Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie sparred with Joy Behar
during an appearance on The View on Friday, telling the
liberal co-host she was absolutely wrong for saying
Republicans dont want to spend money in order to help people
amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Christie was explaining that lawmakers on both sides of the
aisle have pushed for things they specifically wanted in the

We are still distributing hundreds of millions of dollars from
the last bill both sides are going to negotiate on this, its
the typical legislative process, Christie said. Democrats want
the things they want, the Republicans will want the things they
want and they will ultimately, I believe, come to a compromise
as they have on the three bills before this.
Behar, an outspoken liberal, threw up her hands and disagreed
with the former New Jersey governor, accusing Republicans of not
wanting to help people.

They always seem to have money to give tax breaks to rich
people in this country, or money to bolster the military, but
when it comes to actually helping people, the Republicans dont
all of the sudden, We dont have any money, Behar said,
referring to Americans who are frustrated with coronavirus-
related lockdowns and continuing stay-at-home orders.
Behar then attempted to move on to another topic, but Christie
defended his party.
First let me talk about your first point, which is that
Republicans voted overwhelmingly for all of the aid for small
business people across this country twice. Republicans voted
overwhelmingly for $1,200 checks that have gone to every one of
the taxpayers out there who qualify, Christie said.
Republicans have voted for aid to hospitals and front-line
health care workers.
Chris Christie to Joy Behar: "That's just wrong. Thats
absolutely wrong. Its your point of view, and youre welcome to
it, but you're not welcome to your own set of facts."

Christie said it was unfair for Behar to say Republicans dont
support the issues that she suggested, calling it a typical
Democratic talking point.
Behar fired back, Then why is everybody crying that they have
no money? They have no job and they cant they have no job and
they have no money. Why is everybody upset, running out into the
streets and defying the rules, why? Tell me.

Theyre saying they want their jobs back, they want food. They
want to pay their rent, they want to pay their mortgages, they
dont have enough money for that. Thats what theyre crying
about. I dont see the Republican Party helping them, all
theyre doing is blaming everybody else, Behar said.
"That's just wrong. Thats absolutely wrong. Its your point of
view, and youre welcome to it, but you're not welcome to your
own set of facts," Christie said. The Republicans have voted to
support all of those programs you just talked about.
