Chris Christie: NRA Ad ‘Reprehensible’
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie isn’t mincing words when it comes to his opinion of the NRA’s new ad focusing on the President’s children:
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie blasted the National Rifle Association for an ad that pointed out President Barack Obama’s daughters have armed protection, calling it “reprehensible” and saying elected officials’ kids should be off-limits.
“I think any of us who are public figures, you see that kind of ad and you cringe,” he said during a news conference at which he announced a task force on guns and mental health.
“I’m a father who is a public figure, who has four children and my children had no choice realistically in what I decided to do with my career and what effect that has had on their lives,” Christie said, according to a NorthJersey.com blog post.
“Don’t be dragging people’s children into this,” he said. “It’s wrong and I think it demeans them and it makes them less of a valid trusted source of information on the real issues that confront this debate.”
