Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie was on ABC News’ “This Week With George Stephanopoulos” on Sunday, and he said something that caused the partisans on the show’s staff to reveal their true selves on national TV.
Christie said quite correctly that many Republicans don’t consider the House January 6th Committee legitimate because of the way the members were chosen and because they make accusations but don’t allow anyone to give the other side. That set off outrage from host George Stephanopoulos, who declared that there was “no other side,” and panelist Donna Brazile, who was so enraged, she started shouting and barely let Christie get a word out. He did finally get a chance to speak and destroyed their emotional arguments with facts.
Here’s why I love this: they’re outraged at the suggestion that the Committee is biased or refuses to let the other side talk. So outraged that when Christie tried to give the other side, he was shouted down by “professional journalist” and former Bill Clinton campaign advisor/White House communications director George Stephanopoulos…and “ABC News” panelist and former acting chair of the Democratic National Committee, Donna Brazile.
Thanks for that perfect illustration of how unbiased our institutions are, and how they’d never try to suppress the free speech of people who disagree with them.
