The Governor of New Jersey called the NRA pro-gun ad “reprehensible” for going after the nation’s First Daughters. The ad said President Obama is a “hypocrite” because his children are protected by armed guards, and other kids aren’t.
Governor Chris Christie isn’t afraid to speak his mind, especially when it comes to his views on how politics are played — and is his mind, the NRA anti-gun control ad that went after President Barack Obama and his daughters Sasha and Malia was over the line.
During a press conference on Jan. 17, Governor Christie was asked what he thought about the NRA advertisement, which called Obama “elitist” and a “hypocrite” for allowing his daughters to be protected by arm guards 24/7, but still keeping our schools a gun-free zone.
Chris Christie Speaks Out Against The NRA Advertisement
“I think any of us who are public figures, you see that kind of ad and you cringe,” the Governor of New Jersey said.
“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,” he added according to NorthJersey.com.
“Don’t be dragging people’s children into this,” Governor Christie 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.”
