Chris Christie Endorses Trump

From the New York Times:
Chris Christie Endorses Donald Trump and Calls Marco Rubio ‘Desperate’ Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey endorsed Donald J. Trump on Friday, a major turn in a wild race and one that gives the New York businessman a major boost as he heads into the pivotal “Super Tuesday” contests. 
Mr. Christie was a candidate for president himself until he came in sixth place in New Hampshire’s primary. 
Seeing his political career facing an abrupt conclusion after his failed presidential campaign, he expressed his anger Friday at Senator Marco Rubio, who he was said to be upset with, blaming the “super PAC” backing the Florida senator for halting his momentum in New Hampshire with a string of slash-and-burn ads. 
The endorsement came a day after Mr. Rubio, in a withering debate performance, turned his guns on Mr. Trump for the first time, and followed up with his attacks on Friday morning, calling Mr. Trump a “con artist.” 
At Friday’s news conference announcing the endorsement, which was peppered with demeaning insults of Mr. Rubio by the two men, Mr. Christie repeatedly attacked Mr. Rubio, calling his behavior at the debate “desperate” and reflective of a “losing campaign.”

And how is the GOP establishment feeling about this development?

See their Twitter feeds.

Christi is an adamant Islamophile/Islamopanderer.

Chris Christie is also bitter about Rubio's efforts and money spent against him in New Hampshire, a state in which Christie invested his time and assets heavily.

RINOs like Christi are reading the writing on the wall. Rather than be tossed like yesterday's trash, each will swallow their pride, cough up endorsements anticipating political favoritism (next opportunity at the taxpayer trough) and infiltrate their perceived opposition to continue further manipulation.

A small fork in the road, if you will.

Hopefully, Trump's business acumen gives him an advantage over the average career politician to sniff out the career Islamopanderer's b.s. and use him to his own advantage.

Christie's endorsement cut Rubio's happy dance today off at the knees and Trump kept his momentum. He didn't lose any significant support last night, and is back on the hump.

At least that's how I see it.

Rubio won, looking like a happy terrier. Cruz didn't lose and Trump ended up on his feet, better because of media focus on his way to Super Tuesday.

Yeah, Rubio is looking like a happy terrier. Great simile.
