Gov. Chris Christie: “I’d Do It Again”

Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ) joins Morning Joe’s Joe Scarborough, Mika Brzezinski and Mike Barnicle to talk about his experience working with President Barack Obama in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy in 2012, as the panel discussed President Donald Trump’s visit to Texas following the devastation of this week’s Tropical Storm Harvey. “You’ve lived through it. You’ve presided over it….You’re still going through the recovery process in New Jersey and the enormous cost of it. But in the middle of it, the reaction to it, you have a president arriving in Texas. You had a president arriving in New Jersey and there’s an infamous picture that you paid a political price for, some would argue, of you and Barack Obama. Tell us about Barack Obama arriving in New Jersey and dealing with the people of New Jersey,” Barnicle asks. Hear Christie’s response about the complicated politics involved at the time. “I’d do it again,” he said of his dealings with President Obama. “It’s what you’re paid to do.”
