Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie writes that former President Donald Trump was “right next to himself out of rage” at the White House correspondent’s dinner in 2011 after then-President Barack Obama shook him over his promotion of the racist “birth” conspiracy theory.

At the annual dinner in Washington, Obama famously joked that since his long birth certificate had been released, Trump could move on to other outrageous conspiracy theories. Trump, then host of NBC’s “Celebrity Apprentice,” sat in the audience glowing.

“It was fascinating and unbearable at the same time,” writes Christie, who also attended the dinner, about seeing Obama’s roast and Trump’s reaction in his book, “Republican Rescue: Saving the Party from Truth Deniers, Conspiracy Theorists, and the Dangerous Policies or Joe Biden. ” “[Obama] never turned his gaze away from the man who had questioned his right to be president. He showed no mercy to Donald Trump. ”

Christie said Trump was furious after the event. Some have speculated that the evening of public humiliation helped boost Trump’s desire to run for president four years later.

“I talked to Donald after dinner,” Christie said. “He was angry like I had never seen him before. Just out of himself with rage.”

In his book, Christie is critical of Trump’s aggressive promotion of the birth conspiracy theory that Trump pushed forward to September 2016, writing that it “paved the way for wave after wave of other conspiracies to come, wild fantasies, far-fetched claims, bizarre claims and outright lies. ”

He added: “It showed that personal lies, even when openly disproved, can still do political harm. Lies, even discredited lies, never really go away.”

But despite what Christie writes were Trump’s blatant lies, Christie Trump delivered significant political momentum when he became one of the first prominent Republican politicians to support his 2016 presidential election.
