Christie: GOP Primary Voters Don’t ‘Give a Damn’ What the NYT Thinks

‘The editorial is interesting … on the one hand, it says, I’m not competent to be a presidential candidate, but on the other hand, it says, he’s competent enough to go back and fix New Jersey’

CUOMO: "A good test of how someone deals with adversity, you had it with the "New York Times." love them, hate them, they have insurance. They say, it's time for Governor Christie to drop out. You didn't see the editorial. This happened last week. You say, a great quote in response, 'I know I'm going to be the next president of the United States because if they're so worried telling me to get out of the race, they must know I'm going to beat Hillary.' What's your take on anybody saying when you have to make a decision on what you're doing here?"
CHRISTIE: "First of all, no Republican primary voters give a damn what the "New York Times" editorial page thinks. So let's start off with that.  And secondly, the editorial is interesting, right, because on the one hand, it says, I'm not competent to be a presidential candidate, but on the other hand it says, he's competent enough to go back and fix New Jersey, which is what he should be doing. You can't have it both ways, but they get to have it both ways. You know why? Because no one gets to question them. You don't come and sit with you and you ask them about the inconsistencies in what they're doing. Here's what I know. I'm out there working hard, getting great response from people around the country, and I've work very hard and continue to work very as governor of New Jersey. So, you know what, I don't care what the "New York Times" thinks. I take a bow, actually, for it."
