Christie pushed back on the notion that he never spoke out against Trump in the past, and claimed recent criticism of the president has nothing to do with 2024.
Christie said that if Flynn is not in the Oval Office then bad ideas, like imposing martial law, will also stay out of the Oval Office.
While Christie and Colbert have overcome their political differences in the past, that may not be the case going forward if Trump is reelected.
Chris Christie says Trump is sensitive about Russian meddling in the 2016 election because he believes it makes the election less valid.
On "Late Night," Seth Meyers took “A Closer Look” at Republican Donald Trump’s recent announcement to the press regarding President Barack Obama and birtherism.
The convention stage was occupied chiefly by two of Donald Trump’s children, Tiffany Trump and Donald Jr., who praised their father in the generous terms you’d expect from any child in this situation.
The headliner of the night was Melania Trump, introduced by candidate-husband Donald Trump, and both entering to “We Are The Champions” as the ghost of Queen’s Freddie Mercury strained to escape from Cincinnati. Hours before her speech, CNN correspondent Jim Acosta gave us this hot reportorial scoop: “I’ve been told he’s going to show some warm, genuine, loving affection toward his wife.” One more seductive adjective there, and Acosta might have been mistaken for Barry White. CNN contextualized speaker Antonio Sabato, Jr. with this chyron running beneath his convention speech: “His Calvin Klein billboard hung across the Trump Tower in the 1990s.” Chris Cuomo tried to set up high expectations for Melania Trump with praise-by-condescension: “She’s very intelligent and very accomplished!” he yelped with an earnestness colored by disbelief.
The announcement of the death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia on Saturday led to a subdued beginning for the CBS-sponsored Republican debate held in South Carolina. Moderator John Dickerson led the hall and the six candidates in a moment of silence out of respect for Scalia. What followed, however, was the opposite of silence: The candidates occasionally yelled at each other, accused each other of lies, dishonesty, and misogyny, and felt the lusty boos of an audience that sometimes sounded as though they were at a pro wrestling match. The first 15 minutes found all six men saying vehemently that President Obama should not put forth a replacement for the Supreme Court. Donald Trump took this sentiment a step further, encouraging the Republican-led Senate to halt Obama with this strategy: “It’s called delay, delay, delay.” The rest of the night was occupied with addressing topics such as immigration, foreign policy, and the economy.

Verbal punches were thrown and the New Hampshire audience booed as though they were at a bare-knuckle brawl during ABC’s Saturday-night Republican debate. Marco Rubio was on the receiving end of some of the most punishing blows. The debate began like a bad Saturday Night Live sketch, with Ben Carson jamming up the entry-way onto the stage by refusing to take his place at the podium.
Donald Trump thought he was going to be attacked by Megyn Kelly, and pulled out of the Fox News-Google Republican debate. Ted Cruz ended up being the guy who was attacked on Thursday night—not by Kelly, but by a couple of his opponents. Marco Rubio and Rand Paul aimed a number of direct hits at Cruz, and in terms of television drama, that made Cruz the chief protagonist (and antagonist) of the debate.
The first Republican debate of 2016 was a wild and woolly affair, with the Magniloquent Seven cowboys–Jeb Bush, Donald Trump, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, Chris Christie, Ben Carson, and John Kasich–doing a lot of rootin’ tootin’ shootin’: at Hillary Clinton, at President Obama, at each other.

Governor Chris Christie’s appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Monday night was a good argument for implementing a new federal campaign law that would ban politicians running for office from going on late-night talk shows — or at least from appearing on The Tonight Show.
