The time has long passed that anyone actually cared about New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and his self-inflicted political demise. Even the governor himself doesn’t seem to care what anyone thinks of him or his legacy as he wheezes into his last few months in office.
Case in point: he and the New Jersey legislature got into a tiff over the state budget, which had to be passed by last Friday or the state government would shut down. Well, they didn’t, so over the weekend the state closed all the state parks and facilities on one of the biggest beach weekends of the summer, closing out millions of tourists and their dollars. But Gov. Christie and his family spent the weekend at the beach because he can.
But there was one family there: Christie’s. They are using the summer beach house provided by the state for a weekend down the Shore.
Christie told reporters Saturday that the the beach house is separate from the park and that his family will not ask for any state services.
Asked if this is fair, Christie said Saturday: “Run for governor, and you can have a residence there.”
It must be nice to live a life where you don’t care if the entire world thinks you’re an asshole.
