*Some 200 people packed into Iowa’s Mickey’s Country Cafe Wednesday morning to hear GOP presidential candidate Chris Christie at a town hall meeting, where he was eventually asked about how he would support law enforcement as president.

A mother of two police officers posed the question, and Christie used the occasion to sound off against the Black Lives Matter movement as a whole, and Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton’s willingness to meet with their representatives.

“I think all lives matter,” said Christie, who was standing in a cafe where a lever-action rifle hung inside its entrance with the words “We Don’t Dial 911” above it.

“But let me tell you this: When a movement like that calls for the murder of police officers…no President of the United States should dignify a group like that by saying anything positive about them, and no candidate for president, like Hillary Clinton, should give them any credibility by meeting with them, as she’s done.”

Last month, Clinton had met privately with members of the Black Lives Matter movement while in Washington D.C. for the National Council of Negro Women.

Christie vowed never to do so.

“I want the Black Lives Matter people to understand: Don’t call me for a meeting. You’re not getting one.”

  1. Why would they be interested in “calling” a candidates with only a 1% chance of becoming president?
    Last time Christie was polling at 2% in the nomination race, twice what it would be for president.

  2. First of all Republicans are racist bigots. Who would waste their time calling anyone of the racist pigs and furthermore Chris Christie WILL NEVER WALK HIS OVERSIZED BODY INTO THE WHITE HOUSE AS PRESIDENT SO NO BODY CARES WHAT HE SAYS. Chris Christie needs to do what he do best lie and be part of scandals like closing bridges.
