying to be the most fiscally conservative”????

    • greenmanTN

      Because that’s what Cruz was doing. It was right when the Tea Party people came in and he was trying to establish himself as King TP.

      • BobSF_94117

        The TP’s position is NOT fiscally conservative. It is fiscally reckless.

    • -M-

      Yeah. Pose as fiscally conservative maybe. But all these are empty labels with these people, they’re not conservative, not fiscally responsible, certainly not upholding the Constitution, not “plain talking” or practical …

  • bkmn

    Gee, I wonder why he didn’t go on Fox to say this

  • Friday

    Actually, it wasn’t just playing politics, …any disaster in a Red State is something Republicans use to grab up Federal money, and any disaster affecting Blue states is an opportunity for economic warfare by blocking said money, ie Flint, Sandy, even cutting the tsunami warning network for the Pacific coast, etc.

  • CJAS

    Chris Christie is right on that point.

  • justmeeeee

    When Chris Christie emerges as the voice of calm and reason, it’s time to bend over and kiss your ass good-bye.

  • Bluto
  • Vira

    Chris Christie looks like he is about to explode with hatred and embitterment. Nice to see him aimed at Ted Cruz for the moment.

    Ever closer to an early death, Chris. Keep movin’.

  • boobert

    Sandy money got used for all kinds of things unrelated to the storm, and fat ass knows it. Homeowners that lost everything were burdened with so much paperwork that many gave up. You had to fight for years to get what was promised. Also, wealthy got vacation homes rebuilt way before people got funds for their only home. Texas will soon find out.

  • JCF

    OK, let’s do it. Benefit for Harvey AND Sandy victims: Cage-match. Two Rethug douchebags, Cruz & Christie, Enter. One leaves. Get yer tickets here!
