Chris Christie: Obama ‘Pushed Around’ by ‘His Buddy’, CBS’ Steve Kroft

Republican presidential candidate Chris Christie said President Obama was “pushed around” by 60 Minutes correspondent Steve Kroft in an interview Sunday.

“This weakling in the White House, who got pushed around last night, by the way, by Steve Kroft,” Christie said Monday morning on MSNBC’s Morning Joe. “We saw that. I mean pushed around by Kroft. I mean, when Kroft starts pushing the president around because he’s basically been his, you know, buddy for the last seven years.” Last night’s interview was Kroft’s 10th one-on-one with Obama.

Christie said if he were president, he’d be tougher–and would enforce a no-fly zone in Syria. “My first phone call would be to Vladimir. And I’d say, listen, we’re enforcing this no fly zone…and I mean we’re enforcing it against anyone, including you. So don’t try me. Don’t try me. Because I’ll do it.”
