Tough guy Chris Christie says he would win a fight with Trump: ‘I’d kick his a**’

Longshot GOP presidential candidate Chris Christie has spent months verbally throwing his weight around with attacks on former President Donald J. Trump and now he has dialed up his rhetoric by claiming that if the two were to match up in a physical fight, he would easily come away as the winner.

“I’d kick his ass,” the former New Jersey governor boasted to Piers Morgan during an interview that aired on “Piers Morgan Uncensored” this week, flexing his tough guy muscles that have leftists and Never Trumpers salivating over a debate between the two bombastic Republicans, a match-up that may never happen with the 2024 frontrunner having expressed wariness about walking into what would be an ambush with kamikaze candidates whom he has already amassed an insurmountable lead against.

“Talking of fighting, if you and Trump got in the ring — he loves his UFC and stuff like that, right? If you got in the octagon, you and him, who would win?” Morgan asked the ABC News pundit.

“Come on,” Christie replied. “The guy’s 78 years old. I’d kick his ass,” he added in a boast that drew hysterical laughter from Morgan.

Morgan then inquired if he would be open to a match against Trump as the undercard of the proposed upcoming battle of tech titans, Twitter owner Elon Musk and Facebook/Meta’s Mark Zuckerberg.

“Look, I’ll fight Donald Trump anywhere he wants, in any arena he wants, whether it’s on a debate stage, or in the octagon,” Christie said.

Morgan then added fuel to the fire, saying “he’s mocked your weight,” referring to Trump’s jabs at the morbidly obese Christie’s ongoing battle with his waistline, including posting a video of the former governor’s announcement of his candidacy to a crowd in New Hampshire that was doctored to show him standing at a buffet line and hoisting an overflowing plate of food in his hand.

“Yeah look at him,” Christie shot back. “Arnold Schwarzenegger…. come on. Here’s the bottom line Pierce, you know for the last 30 years, I’ve struggled with my weight like tens of millions of Americans struggle with their weight,” going to a line that the former prosecutor has repeatedly used to trick voters into believing that Trump is also attacking them for their own weight struggles during his wall-to-wall media appearances. “And there are times when I do well and there are times when I don’t do very well, and it’s a struggle.”

Despite dismal polling numbers, Christie was able to qualify for the upcoming GOP debate based on making the cut by meeting donor requirements which shouldn’t be a problem at all considering how many haters – likely including Democrats – will be supporting him to artificially prop him up for long enough to put the human torpedo candidate into position to sink Trump in front of a national television audience.

Christie made the announcement during another of his CNN appearances, having shown up so much on the cable network that he might as well work there.

He also continues to goad Trump into showing up onstage.

“Sloppy Chris Christie, who is polling at 1% and left his State, New Jersey, with an Approval Rating of 9% (the WORST number in State History), was interviewed on FoxNews (of course!) and stated that I only built 47 miles of Border Wall, knowing that the actual number is 463 Miles, as reported by the Department of Homeland Security,” Trump wrote on Truth Social last week, punching back at Christie’s remarks during a Fox News interview where he called the ex-POTUs a liar. “This does not include many Miles that we fixed or renovated, or areas that I got Mexico to secure. BEST BORDER EVER! He also lied about Russia & many other subjects!”
