‘Alright, calm down’: Chris Christie advised angry Donna Brazile to pipe down on her abortion rant

Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie counseled Donna Brazile on getting control of herself during a discussion about Gov. Ron DeSantis signing a bill banning abortions in Florida after 6 weeks.

“I think at the heart of this conversation with the abortion pill is whether or not we’re going to allow politicians to pretend to be doctors,” the former DNC head said on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday. “A judge who’s not a doctor to say that this medication is somehow or another unsafe and should be restricted or not available.”

“This is going to be a liability to the Republicans,” Brazile added. “I got so much in my mind about it. I’m so angry about what’s happening.”

“Alright, calm down,” Christie advised, to no avail.

“I’m angry because of what it’s doing to women in this country,” Brazile shot back. “I’m angry because it’s setting us back. I’m also angry because, once again, men are telling us what to do with our bodies. It’s time that they stop and understand the ramifications and repercussions of this.”

One can just imagine how Christie’s advice went over:

Christie’s position was that Republicans could get elected while opposing abortion rights.

“Look, I was pro-life governor in New Jersey, which is one of the most pro-choice states in America,” he said.

“But you weren’t attempting to ban abortion in New Jersey,” ABC host Jonathan Karl countered, exaggerating the position some GOP-led states are taking.
