    Right now at an Trump rally in Ft. Worth, Texas. That's the third political endorsement I believe for Trump and easily the biggest (that's the joke).

    and people say that Trump is clueless about the political process, dumb, etc.. Trump could have had a Christie endorsement anytime since his exit. He waits until Rubio has positive press, then brings out the Christie card, and all media goodwill is sucked out of Rubio and back to Trump. Now instead of Rubio spiking the ball on his performance, Rubio now has to play catch up and discuss Christie's impact in the race, and if there's still hard feelings about Rubio's malfunction by the hands of Christie.

    Christie is one of the most despised people in his own state. Who cares what he thinks?

    Now we know why Christie never went at Duck during any of the debates.

    Yes that was a great move from Trump. Specially considering what Christie did to Rubio in the debate a couple weeks ago.

    I am starting to think Trump will go all the way to the white house. He comes across more moderate and presidential every day now. In the beginning I wasn't sure how serious he was. But this is just another great political move. He seems to have created a good team around.

    He won re-election by 22 points in a democratic state.

    Can't be that hated.

    He got a congressman and governor in this week. Went from 0 establishment endorsements at the beginning of the week. Think this says more about Christie that Trump.

    Seems to indicate panic by Trump actually. Christie doesn't play well in Super Tuesday States, but come March 5th though to April - that's more his wheel house. Makes me believe Trump had his endorsement in his back pocket and was going to save it for later, but wanted to squelch any momentum Marco might get. If nothing else, Christie will make folks remember what he did to Rubio in that one debate - will probably get played during news coverage of this endorsement.

    Some guy Pastor Jeffress is on stage now praising Trump. His tax exemption should be revoked immediately.


    Edit- As soon as I said that, Trump says he will lift the rules on pastors lobbying.

    He went from beloved to absolutely hated. He had like a 30% approval rating in December. It's likely even lower now.

    That would seal the win for Hillary. Trump already alienates Independents so throwing in a guy who wants to prosecute Marijuana at the Federal level isn't going to win more votes. I myself would vote against them out of principle. A trump/kasich or rubio/kasich ticket are the only ones i would even consider casting a vote towards. Anything else and i am voting against or staying home.

    What a shitty election year.
