Make no mistake, we have been very critical of President Obama for skipping the funeral of iconic First Lady, Nancy Reagan, so he could attend a music festival.
But we’re just as critical of Republicans who seemingly can’t get their priorities straight as well.
An example of that is Governor Chris Christie, who we’d like to point out is a weapons-grade jackwagon for skipping the funeral of a slain New Jersey State Trooper. Why? Because he has to campaign for his keeper, Donald Trump.
Gov. Chris Christie will not attend the Monday funeral of the New Jersey State Trooper who was killed in the line duty last week, and will instead spend the day campaigning out of state for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.
Sean Cullen, 31, was responding to a car fire on I-295 last Monday when he was accidentally struck by a passing motorist. He died of his injuries a few hours later.
The Cullen funeral Mass will begin at noon at Saint Charles Borromeo Roman Catholic Church in Cinnaminson Township. Cullen will be laid to rest at Lakeview Memorial Park, also in Cinnaminson, immediately afterwards.
A Christie spokesman refused to answer questions about the snub and was unable to say when the governor might be able to mosey on back to the state he’s allegedly still governing.
In fact, the spokesman instead referred all questions to the Trump campaign because they apparently are running the state of New Jersey these days.
This marks the third straight police officer funeral Christie has missed due to the 2016 campaign.
Late last year, the Republican governor tried to declare ‘Law Enforcement Appreciation Day’ in his state, saying “it’s important for the state to recognize and acknowledge the great sacrifice and contribution all of you are making.”
No word from the Trump campaign on whether or not Christie will be removed from his leash after the election in November.
