It wasn’t just Christie who had been fired. It was the entire transition team – although no one ever told them so directly. As Nancy Cook reported in Politico, Bannon visited the transition headquarters a few days after he had given Christie the news, and made a show of tossing the work the people there had done for Trump into the bin. Trump was going to handle the transition more or less by himself. Not even Bannon thought this was a good idea. “I was fucking nervous as shit,” Bannon later told friends. “I go, ‘Holy fuck, this guy [Trump] doesn’t know anything. And he doesn’t give a shit.’”


Is this an "I'm Chris Christie, I know the Trump presidency is collapsing, and I want to be seen as a Republican criticizing them before it does" piece?

Either way, four adminstrations from now this is going to be an interesting chapter in high school history.
