This past Sunday on ABC's this week, hosted by George Stephanopoulos, a former New Jersey governor, Chris Christie, formerly also I think a good Republican friend of Donald Trump's. Chris Christie finally admitted what the rest of the country has been saying for two weeks. And that is that Trump and his legal team and all their legal challenges are quote national embarrassments. Here's what Chris Christie had to save verbatim. Uh, Stephanopoulos asked him, is it finally time for this to end Christie's response? Yes. The president has had an opportunity to access the courts. And I said to you, you know, George starting at 2:30 AM on Wednesday morning. If you've got the evidence of fraud present it and what's happened there. Uh, here is quite frankly the conduct of the president's legal team has been a national embarrassment. Oh yeah. You're not wrong about that, Christie. You're not, although what I do want to say is this whole Republican argument that we've seen, we've seen Chris Christie make it, you know, we have seen, uh, Ted Cruz make it, we have seen Rubio, make it all these, you know, people who still want to have a future in politics.

They say, well, listen, Hey, he's got the right to take this thing to court. He's got the right to challenge these things. It's within his constitutional rights, his legal rights. He can do this. Let's see how it plays out. Here's the thing though. You really, I guess on paper, technically you do, but in practice, you really don't. You don't get to just go into court and be like, hi, your honor. I'm not happy that I lost

K. That's what

The Trump legal team has done. You don't have a right to do that. I'm sorry, but you don't. If you have legitimate grievances, if you had actual evidence, if you knew for a fact or had a good idea, more than just crazy Republican hearsay, then you'd have a right to go to court. But no, you don't have a right to just walk into a court and say, I'm not happy about a thing.

Oh, well that's life

With it. Like a grownup. So no saying Trump has legal right to do this. That's total BS argument made by people who are too weak to take a stand. And that's what Chris Christie was last week, 2:30 AM on Wednesday. According to him, if he has opened his loan and presented of note, and then on Sunday. Yeah, they're a national embarrassment. Chris they've always been a national embarrassment. Rudy Giuliani has been an international embarrassment throughout this entire Trump administration.

And that's the

Thing we have to consider folks. This isn't just national. It's not just us watching in horror as Trump attempts to solve CU. And as his legal team goes out there, it looks like the dumbest lawyers, you know, even the Simpsons, couldn't write a lawyer this stupid,

But internationally. What do they think? I know we've got a

Lot of international viewers here. I am curious to know, like, what's the media in your country reporting on this
