Trump & Christie to voters: ...remember all that bad stuff we said about each other, never mind!!!

Right wing voters love Trump because he's been brutally honest about the bullshit Republicans have been peddling for years, calling them out on it, with voters nodding in agreement. He called out Walker's lousy economic and jobs record; Christie on Bridgegate and the 9 state credit downgrades; Rubio's mindless repeated pitch; Cruz' campaign of lies.  Every Republican campaign dirty trick is currently being used against their own candidates, and I'm loving it.

But you have to laugh at Chris Christie's endorsement of Trump, after everything these two said about each other...truly horrible things that obliterated the others character, things they can never take back. Will Republican voters play along with this charade?

I started the clip below with Christie's contradictory comments, along with Rubio and Trumps juvenile playground shouting match and criticisms. This is what passes for "adults" in Republican world?



CHRISTIE ON TRUMP:
WRONG TEMPERAMENT: "Donald's a great guy and a good person, but I just don't think he's suited to be president of the United States. I don't think his temperament is suited for that and I don't think his experience is. He's got great experiences in doing things in business, but ... if he doesn't get what he wants from (then-House Speaker) John Boehner, he can't fire him. " — On Fox News in August.
PAJAMA MAN: "He sits in his jammies in Trump Tower and phones in. You guys don't let any of the rest of us do that." — To Sean Hannity, after Trump announced he would skip a January Fox News debate. Christie also drew a pointed contrast to Trump in saying he didn't "whine and moan and complain and walk away" after he was relegated to an earlier undercard debate.
MUSLIM BAN: SAY WHAT?: "This is the kind of thing that people say when they have no experience and don't know what they're talking about. We do not need to endorse that type of activity, nor should we." On Michael Medved's radio show in December, after Trump called for a temporary ban on Muslims entering the U.S.
A REAL CHARACTER: "Showtime is over. It's time to pick a president. We're not picking a legislator-in-chief. We're not picking an entertainer-in-chief. We're not casting a TV show. This is real." —During a December visit to New Hampshire, during which he also labeled Trump "a real character."
TRUMP ON CHRISTIE:
A BRIDGE TOO FAR: "Here is the story: The George Washington Bridge, he knew about it." — Addressing Christie's role in the bridge scandal, speaking in New Hampshire in December. Two of Christie's former aides have been charged with closing two lanes of the bridge to tie up traffic as political payback. Christie has denied any knowledge, and a state-financed investigation cleared him. Trump added that Christie "can't win because of his past."
A CHILD: "It was unbelievable. He was like a little boy: 'Oh, I'm with the president.'" Mocking Christie's enthusiastic welcome of President Barack Obama to New Jersey after Superstorm Sandy. Trump, speaking in New Hampshire in December, said Christie acted like a "little child."
NO HELP: Christie's appearance with Obama cost 2012 Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney "a lot of votes." — Trump in New Hampshire in December.
CREDIT CRUNCH: Trump has also swiped at Christie for New Jersey's nine credit downgrades on the governor's watch.
