“Trump Is Scared to Death of Chris Christie” – Trump Doesn’t Have the Guts to Go Up Against Christie in Live Debates According to Morning Joe

As the political landscape heats up in anticipation of the upcoming GOP presidential primary debate, the question on everyone’s mind is whether former President Donald Trump will make an appearance on the debate stage.

Joe Scarborough, Morning Joe host, and conservative columnist Matt Lewis discussed the speculation surrounding Trump’s potential participation and his motivations.

Lewis, in a candid conversation, spoke about the matter, suggesting that it would be the “Ultimate Trump Flex” if the ex-commander-in-chief were to turn himself into Georgia authorities, who recently charged him with his fourth indictment of the year, and then proceed directly to the debate stage.

Lewis said, “If Donald Trump shows up, I think the biggest flex would be to turn himself in, you know, to surrender himself and then go to the debate.”

“I think Donald Trump shows, look, I can walk and chew gum at the same time. And so I think if you add that in and just his compulsive need for attention, I think he shows,” Lewis added.

However, Scarborough offered a differing perspective, positing that Trump’s decision whether to attend the debate is motivated by a sense of caution, particularly in regard to his potential rival Chris Christie.

Scarborough emphasized that Trump has witnessed firsthand the impact of Christie’s confrontational style, referencing the memorable moment when Christie challenged Marco Rubio during a debate.

“He saw what Chris Christie did to Marco Rubio when Chris Christie went into a debate with one thing in mind, he knows Chris Christie put Jared Kushner’s father in jail for a very long time. He knows he’s a prosecutor who’s ruthless and knows how to push his case. And he also knows that his secret sauce in 2016 was being the disrupter. Right?” Scarborough stated.

He Has the Gut Instinct

“Shaking Hillary Clinton up on the debate stage, shaking Marcos and everybody else up on the debate stage. That gig that’s like eight years old, right? That’s Elvis in ’77 now. And I think Chris Christie’s got his number and he knows Donald Trump has the gut instinct. Obviously, his political gut instinct is second to none like he sees it coming,” Scarborough explained.

“And so I think he’s scared to death of Chris Christie and will not have the guts to go or the nerve to go on stage with Chris Christie anywhere,” Scarborough ended.

One user wrote, “I think Christie will challenge everything about him and all the past. I am sure he will do the same and call him fat.”
