We need to renounce the conspiracy theorists and the truth deniers. The ones who know better and the ones who are just plain nuts. We need to give our supporters facts that will help them put all those fantasies to rest. — Republican Former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie

We need to quit wasting our time, our energy and our credibility on claims that won't ever convince anyone of anything. Pretending we won when we lost is a waste of time and energy and credibility. — Republican Former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie

No man, no woman, no matter what office they've held or wealth they've acquired, are worthy of blind faith or obedience. We deserve much better than to be misled by those trying to acquire or hold on to power. — Republican Former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie

Chris Christie says it is time for GOP to 'face the realities of the 2020 election'
"We need to renounce the conspiracy theorists and the truth deniers. The ones who know better and the ones who are just plain nuts," said Christie, speaking to an in-person audience at the Ronald Reagan Library in Simi Valley, California. "We need to give our supporters facts that will help them put all those fantasies to rest."

While the 59-year-old Republican stopped short of criticizing Trump by name, his critique of the GOP was clearly centered on the former President and his lies about the 2020 election.

"We need to quit wasting our time, our energy and our credibility on claims that won't ever convince anyone of anything," Christie said. "Pretending we won when we lost is a waste of time and energy and credibility."

He took another apparent shot at Trump by urging those gathered to not tie the party to one individual.

"No man, no woman, no matter what office they've held or wealth they've acquired, are worthy of blind faith or obedience," Christie said. "We deserve much better than to be misled by those trying to acquire or hold on to power."

... Christie called on Republicans to reject supporters of QAnon, White supremacists and those who believe in baseless claims of widespread election fraud.


"Slogans aren't nearly going to be enough. The time for snappy platitudes is well past us. And so are the grievances and falsehoods that have been spewed to us, that have stalled our party," he said.

He dismissed the idea that Republican candidates should accommodate these views in order to win votes.

"If timid acceptance is the price of admission, we're not the party we've always been," he said.
