A little over a year from now, Chris Christie's second term as the governor of New Jersey will end. Considering the odds of a Donald Trump presidency growing longer each day (the New York Times currently ranks his chances at 11 percent), speculation has been rampant about where Christie will land once his tenure ends.
"It sounds like he might be leaving politics once his tenure with the state of New Jersey is over," Francesa told the caller. "I gather it's something he's interested in, and if it is, that's something the station will have to decide.
Christie has certainly shown he is an avid fan of sports talk radio, frequently calling into WFAN's Boomer & Carton and acting as a fill-in host so many times he's been forced to defend the time he's spent on air to some New Jersey listeners.
"I don't miss any days. Every day that I'm up and awake and alive, I'm governor. I'm making decisions and doing things no matter where I am," Christie scolded one caller. "You don't have the first understanding that my job is a 24-hours-a-day, seven-days-a-week job."
"I'm really upset about what I heard," said Christie, telling co-host Craig Carton that Trump's comments were "indefensible," but there are larger issues in the election that matter more.
"It doesn't mean I'm comfortable with it, but it can't be the only thing you use to judge someone," Christie added.
"His ego is too big to settle in behind the scenes again," Politi wrote. "He loves the attention that comes from being a public figure."
