Chris Christie turns down trump to be his chief of staff. That's a shame because Christie would have been perfect for trumps COS to help him drain the swamp. You don't suppose.....Naaahhhh

Interesting because this is the second time (at least) that Christie has turned down Trump. Yet he was a suck up during the election, being sure to show up at Trump rallies, etc. I saw him do it and saw the expression on his face. It was obvious he was positioning himself and it had to have been for a position in the administration. Yet he consistently turns Trump down. The only reason I can see is that he had an epiphany about working for Trump and has decided he does not want to subect himself to it.

I would not want to even start in DC with the present political climate there twisting the truth to unprecented levels in politics. I do not blame Christie. No way in hell would a sane person want their name dragged through the swamp they are trying to clean up.

Good. Not a fan.
Can Trump pick Kushner? Or is there some nepotism law to prevent it?

Sounds like the perfect job for The Man From Del Monte.

The president hadn’t made a final decision before Christie withdrew. He’s scheduled to have lunch on Friday with another candidate for the job, his former deputy campaign manager David Bossie.

So just another nothing-burger from the left.

It may have to be Kushner, by default.

People don't want it because they know their life and family would be destroyed by being in Trump's orbit. They don't want to be the next Kavanaugh, Flynn, or John Kelly.

I still think KellyAnne would be great. Her husband wouldn't like it one bit. It would serve him right.

Jared K. certainly has the qualifications that trump would appreciate.

To avoid the nepotism laws, Jared and Ivanka do not accept a salary as "advisors to the President". I'm not sure how that work with Jared as COS.

The clock is ticking on Kushner's arrest. It would probably be a wise idea to have a CoS who isn't about to be under threat of legal action.

Which narrows it down to...

Erm...

Uhm...

I expect Trump will decide to be his own Chief Of Staff.

The Good news is Crapstie turn down the Job. He is the swamp.

The bad news is Why the F would trump even offer it to that scumbag? Whos next Little Marco?
highly disappointing IMO not that Christie turned it down, but that he was even asked.

NO BUENO TRUMPO

From what I've read, Trump didn't offer him the job. Christie was just on his list of possible candidates and Christie requested he not be considered any longer. Obviously, the media is using flashy headlines to make it look as if Trump offered him the job and Christie rejected it.

Hopefully that is the case , either wise I wouldn't be surprised to see Hillary on his staff by end of 2019.

The giant douche Christie probably figured he couldn't personally benefit or do any pay-for-play in this administration so the corrupt fat bastard bailed.

I'm sure a lot of people who have things to hide would be cautious of working within the administration, it's quite polarizing and the dems have promised to constantly investigate. Not sayin', just sayin'.

Not a fan personally, but If I remember correctly the last time he turned him down was after there was a lot of talk of him taking a higher position leading up to that offer.

I doubt anyone that is actually qualified for the job will want it. If they did it is basically political suicide and most likely temporary.

If you have an future in politics you need to avoid Trump. Anyone near him becomes radioactive and draws so much fire. Think your family will be attacked the press will talk to the kid you picked on in grade school. Youll have people accuse you of anything and everything which will cost you money to defend yourself.

Really who in their right mind wants to go through this?
