This might be the quietest the audience has been as the guest is walking out.

That's how you run an interview. Be kind to your guest, but don't ignore the elephant in the room.

I like how the band played loud to cover no applause.

The band is playing extra loud to cover for the fact that no one cheered for Christie's entry.

So much respect for Stephen for remaining pleasant while radiating cool contempt.

Chris Christie "blew it" with his partial shutdown of George Washington Bridge access. Imagine creating a multi-day massive traffic jam and interfering with interstate travel and emergency vehicles ... just to punish a local Democratic mayor for not endorsing him. For days he totally ignored desperate pleas to reopen access. It was so bad that the Governor of a different state (NY) had to order the Port Authority to stop the closure. Imagine screwing your own state so badly that the Governor of a different state has to step in to stop the evil stupidity. Yep, that was Chris Christie blowing it.

The only thing Christie knows how to shut down is a bridge.

Trump is doing a great job, as a Russian asset with a goal of destroying American democracy.

Can we give it up for Stephen staying mature and pleasant this entire interview? A potentially uncomfortable interview made less so-this is how we facilitate discussion.

Sure, drink alcohol but don't smoke pot . It's so much safer .

Overfed and overprivileged, Christie is the face of corruption.

Author — EarthFire


He's the most unlikable man trying too hard to be likable.

Funny and clever how Stephen Colbert uses the title of Christie's book "let me finish" to actually shut Christie up a few times😉

Sometimes Stephen Colbert, Seth Myers, Bill Maher, etc interview someone who I generally don’t agree with their political views. But you come away with a bit of respect for them as a person, and respect for those different opinions. This wasn’t one of those moments.

Worst governor IN NJ history, when the folks who know you best hate your

Awe, Poor Crusty! Did he have a rough commute because the snow in NJ during the 11/18 snowfall wasn't cleared fast enough??? At least the roads and bridges were all open, unlike what he did in bridge gate. He's lucky he was never indicted.
