The View co-hosts absolutely lost it over a clip of ABC News analyst and former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie vowing to take on former President Donald Trump, and do to him what he “did to Marco.”
During an appearance at St. Anselm’s College in New Hampshire on Monday, Christie explained that he plans to defeat Trump the same way he defeated Marco Rubio in a 2016 debate.
On Friday, co-host Whoopi Goldberg said, “Chris Christie gave his party a warning about what any potential candidate would be up against. Take a look.”
She then played the clip:
CHRIS CHRISTIE: Donald Trump said a couple of weeks ago “I am your retribution.” Guess what, everybody? No, thanks.
He doesn’t want to be my retribution. That’s baloney. The only person he cares about is him.
You better have somebody on that stage who can do to him what I did to Marco. Because that’s the only thing that’s gonna defeat Donald Trump. And that means you’ve got to have the skill to do it. And that means you have to be fearless. Because he will come back. And right at you.
Co-host Joy Behar then said through laughter, “What did he do to Marco?”
Cue more laughter, before Goldberg could response, “It’s like a horror movie. I mean, first of all, who? Marco who? What did you do to Marco? I don’t know who Marco, who is Marco? Polo?”
Alyssa Farah Griffin stopped belly laughing long enough to chime in, “He means Rubio, but he’s making it sound like he’s, like, in his basement or something.”
Behar replied, “Well Marco’s little. And Christie is big. Maybe he sat on him.”
Sunny Hostin said, “I mean, Trump did give Chris Christie COVID. He gave Chris Christie COVID and he still stuck by him.”
Griffin added, “I don’t remember that chapter. And I know my politics pretty well.”
