Chris Christie should have stuck to being Trump’s delivery boy because he just got owned for pretending to prosecute Hillary Clinton.
Despite not breaking any laws and not being charged by law enforcement of the Justice Department and being largely cleared by the House committee investigating her, Hillary Clinton was the subject of a mock trial put on by Donald Trump’s manservant Chris Christie, who used to be a prosecuting attorney.
During the Republican National Convention, Christie whipped the crowd of conservative lunatics into a frenzy as he brought up Clinton’s emails and Benghazi and the Iran nuclear deal in his solo effort to “indict” the Democratic nominee in Cleveland on Tuesday night.
“It is our obligation to stop Hillary Clinton now, and never let her get within 10 miles of the White House again,” Christie bellowed as the crowd chanted “Lock her up” and “guilty” as if they were judge, jury, and executioner.
“We’re getting there,” Christie responded as if promising to imprison Hillary if Trump wins in November.
Here is a pair of videos of the disgraceful event via Twitter.

Again, Hillary Clinton has been cleared of any wrongdoing and only the most rabid Hillary haters think she actually committed a crime. But that apparently isn’t stopping Trump’s extremist supporters from believing they have the power to deliver their brand of vigilante justice.
But as much as Christie pretended to “indict” Hillary Clinton, his effort was ironic and hypocritical considering he is still in the middle of his own legal scandal as Hillary Clinton and her team gleefully reminded everyone in response to the mock trial.

Yep. Bridgegate. You know, that time Chris Christie closed parts of the George Washington Bridge to cause traffic issues as a form of political retribution against Democratic mayors who refused to endorse him. Christie also deleted emails and texts to cover up his part in the scandal, which is a real scandal unlike the bullshit “scandals” drummed up by House Republicans in their effort to persecute Hillary Clinton and sabotage her quest to become president.
Chris Christie would have been better off just giving a boring speech instead of pulling this kind of stunt, especially since his own scandal cost him his own shot at being the Republican nominee. Now he is just Donald Trump’s lapdog.
