Christie Still Backs Trump, But Calls Comments ‘Indefensible’

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie still supports Donald Trump even though he finds the Republican presidential candidate’s sexually aggressive comments “completely indefensible.”

Christie on Tuesday for the first time publicly addressed what Trump has described as “locker room talk” during an appearance on New York City sports radio station WFAN-AM.

In the 2005 recording released Friday, Trump is heard saying he can grab, kiss and “do anything” with women because he is famous. He has denied that he’s ever grabbed women without their consent.

Christie says he made it clear to Trump on Friday that kind of talk, even in private, is unacceptable and the candidate had to be contrite and apologetic.

Christie says he would have apologized differently, but he believes Trump is sorry and embarrassed.
