CRINGE: Chris Christie taunts Trump for skipping debate by giving him a new nickname

Former President Donald Trump skipped out of the second GOP debate, and the other Republican candidates were not pleased.

The candidates took their hits at Trump and mentioned that he should have been on the debate stage, and Sara Gonzales sort of agrees.

“I personally, selfishly wanted him on the debate stage, throwing jabs, because that’s great content to watch. I also understand that if I were advising Donald Trump, I would have said ‘Don’t go, like, just let them have the JV tryouts. You’re up so far in the polls, why would you go?’” Gonzales says.

Chris Christie had one of the most notable Trump insults, which Gonzales jokes might have “just ended Donald Trump’s campaign right on the spot.”

“I want to look at that camera right now and tell you Donald, I know you’re watching. You can’t help yourself. I know you’re watching, okay? And you’re not here tonight, not because of polls and not because of indictments, you’re not here tonight because you’re afraid of being on the stage and defending your record,” Christie said, pointing at the camera.

“You’re ducking these things,” he continued, “and let me tell you what’s going to happen. You keep doing that, no one up here is going to call you Donald Trump any more — we’re going to call you Donald Duck.”

Christie ended his insult looking extremely pleased with himself.

Gonzales stifles a laugh, asking, “How does Trump survive that?”

“How many times do you think he practiced that in the mirror?” she asks her guests.

“A lot,” Jaco Booyens laughs.

“He’s probably been wanting to say that for years, right, it’s his moment.”

“He should fire whoever told him it was a good idea to say that,” Gonzales says.

Carl Benjamin disagrees with a smile, adding, “I don’t think he can; I bet he came up with it himself.”
