Big Chris is back, and this time he’s dishing on all his friends. Oh, and nothing is his fault.
- Christie writes about how Trump told him he was too fat and that he needed to slim down. “You gotta look better to be able to win” in politics, Trump told him over dinner in 2005. During the 2016 presidential campaign, he also urged Christie to wear longer ties — like the president’s — because it would make him look thinner.
- He trashes Trump’s pick for attorney general, Jeff Sessions, saying that the arch-conservative former Alabama senator was “not-ready-for-prime-time” and that his recusal from the special counsel’s Russia probe led to its expansion. Christie himself wanted the job, but he was blackballed by Kushner and Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, according to the book.
- Christie also slammed disgraced former national security adviser Mike Flynn, who faces sentencing for lying to the FBI about his contacts with Russia, branding him “the Russian lackey and future federal felon.”
