Chris Christie Gets Smacked Down After Trying To Push False Equivalency Between Gore And Trump – Gracemont Gazette

Read Time:3 Minute, 28 Second


There cannot possibly be any similarities between the 2000 Bush v. Gore’s election, which came down to 543 votes in Florida, and the 2020 election, which came down to well over 1,000 votes in every single state that Trump contested and – more importantly, how each losing candidate dealt with the result. Indeed, Trump’s words regarding Georgia continue to ring in one’s ears: “I only need 11,000 votes, fellas. I need 11,000 votes. Give me a break.” But Chris Christie didn’t need numbers to make a false equivalency. No, Christie actually equated the elections in a far more offensive way, American faith in their legitimacy.

Somehow, despite his sordid past and prior work for Trump himself, Christie was on ABC News’s coverage of the Committee’s hearings. While the panel discussed the damage Trump’s lies caused with respect to election integrity, Christie described it as part of an overall larger pattern in that people did not accept the results of the 2000 election and the 2016 Hillary Clinton versus Donald Trump election.

Video of Christie:

Obviously, Christie was so far out of bounds and, frankly – offensive that it is stunning that David Muir didn’t make his rebuke harsher. Al Gore simply fought his case in court, and when the final court spoke, Gore conceded, and the country acknowledged that Bush won the election without regard to being unhappy about how it came about. There was no question as to the constitutional legitimacy of Bush’s election. Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton conceded on the night of the election. And, despite the fact that Democrats were angry upon hearing about Russian assistance (and possible collusion), no Democrat believed that somehow proving collusion would make Hillary Clinton president. It is an absurd equivalency.

The comparison was enough to set Twitter afire as “Chris Christie” managed to trend at a higher rate than any of the compelling testimony that came about within the hearing itself.
