The Star Ledger says former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is “knocked back” but “not knocked down,” while hospitalized with the coronavirus
TRENTON, N.J. — Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is “knocked back” but “not knocked down,” while hospitalized with the coronavirus, the Star Ledger reported Monday.
Christie said the virus is scary, of course, and that he’s a prime target given his weight and a history of asthma, according to the newspaper.
Christie called to “rub (Moran’s) nose” in a mistake he had made stemming from Christie’s 2012 visit to Jordan, according to the newspaper.
“So, for now, folks, let’s not worry too much. The man is knocked back, but he’s not knocked down,” Moran wrote.
Andrew Christie, the former governor’s son, who works in scouting for the New York Mets, said his father remains in a COVID isolation room at the hospital and is doing well.
Later Saturday, Christie said he had gone to the hospital for precautionary reasons including his history of asthma.
Messages seeking comment were left with Christie’s spokeswoman.
