Chris Christie called Hillary Clinton “a disgrace” on Sunday for her recent comments comparing Republicans to terrorist groups.
Clinton, on a campaign stop Thursday, talked about Republicans’ attempts to defend Planned Parenthood, saying, “extreme views about women? We expect that from some of the terrorist groups. We expect that from people who don’t want to live in the modern world, but it’s a little hard to take coming from Republicans who want to be the president of the United States, yet they espouse out-of-date and out-of-touch policies.”
Christie responded sarcastically to Chris Wallace on “Fox News Sunday,” saying, “there’s a real uniter, that’s the woman you want sitting in the Oval Office to bring our country back together. That’s a disgrace and she’s a disgrace.”
Wallace pressed Christie for clarification, asking, “Wait, Hillary Clinton is a disgrace?”
“She’s a disgrace for saying that, for comparing them to terrorist groups, don’t let her go on that, Chris, that’s awful,” Christie told Wallace. “That’s a disgrace, it is a disgrace. Can you imagine if we compared the Democratic Party to terrorist groups? Can you imagine the outrage in the mainstream media for that? Yet she stood up and said that Republicans are like terrorist groups.”
Christie also skewered Clinton on her understanding of “what mainstream America likes,” adding she’s “ignoring what’s really going on at Planned Parenthood.”
“Well, here’s what I don’t think mainstream America’s for, I don’t think mainstream america is for an organization getting federal funding, who kills children in the womb, in a particular way, so that it maximizes the value of their body parts on the open market for sale for profit,” Christie said. “Now if Mrs. Clinton thinks that’s what mainstream America likes, I’m happy to have the debate with her. But of course she doesn’t answer because she doesn’t to want talk about what’s really going on at planned parenthood, she just wants to talk about these vague generalities about ‘war on women.'”
“But I’m not going to be someone who’s going to stand up and allow her to call my party terrorists,” he added.
