WATCH: Jon Stewart Nails Chris Christie's 'Comfort with Corruption'
"Chris Christie is the luckiest man alive," Jon Stewart said on his show last night. Why? Because Christie just happened to have signed an executive order allowing the governor of New Jersey to have his travel expenses paid for by foreign governments, and lo and behold, Christie just took a trip to London on the King of Jordan's dime. "What a coincidence!" Stewart quipped. What are the chances?
Details emerged yesterday that Christie's posh London trip tab was some $30,000, but not to worry, taxpayers, Christie has an explanation at the ready: "I'm going to squeeze all of the juice out of this orange that I can get."
Stewart has to hand it to the Republican presidential aspirant. At least he is honest. “‘Hey, here’s the deal," Stewart said in his thick Tony Soprano New Jersey mobster accent. "I’m gonna get every f*cking thing I can get legally out of this office, including sh*t that I myself made legal.”
Admittedly, Christie's "comfort with corruption" could cost him, and open the door further for Jeb Bush, who, by the way, loves his family and is willing to fight anyone older, weaker and smaller who insults them.
