Republican front-runner Chris Christie thinks that [crscore]Ted Cruz[/crscore] is “the consummate Washington insider.”

In a Sunday interview with TIME Magazine, Christie criticized the comments Cruz made in Thursday’s GOP debate regarding “New York values,” claiming that Republican front-runner Donald Trump “[is] right about” the senator from Texas.

“He’s a guy whose views are often very, very malleable depending upon what he considers to be politically advantageous at the moment,” Christie explained.

Christie also called Cruz “the most inside guy in this race.”

“I think Ted once again is trying to be Mr. Ivy League cute,” he told TIME. “He’s Harvard and Princeton, he’s federal court clerkships, he’s government jobs, and somehow he’s an outsider? If you took his name off and you put that resume down, that would look like the consummate Washington insider.”
