Bret Baier Has to Scold Audience After They Won’t Stop Booing Christie for Attacking Trump

During a GOP debate moderated by Fox News anchor Bret Baier, a noteworthy moment emerged as the audience’s reactions intensified, particularly when Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ) criticized former President Donald Trump. Baier took a pause to address the continuous booing directed at Christie.

The segment commenced with Baier asking, “If former President Trump is convicted in a court of law, would you still support him as your party’s choice?” Six candidates raised their hands in affirmation, excluding Gov. Asa Hutchinson (R-AK), while Christie playfully wagged his finger from side to side.

Baier sought clarification from Christie, “Hold on. To just be clear, Governor Christie, you were kind of late to the game. But you raised your hand?”

Christie responded, “No, I am doing this,” indicating the finger wag, “not this,” as he then raised his hand.

Christie continued with a more serious tone, “Here’s the bottom line; Someone’s got to stop normalizing this conduct, OK? Whether or not you believe that the criminal charges are right or wrong, the conduct is beneath the office of president of the United States,” which drew both cheers and boos. “And, you know, this is the great thing about this country, booing is allowed but it doesn’t change the truth. It doesn’t change the truth.”

Christie’s remarks sparked a heated exchange with Vivek Ramaswamy. Toward the end of their discussion, Christie attempted to make another point, but the crowd’s noise interrupted him.

“You know, let me tell you something,” Christie began, “You make me laugh because you sit here and answer—”

His words were drowned out by a chorus of jeers and boos.

Baier intervened, turning his attention to the audience, “Hold on, Governor Christie.”

Baier steered the conversation, acknowledging the distraction, “So, listen, the more time we spend doing this, the less time they can talk about issues you want to talk about. So, let’s just get through this section,” he said, before redirecting the focus back to the candidates.
