You want to know how marginalized New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has become in his pointless pursuit of the presidency?
The Dallas Cowboys butt boy used it as the highlight of his campaign last night!
During Wednesday night’s Republican presidential debate in Colorado, however, we learned that not everyone is a fan of fantasy football.
Near the end of the debate, CNBC moderator Carl Quintanilla asked Jeb Bush whether the former Florida governor thought fantasy football is gambling and thus should be subject to federal regulation.
Bush has made it no secret in the past that he is a fantasy fan — and player — so he answered the question by immediately singing the praises of Rob Gronkowski and Ryan Tannehill, and their contributions to his 7-0 record in fantasy.
Before U.S. Senator and fellow Floridian Marco Rubio could piggyback off the comments, an incredulous New Jersey governor Chris Christie interrupted … and went off.
“Are we really talking about getting the federal government involved in fantasy football? Wait a second. We have $19 trillion in debt. We have people out of work, we have ISIS and Al Qaeda attacking us and we’re talking about fantasy football? Can we stop? Can we stop? How about this? How about we get the government to do what they’re supposed to be doing? Secure our borders, protect our people and support American values and American families. Enough on fantasy football. Let people play, who cares?”
