When You Punch Teachers Unions, You’re Punching Teachers

Cross–posted with Jersey Jazzman.

Fortunately, I was outside of the country when Chris Christie sank to his latest new low:

The New Jersey governor was on CNN on Sunday, where host Jake Tapper asked, “At the national level, who deserves a punch in the face?” (Why would Christie get that question? Because he has made it known he likes to deal with bullies by punching them in the face, an approach that would work well in the Oval Office, no?) According to this story by my Post colleague Lyndsey Layton, Christie did not hesitate with a response: “Oh the national teachers union, who has already endorsed Hillary Clinton 16, 17 months before the election.”

If you’re at all shocked or surprised by this, you haven’t been paying attention to Chris Christie. The man insults teachers as easily as you and I breathe.
