Chris Christie Calls Donald Trump’s Lewd Talk ‘Completely Indefensible’ – But ‘Still Supporting’ Him Anyway

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is “still supporting” Donald Trump, despite calling the GOP presidential candidate’s recently published lewd sexual comments “completely indefensible.”

Christie appeared on WFAN’s “Boomer and Carton” radio show Tuesday morning and finally discussed Trump’s conversation with Billy Bush in which Trump essentially brags about making sexual advances to married women.

“It is completely indefensible. I won’t defend it and haven’t defended it,” Christie said.

Carton then asked Christie if he thinks Trump’s apology was enough and the governor replied, “I didn’t think it was.”

Christie continued: “I told him that. I would have done it much differently. I do think he’s sorry and I do think he’s embarrassed by it. No question in mind about it, I was there when he found out about it. There is no question in my mind he’s embarrassed by it.”

The politician said he is “still supporting Donald,” but “was disappointed by what happened” and also disappointed by Trump’s initial response.

While discussing the interview on “Morning Joe,” MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough said, “It wasn’t really a strong, robust defense of Donald Trump.”

“It wasn’t as strong as they’d like in Trump Tower, but compared to people who have abandoned Trump completely, it’s the least of their worries right now,” Bloomberg’s Mark Halperin added.

Christie was one of the first prominent Republicans to publicly support Trump and many insiders felt he was going to be the vice president on the GOP ticket, but that honor went to Mike Pence.
