News media across the Garden State wants the governor gone over his Trump endorsement, failed presidential campaign
New Jersey wasn't a fan of Chris Christie before he entered the GOP race for president, and now, after a failed White House campaign and his stunning endorsement of Donald Trump, seven newspapers in a joint editorial Tuesday state theyÂ want the governor to resign.
What an embarrassment. What an utter disgrace.
Weâ€™re fed up with Gov. Chris Christieâ€™s arrogance.
Weâ€™re fed up with his opportunism.
Weâ€™re fed up with his hypocrisy.
Weâ€™re fed up with his sarcasm.
Weâ€™re fed up with his long neglect of the state to pursue his own selfish agenda.
"For the good of the state, itâ€™s time for Christie to do his long-neglected constituents a favor and resign as governor. If he refuses, citizens should initiate a recall effort," the newspapers in a joint editorial stated, as USA Today reports.
In "Step down, Gov. Christie," the papers add,
"Weâ€™re disgusted with hisÂ endorsement of Donald TrumpÂ after he spent months on the campaign trail trashing him, calling him unqualified by temperament and experience to be president."
"And weâ€™re fed up with his continuing travel out of state on New Jerseyâ€™s dime, stumping for Trump, after finally abandoning his own presidential campaign."
"For the good of the state, itâ€™s time for Christie to do his long-neglected constituents a favor and resign as governor. If he refuses, citizens should initiate aÂ recall effort."
