Chris Christie has no sympathy for Ted Cruz

Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said Friday that he wasn’t particularly sympathetic toward Republican Sen. Ted Cruz, who was criticized for a trip to Cancun earlier this week while his home state of Texas suffered from blackouts caused by extreme winter weather.

Speaking with host Guy Benson on Fox News Radio, Christie addressed the many memes and photo mashups that had been created from images of Cruz at the airport ― including one that placed the Texas senator alongside Christie on a New Jersey beach.

In 2017, Christie was photographed at the beach after closing all beaches in the state due to a budget impasse, making him the subject of criticism and numerous memes himself.
