Chris Christie, in tonight’s debate, discussing today’s shut down of the Los Angeles school district, some 900 + schools, on an emailed threat now deemed a hoax:
“Think about the mothers who will take those children tomorrow morning to the bus stop wondering whether their children will arrive back on that bus safe and sound. Think about the fathers of Los Angeles, who tomorrow will head off to work and wonder about the safety of their wives and their children.”
Ugh. Cringeworthy. What gauzy, throwback 1950’s Republican fantasy world is he living in? His wife is an executive, for chrissakes. And in addition to the out-of-date rigid gender roles he seems to be dreaming of, Christie also road-tested the idea that POTUS is actually responsible for the disruption in LA schoolkids’ lives today.
I see that Washington Post got an annotated transcript up pretty fast tonight.
