|I'm just going to stand back here until he notices me.|
While minding my own business at the Starbucks inside the Westin hotel this morning, I saw a man engage Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort in conversation about the VP selection process. The man, whom I couldn't identify, suggested that Pence was a smart pick and Gingrich would've been a disaster.
"Christie was livid, right?" the man said at one point. "Yeah," Manafort replied.
Christie has made no secret that he was disappointed he wasn't chosen to be Donald Trump's running mate. "[I] don't like coming in second. Ever," Christie said Thursday. But the conversation overheard by THE WEEKLY STANDARD Sunday suggests Christie's feelings were far more intense than mere disappointment.
I don't get it.
Christie was loyal.
He was an aggressive surrogate.
Nobody can argue that he really fills out a baseball uniform.
So why did he not get the job?
After all how much shit do you have to eat for Donald Trump to put you on the ticket?
Well from the look of discomfort on the face of Mike Pence it must be quite a bit.
